Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Spread? No problem! Here I have a 100% healthy version for you, which definitely tastes even better than the original! Because so many supermarket products contain a lot of palm oil or sugar, which in my opinion these spreads do not need at all.

Here I have a step-by-step instruction in pictures (further down you can find the steps in the recipe):

The spread is versatile. For example, I love to use it as a topping in porridge, as a sweet spread on bread or as a snack spoon in-between when I need something sweet, because I don't have a guilty conscience afterwards. Sure, the spread is very high in calories due to the high percentage of nuts, therefore one should enjoy it in a limited amount, but it is still much better than bought.

It becomes really creamy soft and can be sweetened as required. However, you should keep in mind that the more maple syrup or similar you use, the harder the cream becomes.

Basics

I already have a small weakness for chocolate hazelnut spread, but I think that there is always too much sugar in the bought ones (often over 40%) and too little hazelnuts. Besides, in my opinion, some ingredients like palm oil aren't necessary. So I prefer to make the spread myself and know what's inside. And since you only need 3 ingredients for it, it is 100% healthy and can even be enjoyed completely sugar-free.

Duration 40 minutes
Ingredients for 1 big jar
  • 400g hazelnut
  • 100g vegan dark chocolate, at least 70%
  • 30g maple syrup, agave syrup or similar (optional)¹
Preparation
  1. roast the hazelnuts in the oven at 160°C circulating air for about 15 minutes until they are light brown
  2. after they have cooled down a little, put the hazelnuts in a cotton cloth, form a bag and rub the nuts together to loosen the shell, which cannot be removed 100%
  3. place back on the baking tray and roast again for about 5 minutes at 160°C circulating air
  4. Let it cool down completely
  5. put it in a blender and mix until a smooth mixture is obtained, depending on the blender make a break from time to time so that the blender does not overheat
  6. melt the chocolate in a water bath or at low lewel in the microwave
  7. add chocolate to the hazelnut butter and mix again briefly
  8. if necessary, add liquid sweetener²
Remarks
¹ The liquid sweetener is really optional. If you like very bitter chocolate, you probably do not need any additives. You can simply add it to your taste. Careful: The more liquid sweetener you add, the harder the cream will be. Sounds funny, but that's how it is!
² Stored at room temperature, the spread will last a few weeks in a previously boiled glass.
