Nutella Homemade ? Nope I'm Not Kidding You Recipe!

I am a Nutella fan big time! I couldn't believe it when my good friend's mom Stacy said she had a recipe for it! I eat this stuff by the spoonfuls since I was a little kid. Actually I am quite addicted. I have made several recipes using the jar one, now I can make it homemade anytime just by having some of these ingredients on hand. The hard part is getting the texture really smooth if you don't have a high powered food processor in which I do in fact, this will not come as smooth without one.
A few ingredients and your on your way!

First I toast 2 cups of whole Hazelnuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, if you can't find them whole use chopped as I did this time. Toast at least until they start to turn brown.
Next  using a high powered Blender or food processor add cooled nuts to make a paste, use a silicone spatula to keep scraping down the sides to make sure there are not lumps remaining.
Add 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil to the nuts,  1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 cup of confectionery sugar (powdered sugar form) and 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract (we used Mexican vanilla) add a pinch of sea salt and continue to puree until smooth and silky looking.

Pour this into containers with lids. We try and eat this or use it up with desserts although you can store this in the refrigerator for up to 1 week bringing to room temperature before eating. This is a delicious spread!

Thank you so much for reading and a special thanks to my friend John's mom Stacy! I love it!

I have never tried Nutella but it must be special. My spouse tutored a family and some of the boys were crazy about it.
Seeing your easy recipe I know I have to try it.

I love Nutella! The homemade version must be even better. Plus homemade doesn't have all the preservatives.
