Embarrassing story time. So we all know that I am not the most observant person in the world. In fact, if there were an award for least observant person, I think I’d have a pretty good shot at it.
This is my best friend Jason’s favorite story to tell everyone we meet. He refers to it as “The Tootsie Roll Story”. I was 15 or 16 and we went to the grocery store together. When we came out, there was a man handing out tootsie rolls, and he asked if we’d like one. My immediate response was to ask if it was free. When Jason tells this story, he does a totally unrealistic portrayal of how I sounded. Jerk.
The way I remember it, the man said yes. In Jason’s version he says “I guess…”. So I took a tootsie roll (never mind the fact that I totally went against everything my mom taught me and took candy from a stranger…), and as we were walking away Jason tells me the guy was taking donations.
I was so embarrassed, and I asked if I should go back and apologize, but Jason was even more embarrassed by me and rushed me into the car. Hahaha…oyyyyy. The point is, I am totally unaware of my surroundings, and also I really love free things.
So when the awesome people at Blue Diamond were giving out actually free samples at Healthy Living Summit, I took, um…quite a few. I knew I wanted to use them to make some unique flavored nut butters, and I finally got around to putting them to use–specifically the caramel macchiato flavor. Just like when making honey roasted peanut butter (or honey roasted macadamia butter–my favorite!), all you have to do is throw in the one ingredient, scrape down the sides a few times, and let your food processor do the work! The result is a creamy, drippy, sweet almond butter with the bold flavors of caramel and espresso. Totally addicting.

- Place almonds in your food processor. Blend until a smooth nut butter forms. First, almonds will break down to a flour, then form a big ball. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Scrape down the sides and give food processor a break as necessary. Continue to blend until smooth and creamy, about an other 3-5 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to one month, or in a cool, dry place for 2-3 weeks.
