Make Homemade Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread!

Homemade Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

yield: 20 SERVINGS

prep time: 20 MINUTES

cook time: 15 MINUTES

total time: 35 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil + 1/2 teaspoon additional coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions

1

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Pour the hazelnuts onto a baking sheet pan and bake for about 15 minutes until toasted.

2

Pour the hazelnuts on a kitchen towel and rub the hazelnuts together in the towel to remove the skin as best as you can.

3

To your food processor or blender, add the roasted hazelnuts. Close the lid and process until it forms a smooth paste for a few minutes.

4

Add the sugar, 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt. Process that for about a minute.

5

To a microwave save bowl, add the chocolate chips and 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. Microwave 30 seconds at a time until smooth and melted. Stop microwave to stir each time. Mine took about 2 minutes.

6

Add the melted chocolate into the food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.

7

Pour homemade Nutella into a jar and enjoy! Any leftovers can be stored on the counter or in the fridge in a jar with a lid. The recipe yields 1 1/4 cups.

 

Note that the spread will firm up as it cools, so you can set it out at room temperature before using to soften if it firms up a lot.

Anyone here LOVE Nutella as a treat?

If so, this homemade version of everyone’s beloved Nutella spread is insanely YUMMY and is fairly simple to make using a food processor and whole hazelnuts. This was my first time making homemade nut butter like this and I can tell you it tastes even better than the store-bought jar!

The result is a creamy, dreamy spread that’s not overly sweet, but rich-tasting using whole roasted hazelnuts. Spread some on a crepe for breakfast, use as a dip for strawberries, or make a loaf of homemade Nutella swirl banana bread! YUM.

Tips for making the best homemade Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread:


    • Don’t want to use coconut oil? No worries you can use another neutral oil such as canola oil.
    • My grocery store didn’t have whole hazelnuts, but I was able to easily find some in the bulk foods at my local Sprouts farmers market.
    • Store your hazelnut spread in a jar with a lid on the counter for up to two weeks. You can store in the fridge, but the texture will thicken because of the coconut oil, so just set the jar on the counter to soften.

Grab a spoon and dig into this rich chocolatey hazelnut spread!

This recipe was simple to pull-off and the effort was well worth it for how awesome this tastes. I think it could be a fun recipe idea to make with the kids too.

My family was super impressed with this copycat Nutella and I think yours will be too! Enjoy!

Check out my teammate Jenna’s reaction after making this copycat Nutella hazelnut spread:

“Let me start off by saying I am super picky when it comes to hazelnut spread. Not all hazelnut spreads are created equally, but homemade?! WOW! I never even thought of doing that! We go through so much Nutella, so I knew the kids would appreciate a large batch of fresh, homemade hazelnut spread. The flavor is rich, creamy, and everything Nutella should be!

This process works out beautifully and I love that it thickens up a bit after sitting. I let mine cool overnight and it was great in the morning. After seeing Lina’s picture of it drizzled over the crepe and strawberries has me thinking I need to make crepes ASAP!”

    You can also buy actual hazelnut extract/bakery flavoring! I would imagine that would allow you to use sunflower seeds instead of the hazelnuts, or a cheaper nut like almonds???

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lase

    Now, I can finally eat nutella. Thank you. Never bought from the store because it’s really just sugar and not hazelnuts. Hmm, might even make muffins or a cake with the spread. Yum Yum

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YES! This tastes even better, and you can control the ingredients. It’s fun to make too. Thanks Lase!

  3. GAmommyof4

    This sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing! I had no idea I could make this at home. I know what I’m doing this weekend…

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! That’ll be a fun plan! enjoy 🙂

  4. Mama

    I actually had to make a hazelnut nut paste Yesterday I used my mini kitchen aid food processor that I got on clearance through here 2 years ago. I had nut butter in under 2 minutes! Thank you for always sharing these wonderful ideas!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh wow! That’s neat. Was that for a dessert? Sounds yum! I’m glad to hear a mini one works great too!

    I’m not sure if it would work work with hazelnuts (depends on the fat content, probably?), but I made chocolate peanut butter by making the peanut butter and just adding chocolate chips to the food processor near the end of the process. The heat from the food processor melted the chips and they stayed incorporated in storage. It was maybe 1/2 c chips with 1 lb peanuts. My favorite was with white chocolate chips. Mmmm.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I love that idea! Thanks scarlet!

    • CJ

      Yum! I’m making peanut butter this weekend and I think I’ll do that!!!

  6. Brindha

    Will this work on a 3 cup capacity mini food processor? That looks so good!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya I think it would actually! Thanks great question.

      • Brindha

        Will try it then! Thank you Lina!

  7. Winnie

    Yum!! I was wondering if there was a substitute for the powdered sugar. Would Monk fruit work?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes and powdered erithritol like Swerve. We are testing the keto version now with it.

      • Jessica

        I can’t wait to hear how that works out. My issue wasn’t the powdered sugar as I use Lakanto or swerve. My thought was how can I make this without the chocolate chips?

  8. Sarah Miller

    I wonder if roasting the hazelnuts before would add more hazelnut flavor? I’m going to go get the ingredients I don’t have on hand and give this a try. Thank you!!
