1. Put the cashews, dates and a pinch of salt in a big jam jar. Fill with water till they’re covered. Twist on the lid. Soak overnight or for at least 2 hrs.
2. Drain the water. Blitz or pound the cashews and dates in a food processor, blender or pestle and mortar to a smoothish paste. Blend in the remaining ingredients. Taste. Whizz in more cocoa powder for chocolateyness, or more dates for sweetness.
3. Keeps at room temp for a day or two or in the fridge for a week.

This is the best chocolate spread recipe I have tried. My kids love it. So many of the “Nutella alternative” recipes out there sweeten the mixture with maple or agave syrup. This one is sweetened with dates, a healthier option. I highly recommend it. Do be patient though, you have to grind it a long time to get the smooth consistency. It is well worth the effort!
