Once you try this dark chocolate and cardamom cashew spread recipe, you might be inspired to replace the chocolate hazelnut spread in your life forever. This chocolatey cashew butter recipe whips up in only 15 minutes, which we admit is dangerous information. With just the right blend of melted dark and milk chocolate, cocoa powder, and our fragrant cardamom cashews, you’re going to have a hard time resisting the urge to put it on everything. This cashew spread recipe doesn’t have any added sugar, getting all the sweetness it needs from chocolate and our naturally sweet and buttery nuts. It’s just the thing for turning a simple loaf of brioche into a sublime dessert, and it’s also ridiculously good on our brown butter pecan cookies, but you may be tempted to just serve it with a spoon.
