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.
- 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)
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.
