Expert Tips

We used unsweetened natural almond butter made just from almonds with no other additions. You can find almond butter next to the peanut butter or in the organic food section in your grocery store.

Bittersweet, dark, milk or semisweet chocolate chips will work in this recipe, so choose what you like.
