February 5, is World Nutella Day!
Nutella is a sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread. It can be eaten with fruit such as bananas, strawberries or apples. Or on a nice crusty baguette or toasted bagel. Or with crepes.
There are indeed many ways to enjoy Nutella. One popular way is the simplest way… straight off the spoon.
We used already roasted hazelnuts in this recipe. Even though these hazelnuts were already roasted, we put them in the oven for a few minutes.
The heat releases the flavor in the hazelnut and they blend up better in the food processor.
This recipe contains much less sugar than the original Nutella but still has a great taste. I used regular cocoa powder but you can use unsweetened cocoa to make this a sugar free spread.
