I recently came across a recipe for homemade Nutella…this is BIG news for me as I have a little bit of a love affair with the chocolate and hazelnut combo. Nutella, hedgehogs, bacio ice cream – the list continues. Any excuse to indulge in chocolate hazelnut spread is a good one, but I can now say that this little gem is a part of my regular and healthy diet! By no means is this the real thing, but it tastes dang close when you put it alongside peanut butter in a sandwich 🙂

1/2 cup skim milk
Roast hazelnuts for 8 minutes at 400 F

I love homemade cheese, spreads and dips.
I tried Vegan Cream Cheese
Tofu makes it possible.
I don’t think you even need to add salt! But this is delicious 🙂
I agree! The original recipe I used had 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon of salt and I reduced it to a pinch cause I found it a bit salty.
