Homemade Nutella

Singlemade: Homemade Nutella

On the 5th of February it’s World Nutella Day and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by making my own Nutella. After several failed attempts I managed to make a hazelnut paste that’s not only healthier but also even better than Nutella. We haven’t bought any ever since! :-p

On Pinterest several foodbloggers claim you need only 3 ingredients to make Nutella. I’ve tried ‘em all and they’re all crud! A couple of ‘em claim you can make your own hazelnut butter in 10 minutes. Again, crud! In the end I managed to make my own butter but it took me over half an hour, using a decent food processor.

In other words, making your own Nutella from scratch isn’t single-proof by a mile. So went to the bio-shop and bought myself a jar of hazelnut butter. Thanks to this little invention it doesn’t take the better part of an hour to make Nutella, it hardly takes more than 5 minutes! So a trip to the bio-shop was well worth it. And did I mention that this version is not only healthier, it’s also even better than the original? In short: get you some hazelnut butter!

Instructions
  1. Put a little bowl on a kitchen scale and weigh all ingredients into the bowl. Stir vigorously into a smooth paste. Done!
  2. The paste will keep for two weeks in the fridge, but the odds are slim it’ll survive that long! :-p
Recipe Notes

* Plant-based cream will keep longer than dairy-cream and is sweeter. If you use dairy cream then the paste will turn quicker and you’ll probably have to sweeten it a bit more.

Tip: can’t find hazelnut butter? Cashew or almond butter are just as delicious! Be careful when you use sesame butter (tahini) because of its strong taste.
