No-Sugar Added Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
  1. Place your chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 10 second increments until it’s all melted.
  2. Heat a dry skillet over your stovetop (don’t spray it with nonstick, just leave it dry). Add the hazelnuts and toss them around a minute or two, until you can begin to smell the nuts. Remove from heat immediately.
  3. Combine nuts, melted chocolate, oil, milk, vanilla, sweetener and salt in a food processor or blender (I used my Nutri-Ninja) until smooth. If it’s not smoothing out/blending, add milk by the tablespoon until it gets going.
  4. Transfer to a clean container (I used a glass jar). This is NOT a recipe developed for canning. Refrigerate and use this within a month. I personally like it right off the spoon (and a spoonful is enough for me). I also tried it on a Pink Lady apple and that was divine as well.
  5. To answer your inevitable question, no it doesn’t worry me having this around. Sweet stuff is not my trigger – salty food is! (Which is why you will never see a WLS-friendly Dorito recipe coming from me.) If sweet stuff is your trigger I would not be hurt if you decided to pass on this one. Seriously…it’s ok!
