Heavenly Homemade Hazelnut Chocolate Spread Recipe

Savour the delight of creating your own creamy and rich hazelnut chocolate spread with this simple recipe. Perfect for spreading on toast, swirling into your breakfast oatmeal, or just enjoying by the spoonful!





  • Step 1.

    Begin by toasting the hazelnuts in a dry pan over medium heat until golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let them cool slightly.
  • Step 2.

    If your hazelnuts have skins, place the warm nuts in a kitchen towel and rub vigorously to remove as much skin as possible.
  • Step 3.

    In a food processor, blend the hazelnuts until they form a smooth, butter-like consistency, which may take about 10 minutes. Pause occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Step 4.

    Once the hazelnuts are fully processed, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, ensuring the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  • Step 5.

    Add the melted chocolate, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt to the food processor with the hazelnut butter. Blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Step 6.

    With the processor running, slowly drizzle in the sunflower oil and continue to process until the mixture becomes glossy and spreadable.
  • Step 7.

    Taste and adjust the sweetness or saltiness, as desired. If the spread is too thick, you can blend in a little more oil to achieve your preferred consistency.
  • Step 8.

    Transfer the spread into a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid. The chocolate spread will thicken as it cools.
  • Step 9.

    Store your homemade hazelnut chocolate spread in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Let it come to room temperature before serving for the best flavour and spreadability.
