Almond liqueur is awesome in coffee, soooo ergo, coffee is awesome in almond butter.
Yeah, that was about the extent of my thought process when coming up with this recipe. But, sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that turn out the best! I think I might be obsessed with this almond butter. I’m also obsessed with drippy food. Food dripping or oozing out of its container makes me want it more. I don’t know why. I’m weird.
I kind of, sort of, have to have caffeine first thing in the morning—shot of espresso, latte, black tea……this almond butter? All valid options! Actually, this spread on toast dipped in coffee is pretty remarkable.
This would also go great with something chocolatey. I feel a strong desire to make a Reese’s cup knock off with this stuff—kind of like these, but stuffed with this almond butter instead of the cajeta. If you do this, I’m going to definitely need to see a photo, so you can tweet it to me or post it on my Facebook. Actually, I want to see a photo even if you just make the almond butter….or any of my recipes. Basically, just share your food photos with me, haha.
This like all nut butters, is really stinkin’ easy to make. It’s going to take like 15 minutes of your time, but most of that time is spent watching almonds spin around. There’s basically no reason not to make this (um, unless you’re like Mikey and hate coffee…weird). Plus, it’d make a super cute gift for someone who you think is cool enough to deserve something so delicious!
