This is going to be my first post about food, which is a huge part of my life. I was raised in a family that appreciate food, especially homemade stuff, my Mom is the best cook i have ever met (at least in my opinion) and to this day I still go back to her to get my recipes.
However, I am trying to make everything we eat at our house homemade….i mean EVERYTHING…..so i started with something that is special to my heart Nutella ……i googled allot and even searched Pinterest…with a little bit of common sense I made my wonderful homemade Nutella….
Of course my number one tester got to have a try….and he LOVED it after all it was made for him 😛
Now to be honest…it’s not as smooth as the store bought one, but you know EXACTLY what the ingredients are, so you won’t be eating anything harmful….but be careful it is Addictive 🙂
Now let’s get to business…..here is what you will need:
250 grams of Hazelnuts
250 grams of Chocolate ( i used dark chocolate b/c it was available)
2 Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
First, roast you hazelnuts in the oven for 15 minutes at 180 Celsius.
Then, using a clean kitchen towel rub the hazelnuts to get as much skin as you can from them…..after that you will be using a food processor to blend them, it might take a while to get a nice smooth texture. Add te sugar, cocoa powder and oil, blend again.
Now lets get to the best part, melt the chocolate using a double boiler, add the chocolate to the hazelnut mixture and blend….
Taste….add more sugar if you want but for us it worked well this way…
See it was really easy……..hope you try it… believe me it’s worth trying
