Learn to make the popular chocolate hazelnut spread from scratch for a healthier, all-natural version.
Recipe Type: Condiment
Serves: 250 grams
  • 70g Hazelnuts – Roasted & blanched
  • 180g Sweetened Condensed Milk (I only use 100g)
  • 85g Dark chocolate – roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoon Honey
  1. Toast the hazelnuts in the oven at 350F for 3-4minutes. Or can dry roast on pan.
  2. Add the cooled, toasted hazelnuts to the processor bowl, pulse for 2-3 minutes and you will have very finely ground hazelnuts. Scrape down the sides and the blade and process until there are no lumps remaining. Keep processing until it become a thick paste. You can try processing until it become creamy liquid (which didn’t happen for me).
  3. Using stovetop double boiler, melt chocolate, condensed milk, and honey in a bowl. Or you can melt using microwave for 20sec pulse.
  4. Add the warm chocolate mix to the food processor bowl and mix well.
