    2      ounces        semisweet chocolate chips
    1      cup           roasted unsalted cashews or
                         toasted blanched almonds
      1/2  cup           butter -- cut up
 
 In a small heavy saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly
 until chocolate begins to melt.  Immediately remove the chocolate from heat;
 stir until smooth.  Cool slightly.
 
 Place nuts in a food processor or blender; cover and process or blend until
 nuts are very finely chopped, stopping and scraping the sides as necessary.
  Add butter; process or blend until nearly smooth.  Transfer mixture to a
 bowl; stir in melted chocolate.  Serve at room temperature.  Use to spread on
 croissants, muffins or biscuits.  Makes 1 cup.
