This is so quick and easy, you will wonder why you have never made your own 'Nutella' before!

Not only is this Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread really easy to make, but it is healthier than commercial Nutella and tastes so much better. The only difficulty is leaving it alone..... You may just find yourself, spoon in hand, dipping again and again until the jar is empty....



Recipe

  • How to make a spread. Easy Home Made More Nut, Less Sugar (Healthier Than Nutella Then....) Chocolate Hazelnut Spread - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you need to roast your raw blanched hazelnuts (if they are not already roasted) : preheat the oven to 200 C/400 F/Gas 6. Spread the raw hazelnuts on a baking tray and place in the oven for about 10 minutes until golden, giving the nuts a shake on the tray a couple of times during roasting to prevent burning.
