Hazelnuts have particular properties which suit the chocolate in this recipe, just as peanuts suit peanut butter. However, I know hazelnuts may not be readily available in some countries, so you can make my Homemade Nutella using any nut – it’s simply up to your preference of nut flavors. Try a small portion with any nut that has a little oil in them like almonds, peanuts, macadamia, and Brazil nuts. These nuts are great for this recipe because they’re ‘fleshy’, making them easy to skin. You will need to roast the nuts slightly for the best flavor. I recommend roasting them for about 8 minutes in a 180C/350F oven before blending. If you’re looking for a nut-free Homemade Nutella, try replacing them with your favorite seeds! Tools You Need To Make Homemade Nutella: Measuring cups and spoons Baking sheet Cloth towel Food processor (alternatively, blender) Spatula How Do I Make My Nutella Smooth? The Nutella we all know and love is extra smooth and silky. In order to achieve a similar smooth texture for your Homemade Nutella, make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl so that all of the nuts get blended up well. It’s crucial for the nut paste to be very smooth to prevent a grainy texture. Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making The Best Homemade Nutella: Did your Homemade Nutella set up overnight? Simply pop it in the microwave for a few seconds or stand the jar in a bowl of warm water to resolve it! Want a vegan substitute? Try my Healthy Nutella (Vegan) recipe! Alternatively, you can use vegan chocolate or a higher cocoa content chocolate. For sugar substitutes, check out my article ‘The Best Sugar Substitutes for Baking & FREE Substitutes Chart!’. Although vanilla extract packs a stronger flavor since it comes directly from the beans, vanilla essence will work in a pinch! If you’re using a blender instead of a food processor, blend the nuts in smaller amounts so that they don’t bind the motor. Want More Nutella Recipes? Try These!
