Standard Nutella is cloyingly sweet and rather synthetic tasting. This is an adult version. Jammed with hazelnuts, chocolatey smooth, lightly bitter sweet and a hint of salt — just beautiful! 😍


20g serving




    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
    2. Place the hazelnuts in a dry roasting tray and roast for 15 minutes until golden and fragrant
    3. Transfer the hazelnuts to a clean tea towel. Fold the tea towel over, and rub the hazelnuts between two sides of the tea towel till the skins fall off. You may need to do this in batches.
    4. Place the skinless hazelnuts into a high powered blender, and blitz until the hazelnuts turn into butter.
    5. Add the rest of the ingredients, blend and adjust cacao or sweetener to your taste.
    6. Transfer to a jar and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks (or longer, but I've never know it to stick around for longer than that!)
