Healthier Homemade Nutella for #Choctoberfest

By: The Food Hunter

If you love chocolate hazelnut spreads, but don't love all the calories and sugar associated with the store bought brands, you can always make your own. It takes a handful of ingredients and less than an hour to make this healthier version.

Without further ado I bring you today's Choctoberfest recipe sponsored by Imperial Sugar & featuring Rodelle baking Cocoa. Don't forget to scroll to the bottom for lots more recipes and a giveaway! 


Healthier Homemade Nutella 

2 cups raw hazelnuts (240g)
1 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup Rodelle cocoa powder
2 tbsp Imperial sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup whole milk

Roast hazelnuts for 5-7 minutes at 400 F. Remove from oven and rub them in a paper towel to get the skins off.

Blend the nuts in a food processor until they’ve turned to butter. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until it’s smooth and creamy, this could take a few minutes.  When done put in a glass jar to keep fresh.

  5. Oooh, I'll bet roasting the hazelnuts first makes the flavor SO GOOD! I hit Costco today and had to force myself past the two giant jars of Nutella...even knowing how horrible that stuff is, I still wanted to put it in my cart! LOL!

  8. I have to say I don't like Nutella that much because it's super sweet. On the other hand making my own would give me the freedom to reduce the amount of sugar but still enjoy this wonderful nutty and creamy treat.
