There are two kinds of people in this world: those who will catch a glimpse of a photo like this and dash for the nearest roll of Bounty in horror, and those who will want to mischievously swab their index finger through that river of almond butter and gleefully lap it up. I think it’s obvious by now which type I am.

Chocolate Bread Panini Week continues…today it’s all about the ooey and the gooey. You could definitely make an amazing PB&J with chocolate bread, but for the sake of trying something a little different I went with almond butter and fresh raspberries. Something interesting happens when you heat almond butter: it nearly liquefies into a puddle of rich, creamy, nutty goodness. By adding whole fresh raspberries, rather than preserves, you get these little sweet bursts with just a hint of tartness. It kind of reminded me of a warm candy bar. No two ways about it, this is a messy, indulgent snack.

Seriously, I’m not sure when I’m going to find time to make that chocolate bread but you sure do have me inspired. And funny, becaause before you even said anything about wanting to dip your finger in the drippy almond butter I could almost taste it just from looking at the photo (yep, that’s me too!) Thanks for another inspiring panini, Kathy!
