Homemade Nutella -- Better Than the Real Thing!

Recipe by Um Safia
READY IN: 12mins
YIELD: 2 cups


  • 1 12
    cups chopped hazelnuts
  • 12
    cup dark chocolate chips or 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 -2
    tablespoon canola oil (I use sunflower oil)


  • Place the hazelnuts in a dry skillet and toast over medium heat 2 to 4 minutes or until just starting to brown.
  • Place the hazelnuts and the chocolate chips in the work bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process for 3 to 5 minutes until the mixture starts to become smooth.
  • Drizzle in one tablespoon of oil while continuing to process. If necessary, add another tablespoon of oil until the mixture becomes smooth and spreadable.
  • Store in the fridge in a clean jar or lidded container for upto 2 weeks. You will probably need to mix the spread before each use as the oil can separate.
