How to Make Nut Free Chocolate Spread
Here are the step by step instructions to make this spread!
Step 1: Melt the Chocolate and Wow Butter
Place the wow butter and chocolate chips in the same small microwave safe bowl.
Heat in 15 second increments, stirring after each time until completely melted.
Step 2: Serve
You can use the spread right away while it is liquidy or you can wait till it solidifies a bit.
Expert Baking Tips
- Melt Slowly- If you rush this process and try to even heat the chocolate and wow butter in 20 second increments (instead of 15 second increments), you can overheat the chocolate. If that happens it will seize up and basically not be usable.
- Reheat- It will become very hard and thick in the fridge. If you want it easier to spread, place in a heat safe bowl and microwave in 15 second increments until you get the desired consistency.
Wow Butter is a nut free butter spread that is made in a gluten free, tree nut free, peanut free, egg free and dairy free facility.
In addition, it also contains no seeds and is made of soy. The flavor truly reminds me of peanut butter!
Wow Butter is perfect for my household since my kids have issues with all those items aside from dairy (finally) and soy.
I am lucky enough to have this product in my local grocery store, but you can also buy Wow Butter on amazon.

Yes you can. Make sure to store it in a bowl, covered with plastic wrap in the fridge. It will solidify, so when ready to use, reheat in 15 second increments, stirring after each time, until the desired consistency.
