Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Spread Recipe

I don’t know about you – but I’m in love with Nutella. I can eat it by the spoonful, or toss it on my gluten free bread. It’s sweet, it’s yummy and well it’s just great. The price isn’t always the best, but it sure is worth it isn’t it?

But I’m working on a goal lately – making things at home from scratch. I like knowing what exactly is in my food and knowing for sure 100% it’s gluten free. If I make it at home it should be right? All gluten free ingredients after all! I was shocked at how easy it was to make my own chocolate hazelnut spread -it only took a few minutes and – wow – is it good! The texture is a bit different than the stuff at the store but a little extra time in the blender I’m sure it’d be perfect!

The hardest part of this recipe – actually finding Hazelnuts! I checked Meijer, Kroger and all of my regular haunts – nothing. So I went to my “last chance stop” – my bulk food store. I looked and still didn’t find Hazelnuts, so I actually asked. Apparently Hazelnuts are also called Filberts! You can get them blanched or with skin on – either work, but skin on is cheaper.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Hazelnuts
  • 12 oz chopped Milk Chocolate – You can use chocolate chips but that will give it a more gritty texture.
  • 2-4 tbsp Canola oil
  • 5 tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tbs Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • pinch Salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a small glass dish (pie dish etc) put your hazelnuts and roast them 10 minutes. Allow them to cool completely.
  2. Once your hazelnuts are cooled completely rub them between your hands removing as much of the skin as possible. There will be some that wont come off – that’s ok!
  3. In your blender layer your chocolate, sugar, oil, 2 tbsp cocoa, vanilla and salt. Add your roasted hazelnuts on top.
  4. Start on low and increase your speed until it is completely blended. Add additional 2 tbsp of oil if your mixture is too thick!
  5. If you’re using a Blendtec Blender use your twister jar (regular jars are fine too). Start on 1 for 15 seconds then increase to 9 until completely smooth.

Put in a jar or plastic container and store in your fridge up to 6 weeks – but let’s be serious, you’ll eat it all before then!
