I had ran out of my Healthier Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and I needed some to make some Blackberry Chocolate Hazelnut Snack Bites for a client. My original version is light and airy, great for a cake frosting or filling. I wanted to make one that was more creamy in consistency. Just one little tweak made all the difference. Now I have both types: one for frosting and fillings, and one for dipping, drizzling and whatever else I can come up with.
I promise this version you will want to keep on hand in your refrigerator.
- 1 c hazelnut flour/meal
- 1 tsp pure vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 c dark chocolate chips, melted
- 3/4 c plant milk
- 1/2 c Date Paste
- 2 tbsp aquafaba (The liquid from canned chickpeas)
Combine all the ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend on the nut butter setting. You may need to stop and scrape the sides down. Just start over. This actually only took about 2 minutes to blend.
Taste for sweetness and adjust as needed.
Share. Eat. Enjoy.
