    20 minutes


3 cups raw or roasted unsalted hazelnuts

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp sea salt

2/3 cup dark chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and add hazelnuts to a baking sheet in a single layer. 
  2. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Then transfer to a large kitchen towel and use your hands to roll the nuts around and remove most of the skins.
  3. Leaving excess skin behind, add hazelnuts to blender. Blend on low until a butter is formed – about 8-10 minutes total – scraping down sides as needed.
  4. In the meantime, heat the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments. Set aside.
  5. Once the hazelnut butter is creamy and smooth, add the vanilla and salt and blend well. Then add melted chocolate a little at a time and blend again until well incorporated. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more salt or vanilla if desired.
  6. Transfer to a clean jar and store at room temperature for everyday use for 2-3 weeks or more.
