This instantly shot straight to the top of my Recipes to Test list when I saw several versions of it popping up on sites like Foodgawker. My first attempt turned out a little grainy (in future more thorough blending is required), but taste-wise it was absolutely spot-on.
Blend then spread as desired, or be piggy like me and eat it with a spoon :)
Homemade Nutella (Hazelnut Chocolate Spread)
150g hazelnuts- Roast at 200º C for 10-15 mins until very fragrant, then rub vigorously with a cloth towel to remove as much of the skins as possible. Blitz in a small spice mill/blade grinder/blender until it forms a very smooth peanut butter-like paste.
Add and continue blending until smooth:
100g milk chocolate, melted and cooled
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
A few drops of vegetable oil
Store in a jar at room temperature. Slather on everything!
