I had this devilish idea to combine white chocolate chips and cinnamon with homemade almond butter over the weekend. I say devilish because now I can’t keep my grubby little paws off the stuff.

Every time I walk past the cabinet that houses the sweet butter, out it comes, off pops the lid, and in goes my spoon.

Help!
White Chocolate Cinnamon Almond Butter | www.themessybakerblog.comMaking almond butter—or any type of butter—at home is easy as pie. Well, even easier than pie. Gather a bunch of raw almonds and place them in the bowl of your food processor. Punch the “On” button and let her rip until the almonds turn creamy and buttery. The process takes about 10 minutes. If you’re a visual person (like me), you can visit my Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter post for step-by-step instructions.

Is it healthy? Meh. It’s better than, say, a slice of cake or a fully loaded ice cream sundae. So, yeah, in comparison, it’s healthy.

Now I’m imagining this white chocolate cinnamon almond butter melted and drizzled on top of chocolate ice cream—gah!

If you want to stay on the guilt-freeish path, I highly recommend dipping red, juicy strawberries into this buttah. I discovered this method the other day as I was cleaning my recently purchased strawberries. I dried one off, gave it a dip, and quickly shoved the entire thing in my mouth.

Bliss, you guys. Pure, unadulterated bliss.

This buttah is also good on the following: smooshed between graham crackers, dolloped on banana slices, smeared on toast, swirled into a yogurt parfait, and paired with apple dippers.

Can’t stop. Won’t stop. Don’t wanna stop.

You guys are going to love this butter. It’s sweet, creamy, and perfect for snacking. The hint of cinnamon adds a delicate, sweet warmth.

Now, go forth and make butter!
