Homemade Nutella



Nutella is the stuff dreams are made of.  Everyone loves it, and we all can find a million things to do with it.  So to start I figured why not make my own instead of buying it.  I still had tons of hazelnuts left, even after making this pie.  I researched a bunch of different recipes.  There are so many out there.  It was hard to decide what to do.  There seemed to be 2 directions - honey as the sweetener or powdered sugar.  Personally, I don't eat Nutella for the health benefits - so I picked powdered sugar!  Seemed like it would be closest to the original that way. 

It is a little richer than store bought.  I roasted the hazelnuts, and they really come through.  It is still the sweet delicious Nutella I love, just more intense.  It was pretty darn easy too.  Just let the food processor work for a few minutes, melt some chocolate, and you are about done.  And there are some yummy things you can do with it too!  Or you can just enjoy it for breakfast on an English Muffin, one of my favorites!  Just wait for the follow up to this post :)  If that isn't a teaser, I don't know what is!

Homemade Nutella
Recipe from Home Cooking Adventure
Printable Recipe

1 cup hazelnuts, roasted
4 tbsp powdered sugar
200 g milk chocolate
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Process nuts in a food processor for about 5 minutes until you get a smooth liquid butter texture. 
 
Meanwhile melt chocolate over a bain-marie until smooth. Add the melted chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder, oil and vanilla extract to hazelnuts and process until smooth. 
Transfer the spread into a small sauce pan and cook at over low for 5 minutes then place finished hazelnut chocolate spread to an airtight container, let cool then refrigerate. Stir before serving.

Homemade Nutella.....heaven! This looks like a great thing to tackle, but I'm afraid I would eat the whole batch. ;)

I love making my own nutella...I only wish I could get it as creamy as the storebought kind! Yours looks great.

Nutella is relatively new to me. I bought my first jar for a challenge back in January. I do like it but eat it sparingly. Your homemade versions looks very rich and delicious!

I would slather that on just about anything!

Yup, that sounds fantastic. I still have my first container of Nutella in the cupboard though. I love hazelnuts but at the end of the day, I can't get past the chocolate thing.

Homemade Nutella! Awesome!! And I bet you can flavor it anyway you want, not that Nutella is not awesome just the way it is!

Homemade nutella is one of those things I keep meaning to make. But, then again, I would probably eat the whole lot with a spoon. Not a good look!

Congrats on making the Top 9 Erin, and on a Nutella post, no less. Fabulous homemade nutella! I'm bookmarking this, as I've never tried making it myself.

 
At July 21, 2011 at 9:42 AM , Blogger Julia said...

ok, I will definitely make this myself. Nutella is my absolute obsession. this recipe sounds easy and you actually seem to end up with something close to nutella, means it has nuts, chocolate and sugar (honey...wtf??) in it. I'm already a fan!

 
At July 21, 2011 at 10:18 AM , Blogger Jennifer said...

Yum is all I can say. I won't buy it as I'll eat the whole jar by myself in days, I'm sure. The one time I tasted it - heavenly!

I am afraid to make this, because I might eat the whole thing with a spoon - but I think I'll make it anyways! :) Thanks for sharing, Erin...
