Peanut Butter and Peppers

Here's what to do when your supermarket is out of Nutella. We're not saying it's as good as the original recipe, but it's pretty darn close. 

Ingredients

  • 2  Cups  hazelnuts, roasted and peeled
  • 2  Tablespoons  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2  Tablespoon  vanilla extract
  • 4  Tablespoons  powdered sugar
  • Pinch of  salt
  • 2  Tablespoons  coconut oil
  • 1  Tablespoon  mini chocolate chips

Directions

In a food processor, add the hazelnuts and process until a peanut butter consistency forms. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, powdered sugar, salt, and coconut oil. Process until smooth. Add chocolate chips last and process until the chocolate has broken down and is melted.

Place in a jar and seal with a top.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
