Homemade Nutella is so simple to make! It’s rich, full of chocolate flavor and can actually be considered healthy when made at home with real, wholesome ingredients. This version actually contains tons of hazelnut flavor and absolutely no refined sugars. Make it in under 20 minutes!
If you chocolate mixture starts to seize up, or becomes very dry looking, add in a couple of tablespoons of warm water with the food processor running. It should be completely smooth before adding in the melted chocolate.
If your hazelnuts do not have a the skin on them, you can still toast them to improve the flavor!
We recommend storing this in the refrigerator. There are no preservatives in this, and a very conservative amount of sugar so unlike store-bought Nutella, it’s best to store this in the refrigerator and use up within 7-10 days. You can bring it to room temperature if you’d like to before using.
