A silky, creamy homemade Nutella! It tastes just like the real thing, with a slightly stronger hazelnut flavour and the pure taste of preservative free homemade goodness. This really will knock your socks off. A must try at least once in your life!
1. If you can't find peeled hazelnuts, just use hazelnuts with the skin on. Roast them, then place in a bowl and then put another bowl on top. Shake vigorously to loosen the skin then separate the nuts from the skin. Don't worry if there is some skin, it will whizz up smooth. You just want to remove most of the skin because it can be a bit bitter.
2. Dutch processed cocoa powder is darker and has a more intense flavour than normal cocoa powder. You can use a dark cocoa powder (which is darker than normal cocoa but slightly lighter than Dutch processed) but the Nutella won't be quite the same colour and the chocolate flavour is a slightly less (not that much, it affects colour more than taste).
3. It takes around 2 - 3 minutes in my Vitamix which is a high performance blender, so it may take longer in other blenders.
4. Nutrition per serving, assuming 20 servings (about 1 tbsp per serving).
