Homemade Nutella

Submitted by: JEN-HAIR-RUN


Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    8 oz. hazelnuts (about 1 3/4 to 2 cups)
    2 tbsp Cocoa powder
    2 tbsp sugar (powdered sugar is best)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Toast nuts for 10-15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or so. Itís important to keep checking them as they will burn easily.

After removing from the oven and allowing them to cool, try to de-shell as many nuts as possible by rubbing them between a paper towel. This gets rid of the extra husk and will make for a smoother end result. Don't worry about getting every bit of skin off, just get as much as you can.

Place the hazelnuts in your food processor and process about 8-15 minutes, scrapping sides often. You'll notice when it starts looking like butter. Itís important to keep processing even after it starts to look buttery, because it takes an extra couple of minutes for the nuts to release their oils.

Stir in Cocoa powder and sugar well. I started with 1 tbsp sugar and added until I thought it tasted right, and ended up using 2 tbsp of sugar.

Store in airtight container or jar.

makes about 16, 1 tbsp servings.
