Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread (aka NUTELLA!)

1/3 cup (40g) whole almonds
1 1/3 cup (160g) hazelnuts
1 3/4 cup (400g) whole milk
7/8 cup (60g) nonfat dry milk, recipe called for powdered whole milk
3 tablespoons (40g) honey, mild-flavored
1 pinch of salt
170 g bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
140 g milk chocolate, chopped

Recipe Directions for Homemade Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread (aka NUTELLA!)

  1. 1. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet, keeping the almond separate, and toast the nuts in a 350F (180C) oven, stirring a few times, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the hazelnuts are browned.

  2. 2. While they are roasting, warm the whole milk and powdered milk in a small saucepan with the honey and salt just until it starts to boil. Remove from heat.

  3. 3. In a clean, dry bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, or in a microwave oven, melt the chocolates together until smooth.

  4. 4. Once the nuts are well-toasted, remove them from oven and use a spatula to place the warm hazelnuts in a clean tea towel, then fold them inside the towel and rub them vigorously to remove any loose skins. They don?t need to be pristine; just try to get as much off as possible.

  5. 5. In a food processor, grind the warm hazelnuts and almonds until they?re as fine as possible.

  6. 6. Add the melted chocolate and continue to process the mixture, stopping to scrape down the sides of the work bowl, as necessary.

  7. 7. Once the mixture is smooth, add the warm milk mixture and process until everything is well-combined.

  8. 8. Transfer the mixture into two jars and refrigerate until ready to use.

  9. Storage: The Chocolate-Hazelnut Paste will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.
