Homemade Nutella.

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.


You’ll need:

150g hazelnuts

200g milk chocolate

110g icing sugar

50g good quality cocoa powder (like Green & Black’s)

Rapeseed oil

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.
