Introduction: Homemade Nutella
This chocolate and hazelnut spread needs no introduction.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
- 7 oz of hazelnuts
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 9 oz of dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup of milk
- food processor
- mixing bowl
- double boiler
Step 2: Roast Hazelnuts
On a medium flame, dry roast your hazelnuts for about 10-15 minutes. The nuts should smell toasty, not burnt.
Once done, set aside and let cool completely.
Step 3: Chop!
Place hazelnuts in food processor and pulse away. This step takes some time, but you'll be done once the hazelnuts have the texture of peanut butter.
Step 4: Melt Chocolate
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth and just melted. You can add a pinch of salt here if you wish. Remove from heat, and pour into a mixing bowl.
Add sweetened condensed milk and mix thoroughly. Mmm, just look at those sweet tasty swirls.
Step 5: Bring It All Together
Now pour your hazelnut butter into your chocolate mixture, and combine. You will have a very thick dough-like chocolate mixture. Add tiny pours of warm milk until you reach your desired consistency.
Step 6: Done!
Take your Nutella through another round in the food processor if you wish, just to smooth things up a bit. Pour into your jar (or right into your mouth), and enjoy!
Pairs well with just about everything.
