Home-made Nutella/ Hazelnut Spread
½ Cup Hazelnut
3 tbpsn Dark Chocolate Chips
2-3 tbspn Maple syrup
1 tspn Vanila extract
Pinch of salt
First step is to de-skin the Hazelnuts.
For that place the Hazelnuts in one layer in a baking sheet .
Transfer the tray to a 275 Degrees preheated oven to 15 -25 minutes, until the skin start to crack.
While the nuts are still hot, place the nuts on a kitchen towel, wrap and rub vigorously b/w hands until you are tired and Viola the nuts are de-skinned.
Blend the hazelnuts until it forms a paste. Add the remaining ingredients , continue blending until smooth paste is formed.[You can add more maple syrup or coconut Oil or even milk to achieve the desired consistency. If adding milk, try to finish off the spread in 4-5 days as shelf life may not be high]
