Has anyone tried making a chocolate spread? Yes? No? Well, if you love chocolate and you do love spreads I mean dessert spreads not sandwich spreads then you will be amazed by this delicious recipe. 🙂
This spread is for those Chocolate fans like my hubby!! ohhh and Hazelnut fans like me! Since I am dieting I have to be careful with my eating habits, but with this one it was truly quite hard to keep away from. When I bake or cook I have to try out the recipe to see how it turned out. Ohhh my, with this one I just could not stop 🙂 uhhh I kept tasting it, and not because it didn’t turn out well, it was just soooo gooood!!.
This is similar to let’s say Nutella with a slight difference in the texture of the spread. It is not as creamy as Nutella but it does spread beautifully and it has a intense Hazelnut taste. 🙂 One of my favorite Pastry Chef made this a couple of years ago, and I just had to try this recipe out for myself when I first saw it. I have tried a few times to make a White Chocolate Spread but for some reason it just never works out. 🙁
An absolutely scrumptious spread for bread, cookies, croissants, crackers, I can go on and on but I think you get the idea. 🙂
3/4 cup of Hazelnuts
1/2 cup of Powdered Sugar
1/2 cup of Butter
3/4 cup of Baking Chocolate or Bitter Chocolate
Add Hazelnuts and Sugar into the food processor.
Blend on high speed
Melt butter and add into Hazelnut mix continue to blend in food processor until it has become a smooth batter.
Add batter into a bowl and then add in the melted Chocolate.
Stir until you have a lovely smooth batter. Set it aside so that the chocolate can cool.
Add into a jar and place in the fridge for about 1 hour. Use this spread on bread, bagels, croissants and let me know if you liked it..:)
