Homemade Nutella – A delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Spread that will sweeten your mornings!
Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:15 mins
Total Time:1 hour 10 mins
Yield:1 mason jar 1x
1 cup hazelnuts
12 ounces milk chocolate chips, melted
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread hazelnuts on a baking sheet and put into your oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the hazelnuts from the oven and spread on a kitchen towel (be careful not to burn yourself). Top with another towel and rub the hazelnuts until the skins come off.
Let the nuts cool for 5 minutes or until you’re able to handle them.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate until smooth. You can use the microwave (which is what I did) and heat the chocolate in 30 second intervals until completely melted or use a double boiler.
Transfer the cooled hazelnuts to a food processor and pulse until a smooth paste forms, about 5 minutes. Add the oil, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt and puree until incorporated. Finally add the melted chocolate and blend really well.
Pour the chocolate hazelnut spread into a jar and let cool completely. Nutella will be set after 15-30 minutes.
Homemade Nutella will keep up to 2 weeks in your fridge.
