You guys on Instagram asked, so here it is!

Because I’m on Rachael vs. Guy Kids Cook-Off on Food Network, I’m not allowed to make cooking videos until the end of the year, so I am posting images and the recipe. But as soon as I can, I’ll make a cooking video for this and post it! Thanks for your patience!

Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread (Homemade Nutella)
We have a hazelnut tree in our yard. Every September, we gather hazelnuts and roast them in the oven - they are so delicious! But this year, I decided to try making a homemade Nutella. It took a little experimenting, but I like this one. It's not too sweet and the dark organic chocolate gives it a nice flavor. It's a healthier choice than the jarred spreads!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup hazelnuts, roasted, and skins removed by rubbing between cloth
  2. 3/4 cup organic, dark chocolate (chop into small pieces or use chips)
  3. 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons honey (or agave if you are vegan)
  5. Pinch salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place hazelnuts on a sheet pan and roast for about 15 minutes, or golden. After they are cool enough to touch, put them between 2 pieces of cloth and rub the skins off.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate, almond milk, honey and salt. Melt the chocolate over low heat and mix. Let it cool.
  4. Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and pulse it until it is a paste. It can still be a little grainy at this point.
  5. Add the chocolate mixture to the food processor and pulse until creamy.
  6. Store your Chocolate-Hazelnut spread in the fridge.
  7. It's great on apples as a snack!
