Cocoa Roasted Hazelnuts

Do you like Nutella? Or that flavor of spread? If so, you’ll love these. These little guys are like a portable snack version of the chocolately spread. They are quick and easy to make, great for gifts and store easily. This batch makes about 1 lb of nuts.

1 lb of hazelnuts
¼ cup cocoa
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp honey or sugar
1 tsp almond milk
½ tsp sea salt

  • In a large stockpot, combine oil, cocoa, honey, milk and salt over medium heat. Cook and stir until smooth and starting to boil. 
  • Add in hazelnuts, stirring constantly. Cook for about 10 minutes or until cocoa mixture is almost absorbed. 
  • Pour hazelnuts onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 200°F for about 15 minutes. 
  • Let cool and break apart nuts. Store in a sealed container.
