Homemade Nutella

I set out to make parve kosher for passover nutella last Passover because I always thought it would be heaven spread on matzah and it was. But it is just after Sukkos now and I wanted to make it again but I can't remember what I did. So I started from scratch and this version was excellent also. What I am learning is take some hazelnuts, grind them fine and mix in some chocolate and sugar and you can't really go wrong.


  • Ready Time : 0 min


3/4 cup (s)


  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 6 ounce chocolate chips or chocolate bar chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil (preferably peanut or hazelnut or walnut)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons agave
  • pinch salt


Start by toasting the nuts. Preheat oven to 350° F. Place hazelnuts in a single layer on a shallow baking pan. Toast until the skins are almost black and the meat is dark brown, about 15 minutes. To get rid of the bitter skins, wrap the cooled hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel or paper towel. Rub until most of the skins come off, but don’t worry if some remain. If you buy them skinless then just toast them.

Process nuts in a food processor, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally, until they look like peanut butter, about 5 minutes.

In the meantime, place chocolate in bowl with oil and microwave for about 1 minute, remove and stir until fully mixed and smooth. Add the agave and the vanilla and the salt to the chocolate. Then pour the whole thing into the food processor. Process until smooth, if it is not as spreadable as you prefer then add more oil to reach desired consistency.

Transfer the spread to an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator for 1-2 months. For best results, stir the chocolate-hazelnut spread before using.


Serving size – 1 tablespoon.
