Chocolate Almond Butter-even if you’re not a fan of Nutella, you’ll love this version using almonds!
I like to be a good mom. I like to be the cool mom. So I buy my kids Nutella. They love it. Nutella is one of those things you either like or you don’t. I don’t. And honestly, I never really thought about it. I’m not a big jelly eater either. Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches, I think I’ve had maybe one in my entire life. So the Nutella craze didn’t faze me in the least.
I never even thought about why I didn’t like this chocolaty spread that everyone else just raves about. I just went on with life.
So I’m snooping around Silvia’s Cucina facebook page and I find this photo for Homemade Nutella. I share it on my page because that’s what I do, I share yummy photos with my friends. I don’t think anything more about it and go on about my business. At the grocery store, I’m restocking my baking pantry and I notice the slivered almonds. Hmmm, maybe I’ll try that recipe from Silvia’s. I pop the 5 ounce bag in my cart and finish with the rest of my shopping.
I can now tell you why I don’t like Nutella. It’s the Hazelnuts! I am so in love with this Homemade “Nutella” I made 3 batches, using up all my almonds. I had to test out the cocoas, with and without the instant coffee. I wanted to be thorough for you. And maybe I wanted to keep licking spoons.
Making this takes no time at all and with Nutella running $5.00 and up a jar, I think we’ll be sticking with this homemade version from now on!

By the spoon, on a slice of bread or toast, spread on crescent rolls and then baked as normal, this spread is good any way you choose to try it! I can’t wait to try out all those Nutella recipes with this stuff.
I’m sharing at a few of these great parties.
