Verse Of the Day

Ciao Everyone!

Confession time.

How many times have you wanted to just take the whole container of Nutella and a spoon and have a party for one...

And  I do mean one because if you're like me, than any self-invited guests would probably be kicked out....quickly...

Maybe you have even done this. And maybe you've decided on a backup list of excuses for why the unhealthiness of Nutella is null and void when it enters into your magical realm...

Or maybe I'm alone on all of those points...

But even that tells me at least one thing about you.

You've never had Nutella.

But hey! It's all good! Because I have a solution to both problems of your high treason and mine of nonesense-ory.....

Homemade, delicious, nutritious, amazing, beautiful, and easy to make NUTELLA<3<3<3<3<3

Yeah, I said homemade. I also said nutritious. And easy;)

(I'm hoping you don't need explanation for the other adjectives listed...or you may also be having serious delusions and actually should probably get to this recipe ASAP... ;] )

(original recipe)
makes: 1 cup
1 1/4 cups roasted unsalted hazelnuts (note: if already salted, omit salt in recipe)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons stevia cup for cup
2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
5-6 tablespoons vanilla almond milk

1) Pour hazelnuts into a food processor and pulse/process/grind until completely smooth; they will become a nut butter. (For more details, see my post about how to make peanut butter). DO NOT move to the next step until nuts are totally creamy!
2)  Add rest of ingredients. If you want it thicker, use 5 tablespoons milk; if you like it goopier (like real Nutella), go for 6. 
3) Enjoy the joy:)

Ciao for now!
