You guys, we all saw this coming. The absolute next thing I had to try out was making my own Nutella. I was convinced that it absolutely could not be as good as the real deal and thought all of the pinterest hype could not be worth making it. I'll admit, I was totally out to prove them wrong. But junk in a jar it tasted soooo good. Definitely a little bit more natural tasting, but so wholesome and delicious. I do have to say though, peeling hazlenuts is not for the faint of heart, if you can find some that are already peeled I'd snatch those things up with gusto for this recipe. So here's the dealio, I tried three recipes, one with low sugar, one regular recipe and one vegan recipe. This recipe was by far my favorite. Here's how you can make your own!
- 1 cup hazelnuts
- 12 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
- 2 tablespoons mild vegetable oil, such as canola
- 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
