A delicious homemade dark chocolate and roasted hazelnut spread recipe, not dissimilar to Nutella. It's a little coarser than the store-bought variety, but it's delicious nonetheless. The best part about making this spread, is that you can control what's in it!
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.
