Easy Homemade Nutella

  • Author: Food with Feeling
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups 1x


  • 2 cups of raw hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate (I prefer dark in this recipe)
  • pinch of salt
  • optional: 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup or coconut sugar (or other sweetener) depending on the sweetness of the chocolate


  1. In an oven heated to 375 degrees F, roasted the hazelnuts for 8 minutes. Let cool slightly and then place the nuts on a dish towel and rub them between the towel to remove the skins. You likely won’t be able to remove the skins completely but I aim for 50-60% removed.
  2. In a high speed blender or food processor, blend the roasted hazelnuts. Depending on your processor, this can take up to about 8 minutes. See photos above. After about 2 minutes, it will turn into a thick paste and eventually it will turn into a creamy butter.
  3. Melt your chocolate either in a double boiler or the microwave (which is what I usually do).
  4. Add in the chocolate and salt and blend until combined.
