Man O' Man. I have had the hardest times whipping up delicious recipes lately. I guess that is bound to happen every now and then. Even writers get a block. Well after many failed recipes this weekend I finally created something yummy! Just in time for National Nutella Day, I made my very own homemade Nutella!
I have been wanting Jeff, Hubs, to try Nutella forever now. So I figured why can't I make my own. I love making things homemade because you can control what goes in to them. And, I must say I am enjoying my Nutella! It is a healthier option than the store bought kind. See \/ \/ \/
I am going to make up some delicious treats for Valentines Day with this Nutella spread. I suppose you always could just give away the jar as a lovely present. I'm sure it would be enjoyed just as much!
Remember 9 days to V-Day! xoxo
- 1 cup skinless nuts: Hazelnuts, almonds, or Marcona almonds
- 1/2 cup almond milk unsweetened
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 2 squares of dark chocolate Trader Joes Pound Plus
- 2 Tbsp. Organic Coconut sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- You may add 1 tbsp. or more of coconut oil to make it even smoother. I left this out. I don't mind my Nutella thick. :)
In a saucepan melt chocolate squares with 1/4 cup of the milk. Next, Grind nuts in food processor until you have created a butter. Add the remainder of the ingredients to the processor including your melted chocolate and the other 1/4 cup milk. Blend Blend Blend until smooth. Enjoy! Yum, Yum!
