Hazelnuts are toasted and then blended with chocolate chips to make a spread that rivals the popular brand. Serve with French bread or it's even good on crackers.

Instructions Checklist

  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spread hazelnuts on the sheet in an even layer. Bake until skins have split and nuts are fragrant, 10 to 15 minutes; rub with a damp towel and blow the skins away. If they cooled off when you removed the skins, go ahead and warm them in the oven again. This will help them to release more oil.

  • Combine the nuts and chocolate chips in the bowl of a food processor. Add the honey and process into a smooth paste, adding more oil if needed. Spoon into a container and store at room temperature.

This was pretty good it's almost as good as the real thing. I did have to add more chocolate chips to get the flavor I was looking for. The kids are really excited about getting chocolate crepes and having it on toast. Read More

Too much hazelnut taste and not enough chocolate taste. Plus I tried adding more oil and it just didn't get a good creamy texture. Read More

I used sugar free chocolate chips and about 1 5 times as much as the recipe called for. It's SO much healthier than Nutella! Read More

This recipe was ok the flavour wasn't great and it is far more cost effective to buy hazelnut spread. Read More
