Serves: a lot
  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the hazelnut butter and oil. Whisk in ¼ cup of the cocoa powder, the stevia and vanilla.
  2. Whisk in the almond milk, approximately ¼ cup at a time, whisking between each addition.
  3. Whisk in ¼ cup of the cocoa powder, followed by ½ cup of the powdered sugar (or erythritol). Repeat with the remaining cocoa powder and sweetener.
  4. Whisk vigorously to get rid of any clumps and taste test. It should be creamy and sweet, but you can adjust to taste with 1/16 teaspoon of salt, more stevia, and/or more cocoa, if desired.
  5. Serve immediately or store in a sealable jar in the fridge. Stir before using.

    • I think you could sub the oil for something neutral (as noted above) such as rice bran oil or even canola oil. However, the hazelnut butter is what gives it the nutella-like flavor. You can use any nut butter that you like but it will be a different flavor.
