Today, just time for Valentine’s Day we made our own Nutella.
It only contains 3 ingredients,
2 cups toasted Hazelnuts
1/2 cup good Quality Chocolate
2 tbsp Peanut Oil
- Toast the nuts until fragrant, then put them in blender while still hot. It is recommended to have a Vitamix or equivalent (if there really is one). Blend for about 30 seconds
- Add the chocolate and peanut oil and blend until smooth. Use the damper to push the mixture towards the blade. You will want the ingredients blended until very smooth.
You can make this in a food Processor or a VitaMix Blender. If you are using the VitaMix it is best to use the Dry Ingredient Container, it pushes the ingredients up and away from the blade, rather than pull them under the blade like the Wet Ingredient Container, the result is a smoother nut butter.
This recipe is super easy and simple, it makes a great snack and best of all, you know what what you are eating!!
Till next time, Donna xoxo
