Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

    Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
    Melissa Guerra

    Making your own Nutella-like chocolate hazelnut spread is a pretty easy task. The most difficult part will be finding fresh hazelnuts. Check your local natural grocery store, as they may have them in their bulk section. If hazelnuts are not available, you can always substitute filberts, but make sure that they are blanched, raw, and unsalted.

    6
    ounces
    raw hazelnuts
    1/4
    cup
    vegetable oil
    11
    ounces
    package milk chocolate chips
    1/4
    cup
    cocoa powder
    1/2
    cup
    powdered sugar
    1
    teaspoon
    vanilla extract
    Directions
    Step 1
    Heat your oven to 350°F. Place the raw hazelnuts in a baking pan, making sure that there is enough room in the pan so that the hazelnuts are in a single layer. Place the pan in the oven to toast the hazelnuts, checking and stirring every 2 minutes. The hazelnuts should be sufficiently toasted with an 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the hazelnuts from the oven, and allow to cool completely.
    Step 2
    Place the hazelnuts in a food processor, and process for about 10 seconds, until the hazelnuts are finely ground. Add the vegetable oil through the feed tube, and process for another 10 seconds until the mixture becomes smooth.
    Step 3
    Stop the food processor, and open the container. Add the chocolate chips, cocoa, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Close the container again, and process until the mixture is very smooth, about 2 minutes.
    Step 4
    The chocolate hazelnut spread is ready to eat or use immediately. Store in the refrigerator.
