Chocolate Hazelnut Spread



from this wonderful blog

Love this. Love it by itself. Love it on bread. Love it on ice cream. Love it on anything, anytime.

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tb vanilla extract
  • 5 tbs agave
  • 1 ts oil (hazelnut oil, canola oil, olive oil)
  • a pinch of salt

  1. Roast the hazelnuts at 350° for 8-10 minutes until they darken a bit and smell fragrant
  2. Transfer the hazelnuts to a towel and rub off the skins if you can (I didn't have a lot of luck with this)
  3. In a food processor, grind the hazelnuts to a smooth butter, about 5 minutes, scraping the sides as needed
  4. Add the cocoa, agave, vanilla, oil and salt and process until well blended, about a minute
  5. Store in a glass mason jar in the refrigerator
