Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

January 25, 2012

This chocolate hazelnut spread is so delicious it’s hard to quit eating.

I was reminded of this delicious spread when my friend, Mika texted me yesterday requesting an alternative to peanut butter for her son, Kai, who refuses to put anything else on his toast! I gave them a blender for Christmas, and suggested they make their own flavored nut butters.

Even though this spread contains a lot of natural sugar, I decided it would be a great fun start to get Kai excited about making something other than peanut butter. He really enjoys experimenting in the kitchen with smoothies, so this worked.

This chocolate hazelnut spread is really simple, and you don’t have to roast or skin the hazelnuts. I just throw them in raw and whole. Tweak the cacao powder, maple syrup, and coconut oil to taste. This butter will keep in the fridge for up to a week. But, it never lasts that long.
