- 2 cups of hazelnuts - 100 g of a chocolate bar (we use Kaoka black chocolate with 75% cocoa) - honey to taste - 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract - 1 pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180 ° C. Place the hazelnuts in a paper tray and bake them for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on a cloth. Cover with another cloth, and rub the hazelnuts to remove the skin. Do not worry if you can not remove skins completely. Put the hazelnuts in a food processor and grind them, be careful on scraping the sides of the processor with the help of a spatula. Grind it until you get a creamy, butter-like consistency. In a medium pan, melt the chocolate bar in water bath until completely melted and creamy. Add to the hazelnut butter. In addition, add the coconut sugar (or honey), the vanilla extract and the pinch of salt. Back to shred to obtain a homogeneous mixture and adjust with coconut sugar until you achieve the desired sweet level. Transfer to an hermetic bottle and store at room temperature.
