Today I'm going to post the recipe of a famous Italian chocolate and nuts called "Nutella".
Of course this receipe will give you the chance of making it at home, tasty and healthy, sweetened as you want and witha great hazelnuts flavour.
The recipe is easy and quite quick, the only thing you must pay attention to is nuts whisking: you must obtain a smooth cream and it takes quite long, even half an hour with electric mixer.
5 oz. whole toasted hazelnuts
3 1/2 oz. milk chocolate
7 oz. dark chocolate
3 1/2 oz. sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup peanuts oil
vanilla seeds from a fresh vanilla bean
Put hazelnuts and sugar into the electric mixer and start whisking: whisk untill you have a greasy cream (it's nuts' oil) then add the two kind of chocolate in tiny pieces and whisk again.
Add milk and peanuts oil then vanilla seeds then mix well once again.
Put on fire, cook in a bain-marie for about 15 minutes, untill you have a thick cream, well amalgamated.
Let it get cold then pour in glass jam jar.
Store in the fridge, use within about 2 months.
It's great in the morning on fresh bread, every child in Italy eats it, I think you can compare Nutella to the American peanuts butter.
P.S. : this is the real Nutella in its packaging:
