I guess this in line with the notion that if kids help make a meal they are more likely to eat it 😉 Eat it, I did!
My grandma used to pull the one-two punch – layering peanut butter Nutella on her morning toast. I only wish she were here to taste this homemade version.
I have no doubt she would love it and gobble it up as quickly as I could make it. If I don’t care much for a packaged product, give it a homemade whirl before totally dismissing it.
As it turns out, the concept is phenomenal, and this recipe’s execution makes it absolutely perfect.
I’m so thrilled to finally jump on the chocolate-hazelnut train!
Last year, I made the confession of all confessions.
I was on the fence about Nutella, and while I was enamored with some Nutella cookies that I made, I still wasn’t completely sold.I haven’t been able to put my finger on it, but it just wasn’t living up to the high expectations that the foodie world had set for it.When I first started flipping through my new favorite DIY cookbook last year and marking recipes to try, the homemade chocolate-hazelnut spread didn’t set the world on fire for me.It wasn’t until a few weeks ago when I revisited the book that I took a second glance at the recipe. In the recipe headnote, it mentioned that commercial chocolate-hazelnut spreads often lack real nut flavor and can taste plasticky. Since it seemed like they were speaking my language, I decided that if anything might change my mind, it would be this homemade version. I haven’t been able to put the spoon down since this finished churning in my food processor!In addition to being one of the easiest recipes you’re likely to find, it has officially changed my mind when it comes to the chocolate-hazelnut spread phenomenon.Maybe it has to do with actually making it myself, but the flavor truly cannot be beat.
