Gift giving Day 4

I swear Christmas is sneaking up on me.  One minute I had all the time in the world and next I am scrambling and trying to get everything done.  I got most of my shopping done except for The Best Friend (Girl).  This weekend is a cooking candy weekend and maybe breads.  For my fourth gift, I made Nutella.  For those do not know what Nutella is, it is hazelnut and chocolate goodness.  This is a favorite in my house and since I learned to make it in my Pastry Boot camp, I made it all the time.  I thought it was perfect for Christmas and most of my friends and family knows or maybe has Nutella in their house.  I love my recipe because it is not as sweet as the store bought version.  I purchase 7 lbs of Hazelnut Praline so I am making a lot of nutella.  Here is an updated version of the recipe:

Nutella

(Adapted from the French Pastry school)

517 G of Hazelnut Praline

155 G of Dark Chocolate, Melted

155 G of Butter, Soften

1 Tsp of salt

Direction

  1. Mix together in a food processor (mixing it by hand is quite hard). 
  2. Once it is well incorporated: jar it up, serve it, or just eat it straight from the container Open-mouthed smile

I’m now debating what type of bread to go with this for my gift baskets…..any suggestions?

  1. I think a cinnamon swirl bread would be delicious. I have one on my site that I just love. Or a dark chocolate loaf. Yum! Thank you for sharing with me, my friend!

  5. Your nutella looks so good. Where did you get hazelnut praline? i think that Nutella would be good with banana bread.

  7. Oh yes, this does look like the perfect gift! In fact, there are several bloggers around that would be drooling for this recipe alone.

  17. Where would I be able to find a conversion table for the G to cups or ounces? A trusted site or could you possibly post it? That would be so helpful, I plan on making this for Christmas baskets with possibly some home made bread as well to compliment it. Thank you so much for posting this recipe, now time to go on making this myself. Thank so much and have a wonderful day!
