Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
Chocolate hazelnut spread is such a decadent treat. I’d choose this healthy vegan, refined sugar free, dairy free chocolate spread over the store bought sugary stuff any day. It’s sweet, but not sickeningly sweet, and very chocolaty tasting with plenty of hazelnut flavour. A bit of extra virgin olive gives this healthy chocolate hazelnut spread a lovely consistency. Use this spread on toast, muffins, or just eat it off the spoon. This is so simple to prepare and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Chocolate Hazelnut Spread Recipe
1 cup date paste (see my date paste recipe for instructions)
1/2 cup hazelnuts
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
Soak the hazelnuts overnight (or for approximately 10-12 hours) then add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and process/blend until smooth. Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups of vegan sugar free chocolate hazelnut spread. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
