How long can you keep at room temperature? I know it says 1 month, if it’s refrigerated.
hi Ishumnok, the month-long expiration date applies to room temp storage, as well.
very inspiring… am going out for hazelnuts now !
just bought a chocolate spread with cashews/ cocoa/ hazelnut oil/ agave syrup …. 8 oz. was $8.
Do you think a blender could get the same results?
I made this and it is amazingly good. Take a peek: http://www.friedalovesbread.com/2012/04/dairy-free-nutella-taste-cost-vs.html
can i make this with almonds?
I made this last week, and it definitely needs more confectioner’s sugar. One cup didn’t seem to be enough, so I kept adding sugar until it was more like Nutella. Maybe 2/3 cup more, I didn’t measure. Also, I’m wondering if it needs oil at all, since after a week or so, the oil is starting to float on the top in a puddle. It’s delicious, though, and more hazlenut-ty than Nutella. Also, rather than using 2 bowls I used a pyrex bowl with a tight plastic lid to shake off the nut skins.
Can’t wait to try it
Mine is too powdery…. What did I do wrong?
This is amazing! I double the batch, but kept the oil in half (2T for a double batch). No issues, no other changes. Better than Nutella and with a much richer taste.
Can’t wait!…love ATK….I wish I lived in Vermont. Beautiful pics of wintery scene from Chris Kimball….Peace!
ohh i am making this right now… love the bowl idea for getting the nut skins off… then shook them in a colander & mostly all the skins fell thru into the sink! brilliant!!
oh my GOSH this stuff is so DIVINELY DELICIOUS!!!!!! thanks so much for the recipe! made it as written, of course, because you guys rock it. My husband, myself, and our 5 & 2 year old sons had it for dessert tonight with graham crackers. loved by all.
I am going to try to make a sugar free version with splenda. All I have to do is put the splenda in the processor first to make it like powdered sugar. I have to watch my uigar intake and I love nutella, maybe now I can have it!!!
can this be made with other nuts, like peanuts or almonds as well?
So I finally made this – some comments:
This is really good, even excellent. I don’t really eat nutella because I find it a bit sickening – but this is much lighter/cleaner tasting . It was nice to be able to make it and control ingredients. Mine might need a little more oil – it’s a bit thick.
However, this is not at all cost effective. I can buy Nutella here for 2€60 while the hazelnuts alone cost me 9€ = $12.
That said, Nutella is only 13% hazelnuts.
Thanks for another great recipe!
Can I use real chocolate instead of cocoa powder?

These thin French pancakes have a reputation for being temperamental divas demanding pampered batter, a specialized pan, and supremely delicate handling. Oh, really?
