Looking for an easy homemade gift to dole out for the holidays? I’ve got you covered.
Ultra-creamy, rich, slightly sweet, and delicately spiced with nutmeg, this macadamia nut butter is reminiscent of the quintessential holiday beverage.
Now, macadamia nuts are not exactly cheap, so if you’re looking for a less expensive version, I suggest swapping out them out for cashews. You’ll still end up with a smooth, creamy, and rich nut butter. I would shy away from peanuts or almonds, though, because you want to start with a relatively blank canvas, and the flavor of those two nuts may compete with the nutmeg for center stage.
Spoon the macadamia nut butter into cute little jars, wrap with festive ribbon, and gift to family, friends, and/or coworkers. If they like eggnog, they’ll love this macadamia nut butter!
