Home made “Nutella” recipe

Home made Nutella recipe

Can I make Nutella at home?

Yes!  You absolutely can, with just a few ingredients you can have your own jar of this chocolatey goodness in less than an hour

Do I need a high speed blender to make Nutella?

You do really as you need to blitz the hazelnuts.  I use my Thermomix because I can then warm the chocolate to melt it too, but you could do this all in a blender and a Bain Marie

When we got our Thermomix last year this was one of the first recipes we ever made in it and it is still one of my favourites.   And what ever self respecting pancake needs is a big fat dollop of Nutella homemade chocolate hazelnut spread

Wait, is this Palm Oil free Nutella?

Yep it is.  Though to be fair to Nutella they have made huge strides with the palm oil included in their products, and say that they are now only using sustainable, traceable, certified palm oil in all their products which is great news.
