Homemade Nutella





Introduction: Homemade Nutella

This chocolate and hazelnut spread needs no introduction.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

To make about 3 small jars, you will need:
  • 7 oz of hazelnuts
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 9 oz of dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup of milk
Other materials:
  • food processor
  • pan
  • mixing bowl
  • spatula
  • double boiler
  • cans

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.

a possible alternative?

You can make your own sweetened condensed milk that is lactose free. Using powdered non dairy milk or milk substitute. I posted it above, sorry.

To make your own sweetened condensed milk out of Almond Milk. https://www.instructables.com/id/Condensed-Almond-Milk/

You can make your own sweetened condensed milk. One recipe I found uses powdered non dairy milk. https://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Condensed-Milk/

In our local grocery store's bulk section, we have a grinder filled with organic hazelnuts and ss chocolate chips. Yes, fresh ground better-than-Nutella! I don't know the ratio, and due to the lack of added fats, you need to compensate when following a recipe that calls for Nutella. It's well worth the effort. I'll see if I can get that ratio and update this.

yum!!!! thanks for sharing
