Nutella


So a part of my pastry bootcamp class, we made Nutella.  I completely fell in love with this recipe.  It is not as sweet a s the store bought nutella.  There is more of a hazelnut flavor to this version.  I realized that I left my recipe at home.  As soon as I get home, I'll update the post with the recipe ratios. 


Here are the basic ingredients: (updated
(Adapted from the French Pastry school)
500 G Hazelnut Praline (Either homemade or storebought)
125 G Butter at Room Temp
125 g Melted Chocolate (I believe it is a 1 part chocolate to 4 parts hazelnut praline )
Pinch of Salt

Directions
  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor.  Let it mix for about 5-10 minutes until you get the consistancy you like. 
How easy is that?  Guess what everybody is getting for Christmas?


I used it as a topping to my ice cream sunday (banana, strawberry ice cream, and strawberries)



I'm obessed now, don't be surprised if there are more nutella post.  I almost forgot to tell you, myself and Anna, went on a huge production of making nutella a couple of weeks ago.  I got a 7 lb can of pralines which equaled about 10 jars of nutella. 

Check back tonight for the recipe.

  31. Sorry, I finally got to comments. It has been a crazy couple of weeks.
    @baking Midwife - it keeps for a couple of months but not much longer due to the butter
    @Belinda @ zomppa - I found it online at superior nuts online
