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.

Nutella Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
