Dump almonds, cashew nuts, cocoa nibs, dark chocolate powder and stevia (seriously it's that easy) into a mixer jar of your choice. Set the mixer at it's lowest speed and blend for 30-40 secs. Work up the speed slowly to the next level and blend again for 30-40 seconds. Blend for at least 20 mins till the ingredients have blended into a smooth paste.
No extra oil or butter needs to be added. The cacoa nibs(lightly caramalised coco beans) will release natural coco butter, while almonds and cashew nuts release natural oils. Be patient with the blending job till it blends into a smooth and glistening consistency.
