Almond Cacao Sauce

Do you love chocolate covered almonds? Yeah? Then you'll love this recipe even more. Aaahhhh!!

Almond butter is perhaps one of my favorite nut butters (except for those times when all I want is peanut butter). What I love about almond butter is that it can go with almost anything! It complements all flavors very well, whether it's sweet or savory. 

Cacao + almond butter and a little bit of a sweetener. Heavenly.
