So I just got back from having a visit with my sister!  Before I left she made me this fabulous gift!  A jar of homemade Nutella just for me!

Well, this is possibly the most amazing thing on the planet!  It is not as sweet as the store bought and it just tastes so incredible… I would say it’s like grown up Nutella!  I am one spoiled sister!!

So far I’ve eaten it on well, ..  um … a spoon… and a banana!  It would be amazing on toast or ice cream or.. anything!  My daughter told me it tastes like a brownie on a spoon!

Give it a try yourself!

  1. Toast the hazelnuts at 375 for 10-15 minutes until fragrant & the skins split
  2. Place the nuts on a tea towel and rub them to get as many of the skins off as possible
  3. Transfer to a food processor (while warm) and puree into a paste (like thick peanut butter)
  4. While the nuts puree, warm the milk, powdered milk, honey and salt over medium heat until it JUST starts to boil
  5. Melt the chocolate in double boiler or in the microwave (on lower power) until smooth
  6. With the food processor running, slowly add the melted chocolate to the ground nuts (scrape the sides if required)
  7. Add the warm milk & honey to the processor and puree until smooth
  8. Pour the mixture into a jar/container (it will thicken upon cooling)
  9. Allow the mixture to cool and store in the fridge

  1. This looks great, I am excited to try it, but have one question. Do you have any idea on how long the jar will keep in the fridge before going bad? Just curious.

  2. I buy nutella at the store all the time and it is exspensive .I’m glad you shared this recipe, and it is also good in coffee . I will share this with my family thank you !

  3. I have a question. Why have you disabled the ability for us to print this or copy and paste it. Do you expect us to copy it down by hand? Most of us don’t have time for that……..

    1. I’m not sure why the “print” wasn’t showing up on this recipe… I have edited the post and it should work now. :)

  4. I have made this before, I am allergic to hazelnuts and diary so I use almonds and almond milk and it is equally as good.

  5. Thank you for this! I like Nutella but it’s a tad too sweet for me – I love I can adjust it however I want with this recipe!

  11. I am definitely going to check this out…..we got hooked on Nutella when we lived in Germany for many years…and the idea of being able to control the recipe and add what we like, and tone down what we don’t care for…is awesome… ( the kids like more cocoa, I like more hazelnuts…go figure!)

  12. Thank you for sharing, have been looking for this home-made nutella and The Lucky Ladybug sent me to your page .. yea! I will definitely try this out, my son loves NUTELLA!
