Honey Hazelnut Spread (The Anti-Nutella)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

I know people wax poetic over Nutella (I don't mind it myself) but, for me, this extraordinarily simple spread (Confit de miel et noisettes) on a piece of toast is heaven. It will keep indefinitely in an air-tight jar in the fridge but, trust me, it won't last that long.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and toast about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Remove nuts from oven and place in a tea towel.
  4. Rub the hazelnuts in the towel to remove their skins.
  5. Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and puree.
  6. When the puree is smooth and almost oily, add the honey and pulse until thoroughly combined.

This is a very sweet, rich spread that goes great with warm scones. YUM! I loved the honey hazelnut combination, it was like eating marzipan paste. lol
I decreased the honey by a few tbs and still found it quite dominant, so next time I might try halving it. My hand held blender struggled with making this super smooth, but I liked the rough texture a lot.
Thanks so much for sharing this keeper, Kate! Ill surely make it again.
