Instructions for "Healthy Nutella"
In a high-speed blender or good quality food processor, add your roasted hazelnuts and blend until thick and smooth. Ensure you regularly scrap down the sides, especially as the hazelnuts break down.
Add your cocoa powder and syrup and continue blending until smooth and creamy (this could take up to 15 minutes!).
Remove and store in an air-tight container or jar!
