Recipe type: Spread
  • 200g hazelnuts
  • 500 ml water
  • 150g brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 250g semi-sweet or dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C. Place the hazelnuts on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Roast the hazelnuts for 10 minutes, until they are golden brown. Let the hazelnuts cool for a bit. Once they are cool enough to handle, place the hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel and pull the towel into a bundle. Rub the hazelnuts against each other and the skins will come off. There may be a few stubborn hazelnut skins, but that's okay, most of them will come off easily.
  2. Place the hazelnuts in a large pot, fill it up with 500 ml of water, and add the brown sugar and salt. Cook the nuts for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour the hazelnut mixture in a food processor or high performance blender and blend for about 10 minutes until the mixture has thickened and is smooth.
  4. Meanwhile, melt your chocolate over a double boiler.
  5. Once your hazelnut mixture is done, transfer it in a large bowl. Add the melted chocolate, cacao powder and vanilla extract and stir until everything is combined. Pour your homemade Nutella into mason jars and enjoy!
Store your homemade whipped Nutella in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
