Almond Butter with Extra Dark Chocolate Creamy nut butter sandwiched between dark chocolate squares? Hold the phone. Use ground almond butter and two squares of dark chocolate to create a petite pick-me-up when you need a boost of protein with a touch of sweetness. The higher the percentage of dark chocolate, the less sugar. Go for 70 to 85 percent cacao.
