This food processor comes with a blender attachment and also has an in-built scale, so you can weigh your ingredients as you are adding them to the food processor. How cool is that? View/buy it here:

Set of mixing bowls
Pyrex bowls are really versatile and, no matter how many I have, I always run out. I use them for mixing, reheating food in the microwave, storing non-perishables, and freezing. Plus, they are dishwasher-safe! View/buy them here:

For one large jar of chocolate spread, you will need:
450g (3 cups) cashews
70g (1/2 cup) powdered sugar / icing sugar/ confectioners
25g (3 tbsp) cocoa powder
90g (1/3 cup) oil – I use sunflower oil but you can use any nut or vegetable oil. Avoid strongly flavored oils such as olive oil
100g dark chocolate (optional)
A splash of vanilla extract
Making chocolate spread is surprisingly easy, especially when using cashews, which, unlike hazelnuts, don’t need to be roasted and peeled beforehand. An added bonus is that this spread is vegan, so you can serve it to vegans or lactose intolerant people. I really hope you try this recipe and fall in love with it like I have.
