I made this and I was jumping for joy. It tastes EXACTLY like Nutella! But with the added satisfaction that you made it! This would be great as a gift, to flaunt your creativity as a domestic goddess, knowing that everyone loves Nutella. (Can you tell I’m quite excited by this?!)
Seriously people, share the love. Make the Nutella.
200g milk chocolate
110g icing sugar
50g good quality cocoa powder (like Green & Black’s)
Heat the oven to 180C and place the hazelnuts on a baking tray. Roast for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly browned. Whilst you’re doing your roasting, melt the chocolate, either in a bain-marie or in the microwave – just don’t burn it! Put the browned hazelnuts in a food processor and whizz until it resembles breadcrumbs. Throw in the melted chocolate, icing sugar and cocoa powder, and 2 Tbsp. rapeseed oil. Whizz. Keep adding 1 Tbsp. rapeseed oil at a time until it’s smooth.
Place in a sterilised jar and in the fridge, and serve in the morning on brioche – oh so French.
