How To Make Chocolate Hazelnut Spread At Home

It only requires a few simple ingredients.

Whether it's spread (thickly) on toast or simply eaten by the spoonful, it's pretty safe to say that everyone is a fan of Nutella. Creamy chocolate mixed with hazelnuts -- what's not to love?

But if you're trying to eat more healthily or avoid palm oil, or both, then you should 100 percent try making your own version of Nutella.

Homemade choc hazelnut spread is easy to make and incredibly delicious. You can even experiment and make different types -- from brownie batter spread to chocolate peanut butter and 'almond-ella' spread.
