Did Eating Well consider making these open-faced? Why does it have to be a chocolate sandwich? Like cream cheese on a Ritz cracker, these would work with only ONE PIECE of chocolate.

Altough this recipe looks good, it doesn't provide info about sugar content. I know you can look at packaging but it would be nice to give an estimate

This needs a "recipe?" We've been doing it for years. Chocolate bar + jar of peanut (or almond) butter. Dip, scoop, and nom.

Tree nut and peanut allergies in my house. No fitting substitute. Chocolate and fruit maybe.

Nut butters can almost always be easily made in your food processor or blender, just like hummus. For pistachio butter, throw a few handfuls of raw pistachios in and press "go" or "on" or "puree"...whatever gets it grinding at a moderate-to-high speed. Not smooth enough? Add a tiny bit of olive or canola oil (and hit "go" again). You might also want to throw in a bit of salt, as most--even "all natural" and "organic"--nut butters are salted.

A variety of nut butters should be available right with the usual peanut butter at your local grocery store. High-end stores will have a bigger variety. Some "fruit stands-turned-stores" have a bigger selection yet.

Where on earth do you get pistachio butter? Never heard of it but I love pistachios so wouldn't mind trying it. I eat cashew, almond and peanut butters already.
