My original intention for making my own homemade nutella was to simply make nuts & dark chocolate the main attraction rather than the typical first ingredients of the brand version: sugar & palm oil. But, upon further thought I realized a simple kiss of dates & honey with dark cocoa powder and a ton of roasted hazelnuts were all I needed to make this insanely addictive. This spread is pretty much… dare I say it… healthy. It does require a food processor or I imagine a powerful vitamix style blender. It can be also made quickly if you buy your hazelnuts roasted and peeled. For those wishing it was vegan, up the number of dates or use your favorite sweetener instead such as agave or even stevia. Just do it to taste as I have yet to try anything other than raw, local honey.
