THE RILEY/LAND COLLECTION
Big Spoon Roasters is one of RLC’s original makers; I’ve carried their products since I opened. They experiment and play with flavor profiles, and I’m very excited they let me order a case of their Winter 2021 offering, a limited batch Chocolate Macaroon Almond Butter. It‘s akin to an Almond Joy or one of Sandra Kolka’s legendary chocolate-dipped macaroons.
“We don’t make mistakes; we just have happy accidents.” – Bob Ross
Happy accidents can inspire the greatest creations. In the case of our newest Limited Batch nut butter, Chocolate Macaroon Almond Butter, inspiration struck when BSR Operations Manager Kevin tasted some of their Toasted Coconut Almond Butter mixed with Chocolate Sea Salt Almond Butter. He fell in love with the rich, chocolatey, coconutty result and suggested it as a Limited Batch recipe.
Mark and the team took this idea and ran with it, developing the recipe based on these flavors and textures but leaning even more into the concept of a chocolate-covered coconut macaroon. They replaced our normally large coconut chips with shredded toasted coconut to mimic the unique chew of a macaroon and bumped up the amount of chocolate, because why not? The result was a nut butter so perfectly indulgent and popping with flavor, yet still significantly lower in sugar than other chocolate nut butters, that we could not wait to share it!

My only negative is that I didn't order more. This was grown and sexy sweet. Decadent. I'm glad I stumbled up on this treat. It was a wonderful find.
