Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread (Better than Nutella!)

2 cups raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp vegetable oil (or enough to make it spreadable)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Homemade Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread (Better than Nutella!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Place hazelnuts in a single layer on a shallow baking pan. Toast until the skins are almost black and the meat is dark brown, about 15 minutes. Stir the nuts halfway through baking to ensure an even color.

  2. Since the skin is bitter, you?ll want to discard them. Wrap the cooled hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel or paper towel, and rub until most of the skins have come off. Don?t fret if you can?t get off all the skins.

  3. Process nuts in a food processor, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally, until they have liquefied, about 5 minutes. First, you will get coarsely chopped nuts, then a fine meal. After a little while, the nuts will form a ball around the blade, and it will seem like you only have a solid mass. Keep processing. The heat and friction will extract the natural oils, and you will get hazelnut butter!

  4. When the nuts are liquified, add in the sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Slowly drizzle in enough oil to make a spreadable consistency. Since the mixture is warm, it will be more fluid now than at room temperature.

  5. Transfer the spread to an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator for 1-2 months. For best results, stir the chocolate-hazelnut spread before using.
