Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread almonds and hazelnuts on a large rimmed baking sheet and toast until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer toasted nuts to a food processor. Grind until nuts are as fine as possible, about 1 minute, scraping down the sides as needed.

In a small saucepan, heat almondmilk and dates over medium heat. Simmer until dates completely break down, about 10 minutes. Add date mixture, cocoa powder and vanilla extract to the food processor, and purée until very smooth.

Enjoy warm or chilled. The sauce freezes well and can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
