About this recipe: 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!

Makes: 400 g

  • 270g roasted, skinned hazelnuts
  • 35g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 80g icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 small pinch salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons groundnut oil

Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  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.
