Homemade Nutella made from scratch. Never buy store bought Nutella again.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Nutella makes a regular appearance here on Bigger Bolder Baking. I love any ingredient that is versatile and that’s exactly what Nutella is all about. But did you know you can easily make it at home? It just takes a few simple ingredients to make the delicious chocolatey spread! Watch my video on how to make homemade Nutella and Crepes below.

And there’s so much you can use your Nutella to make including a few of my favorites:

3 Ingredients Nutella Brownies are something I made recently and let me tell you not only are they easy but if you are a chewy brownie fan then these are right up your alley.

If cookies are more up your alley then I have just the thing for you. My 3 Ingredient Nutella Cookies are simple to mix up in minutes by hand and I bet you can make and enjoy them in no time!

My 3 Ingredient Nutella Mug Brownie  is my go-to dessert when my sweet tooth kicks in late at night. Not only is it just 3 ingredients but it is mixed and cooked all in the same mug!! Crazy, I know.

Now, if you are looking for something with a little bit more sophistication for after a dinner party then you can’t go wrong with my 3 Ingredient Nutella Truffles. You won’t believe how delicious they are and they only require 3 ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 generous cups (5 ¼ oz /150g) hazelnuts
  • 100 g/4oz milk chocolate , melted and cooled
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (65g/2 1/4oz) icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (or any flavorless oil)

Instructions

  • Roast at 200º C for 10-15 mins until very fragrant and well roasted.
  • While warm rub them vigorously with a cloth towel to remove as much of the skins as possible.
  • Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and blend until it forms a very smooth peanut butter-like paste. This takes a little over 2 minutes. Note: While it is processing make sure to scrape down the bowl so that all of the nuts get blended up well. You need the nut paste to be very smooth.
  • When the paste resembles peanut butter and is smooth and shiny on top then it is done. You need to get it smooth now so that your finished nutella will also be smooth
  • Add in the remaining ingredients: Cocoa powder, icing sugar, cooled melted chocolate, vanilla extract and vegetable oil.
  • Continue blending all of these ingredients together for around another 90 seconds or so. Just like before, stop the machine to wipe down the sides to ensure everything is getting blended. When it is smooth and is lovely and shiny then it is done.
  • Store your Nutella in an airtight jar at room temperature for 4 weeks.

Hi Gemma, unfortunately I didn’t use icing sugar, but castor sugar, now it’s a little gritty, is there anyway I can dissolve the sugar?

Hi Gemma, I love Nutella but store bought has so many different ingredients, so this is a great alternative. I have had the pleasure of having Nutella from Italy and it is so delicious. I absolutely love Nutella and bananas, which had me thinking of adding some of a banana to your Nutella mug cake recipe. Nutella has been one of my favorite spreads and one thing that I have done is put it on top of ice cream like a chocolate sauce. Do you have a recipe to make Nutella ice cream that doesn’t require the use of an… Read more »

Hi Gemma, This is absolutely awesome ! I use soy bean milk which gives a lighter taste and reduce cocoa power by 50% for kids (less bitter). We love it! Easy to make and much healthier and better than nutella sold in the stores~ Thank you so much!
