As we all know, Nutella is one of the major food groups and should be eaten about three times a day. Naturally I had to try and make my own.
I used a recipe from the lovely blogger The Eccentric Cook. The ingredients are only chocolate (I used a mix of dark and milk), evaporated milk, hazelnuts and milk.
This version is grainier than Nutella, and has a slightly tackier texture. However, it is not to say it is absolutely delicious. I had my jar spoonful by spoonful in two days. I would make some in future to use as chocolate sauce, by heating it and adding milk to make it runny. I would also put a big spoonful in hot milk for hot chocolate :)
I garnered two jars out of my batch, but I think it would have made more had I not eaten so much of the mixture as I went along/had a less thick consistency. However, it was worth eating so much of the mixture and I actually think it is impossible not to, therefore I say it makes two jars.
I would very much recommend giving it a go - I am giving one jar away as a present with biscuits the right shape to dip right into the jar with :D
Let me know what you think. I would also love to hear how you get your three portions of Nutella a day. Possibly to make me feel less bad about my own addiction.
