Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

This is an easy nut spread to make if you are just learning. It is not at thick as store bought Nutella, but it tastes very similar. It is probably a very good thing that hazelnuts are not super cheap, otherwise, we would make this a lot more often than we do.

Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

We found hazelnuts on a very good sale and we wanted to make something like “Nutella”.   Researching ideas, we discovered how easy it was to make our own.

This recipe is slightly crunchy since the coconut sugar does not dissolve well.  We have tried warming up the coconut oil and mixing them before adding to the hazelnuts and that helps some.

Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Brownies

Andrea wanted a less sweet grain free brownie.  It is slightly crumbly and a little dry, but goes wonderfully with ice cream or whipped cream.

If you want it sweeter, replace part or all of the unsweetened chocolate with semi sweet baking chocolate.
