This homemade Nutella is an excellent and delightful way to enjoy a sweet treat! You will love the creamy and chocolaty spread bursting with flavor. The secret to making this heavenly spread lies in grinding the hazelnuts as finely as possible before adding all the ingredients. The combination of the smooth chocolate mixture combined with the finely ground hazelnuts provides an amazing texture and amazing flavor.
Put the hazelnuts in a food processor and blend until the mixture is as fine as possible.
Add in the honey, oil, and salt and continue to blend until the paste resembles a marzipan-like texture, which should be a bit gritty.
Put the chocolate, cream, sugar and cocoa powder into a medium heat-proof bowl and melt it in the microwave or in a saucepan filled with simmering water.
Take half of the chocolate mixture and blend it with the hazelnuts.
Put the other half of the chocolate mixture in the food processor and process for 1 minute until it is creamy and well blended.
Pour the mixture into a jar and put it in the fridge. This will help the spread set.
