I wonder if you could mix the almond butter with cream cheese and use as a bagel spread. Or thin it out and use it as a dipping sauce for PuPu platter type foods. Maybe use it in baking some sort of recipe that calls for peanut butter. OK, I came up with 3. You're on your own for the next couple.
I can't eat Nutella, but I don't find almond butter too sweet. Maybe there was sugar added? I know there is sugar added to some peanut butter.

Cashew butter! I would think it would be like making almond butter.

Oh, sorry, PF, you didn't want Shrek to see your stash....

I like the Maranatha Almond Butter the best. That goes on toast, on a spoon, licked off my fingers, on bread, tongue depressor (a new one), with apples, celery, etc. ad nauseum.

Put the cashews in a food processor, and pulse the heck out of them. I made almond butter last year, no salt or sugar, it was some good stuff. It took a long time to make into butter, I would think cashews would be easier to process, they're a lot softer. Costco use-up.

I just had four pieces of FinnCrisp with butter. Yum. I do love my crisp rye breads.

I like your idea of mixing the almond butter with cream cheese!

I agree with your assessment of Nutella. To me it tasted like chocolate thinned with water, and I couldn't taste any nut flavor at all.

After I finally broke down and bought some (it ain't cheap), I tried it a couple of times, couldn't stand it, and threw it out. Ugh!
