How interesting - I made homemade nutella a few months ago and the recipe I used is totally different to this one! I used melted chocolate and no butter and a few other things. If you want to look at mine, it's : www.poiresauchocolat.net/2010/05/nutella-degustation.html

Simply brilliant. Every time I go to the grocery store these days, the nutella just stares back at me asking me to buy it. I resist for some crazy reason. Homemade sounds delish!

Jean

I agree--who doesn't like Nutella? This homemade version looks wonderful--no additives, simple, pure. Thanks for posting!

Melanie

Looks so yummy, and no trans-fats! :)

Interesting. I'm surprised you used butter. Hazelnuts naturally have fat so I wonder if after processing them, if milk could be added to moisten and thin the mixture. I think I'll try that and see if it works!

I was excited to try your recipe- went right out and bought the ingredients! But alas, I was very disappointed with the results. Not at all like the real thing. Sorry.

Anneohirsch- interesting idea. I think the butter is added as a replacement for what is usually in Nutella (vegetable oil). It gives it a creamier texture and adds to the spreadability. I would think that adding milk would greatly decrease the number of days that it stays fresh. No?

Susan- I'm sorry to hear you were not satisfied with the results :( True, it is NOT like the real thing. And to tell you the truth, that's one reason I like it. If you were expecting a completely smooth result, then I can understand being disappointed, since it has more texture than actual Nutella (kind of like the difference between chunky and smooth peanut butter). But another reason I really like it, is that it's made without any partially-hydrogenated oils (the US version has peanut oil), and although it is very high in fat, I think that, in moderation, a little butter won't hurt you.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I'm so glad to find yours! This home made Nutella sounds like such a good idea! I'll have to bookmark this recipe ;-)
