Homemade Nutella – you won’t believe how easy it is to make your own chocolate hazelnut spread at home! It is sweet and creamy and so delicious!
A generous layer of homemade chocolate hazelnut spread on a warm bagel. Doesn’t that sound like a good breakfast? It sure does to me. I’ve wanted to make Homemade Nutella since I made the peanut butter. Because once you try making your own nut butter, it’s hard to stop! It is so easy! No more run-outs in the middle of the night! Oh wait, that’s probably just me..
I finally got a huge bag of hazelnuts and it was time to make some Nutella. Not sure who was more excited, me or our kiddos!
Let me just say, it’s hard to have a bag of nuts in our house and not snack on it. I usually skip them in recipes like brownies or ice cream and leave them for snacking. Or use as garnish on decadent desserts.
As with the peanut butter, you need to roast the nuts before turning them into a butter. It helps with de-skinning and releases oils from the nuts. Simply place the hazelnuts on a parchment paper or silicone mat lined baking sheet and pop them in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. To easily get rid of the skin, place the roasted nuts on a clean kitchen towel and rub the nuts until the skin comes off. It’s really easy.
