Homemade Nutella (hazelnut chocolate spread)
2 cups hazelnuts
1 cup dark chocolate, melted
2 TBS cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
1 TBS honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBS coconut oil
Preheat oven to 400F
Spread hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast in oven for about 10 minutes. Watch carefully to make sure nuts don't burn.
Remove the roasted hazelnuts and place them in a dishtowel and rub and shake to remove the skin. You shouldn't have to work too hard at this. It should for the most part come off easily. If all of the skin doesn't come off that is ok.
Place the peeled, roasted hazelnuts in a blender and mix until it becomes smooth as butter.
Add in the coconut oil, sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder and pinch of salt.
Blend it all together until smooth.
Melt the dark chocolate and add to the blender along with the honey.
Blend until smooth.
And VOILA you have homemade hazelnut chocolate spread.
