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
