- Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
- - 3 cups raw hazelnuts
- - 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- - 15 Natural Delights® Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
- - 1½ cups apple juice
- - pinch sea salt
- - ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 375˚F. Spread hazelnuts onto baking sheet. Roast for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and immediately pour the hazelnuts onto a large kitchen towel. Gather up the ends and rub the nuts together inside the towel. Open the towel up and remove the skinless nuts. Repeat the towel process if necessary for nuts with remaining skins. Remove as much of the skins as possible, but do not not worry if a few remain. Add the nuts and remaining ingredients to a food processor. Blitz until smooth (about 5 minutes). You may need to add a little extra apple juice to obtain your desired consistency. Store the spread in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
