- 2 cups raw hazelnuts
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (about 6 ounces)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (adjust to taste)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
1. Roasting the Hazelnuts:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Spread the raw hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Roast the hazelnuts in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the skins start to crack and turn slightly brown. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-roasting.
- Once roasted, remove the hazelnuts from the oven and let them cool slightly. Then, rub them with a clean kitchen towel to remove the skins as much as possible. Don’t worry if some skin remains; it adds a pleasant flavor.
2. Making Hazelnut Paste:
- Place the roasted and partially skinned hazelnuts in a food processor or high-speed blender.
- Blend the hazelnuts until they turn into a smooth, creamy paste. This may take a few minutes, and you might need to scrape down the sides of the container occasionally.
3. Preparing the Chocolate Mixture:
- In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate until smooth and creamy. Be careful not to overheat.
- Add the melted chocolate, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and salt to the hazelnut paste in the food processor.
- Blend everything together until the mixture is silky-smooth and well combined. Taste and adjust the sweetness or saltiness as needed.
4. Storing the Hazelnut Chocolate Spread:
- Transfer the homemade hazelnut chocolate spread to an airtight container.
- Store it in the refrigerator for a thicker consistency or at room temperature for a softer, spreadable texture.
- Enjoy your homemade Hazelnut Chocolate Spread on toast, pancakes, waffles, or as a dip for fruits and cookies. Be prepared to be amazed by its rich, nutty, and chocolaty goodness!
Alice’s magical Hazelnut Chocolate Spread is a testament to the wonderful world of homemade delights. This spread is sure to delight your taste buds and bring a touch of Alice’s enchantment to your kitchen.
