Home made chocolate nut spread, nothing artificial, low salicylate.


  • 1/4 cup Raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup Powdered milk
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons Cornflour (wheaten)
  • 160ml Milk
  • 3 teaspoons Sunflower oil


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spread the cashews on a baking tray and place in the preheated oven for 6 minutes or until toasted and aromatic. Place nuts in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely ground. Use a mortar and pestle to grind finer, if required.
2. Sift the sugar, corn flour and cocoa into a bowl, add nuts and milk powder and mix well.
3. Transfer the dry ingredients to a saucepan and gradually stir in the milk and oil, and mix well. Cook over medium-high heat until a thick paste forms, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
4. Remove from heat and transfer the spread to a heatproof airtight container and set aside, uncovered, to cool to room temperature.
5. Store in the fridge, for up to 2 weeks.
