Homemade Nutella !

Okay Nutella fanatics..I know there are tons of you out there...I personally do not care for it, but my kids and sisters are huge fans.  Here is a healthier version of it, you can make at home...There are a few variations to this recipe, so if you don't have the ingredients for this one, see links below. 

The original recipe instructs to strain the spread at the very end, but I don’t mind a little nut texture in mine. Adapted from the Encyclopédie du Chocolat, by way of David Lebovitz.
1 1/2 cup whole hazelnuts
1 1/2 cups whole milk
3/4 cup powdered milk
1 Tbsp. mild-flavored honey
pinch salt
1 heaping cup chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, or chips
1 scant cup chopped milk chocolate, or chips
See the rest of the recipe on Babble

Another version...
adapted from the LA Times
2 cups raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened good quality cocoa powder
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons hazelnut oil, more as needed

Full Recipe

And one more version..this one looks the best, but not real healthy....but then again, ya can't always eat healthy.
