Easy Homemade Nutella
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 jar
  • 400g hazlenuts
  • 2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2-3 tbsp icing powder
  • salt and vanilla, to taste
  1. First, roast your hazlenuts for 10 minutes in a medium hot oven, about 170c.
  2. While they're still warm, tip them into your blender or mixer and start to process. Continue for 10 - 15 minutes, scraping down the sides every couple of minutes.
  3. EVENTUALLY - and it won't seem like it will ever happen, but then it will - the nut mixture will turn into a butter. HOORAY!
  4. With the mixer running, tip in 2 tbsp each of icing sugar and cocoa powder, then stop the mixer and taste the nutella. Add a little more sugar or cocoa depending on your preference, and also add salt and vanilla to taste.
  5. Decant the nutella into a just cleaned jar, and store at room temperature for 2 - 3 weeks. Who are we kidding, there's no way it will last that long!
