Hazelnut chocolate spread

It literally took us under 30 minutes to make.

Hazelnut chocolate spread
This recipe was created on world Nutella day. The initial inspiration was actually my childhood memory. When I was a child I hated most of the veggies (which is a total opposite of today), so my parents tricked me a bit. My mum cooked a delicious seasonal vegetable soup, and if I ate the whole plate, I got a pancake with my favourite spread, which was Nutella. It totally worked and today I love both. Thanks mum. So for the world Nutella day we actually made hazelnut - chocolate spread ourselves. It literally took us less than 30 minutes, which is less than commuting to the supermarket and back home. So yes, totally worth it.

    Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F. Bake the hazelnuts 8 - 10 minutes in a baking tray, lined with parchment paper.

  • Remove the skin from the hazelnuts and blend into a paste.

    Tip
    Blend for a few minutes until the paste is silky and oily.
  • Sit the heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (a bain marie) and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.

  • Mix the chocolate into the paste, add the icing sugar, pinch of salt, hazelnut oil and unsweetened cacao. Blitz and let cool in a jar.
