    1. Pop the hazelnuts into a food processor. Blitz until they release their oil and a mass begins to clump together.
    2. Add the cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla, salt and oil. Process further until you get the consistency similar to Nutella.
    3. Transfer to a jar and chill for at least 2 hours. Store in the refrigerator until needed. It will keep for up to 2 months.


    To roast raw shelled hazelnuts – pop them on a tray in a single layer, then into an oven at 180 C / Gas 4, stirring occasionally, for around 8-10 minutes. The hazelnuts are ready when their skins are cracked. To skin, simply rub the cooled nuts between a tea-towel. Allow the nuts to be fully cool before grinding them.
