  • 2 cups roasted and peeled hazelnuts*
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • cup maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup unflavored non-dairy milk (or as needed)
  1. Place the hazelnuts into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade. Blend them to a thick paste, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  2. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.

  3. Begin blending the ingredients again. Slowly drizzle in non-dairy milk as needed.

  4. Blend the mixture until smooth, which can take a few minutes, adding add as much milk as you need to reach your desired consistency. Turn the machine off and let it rest a bit every few minutes as needed to avoid overheating.

  5. Taste-test the mixture and add extra maple syrup or salt if desired.

  6. Serve.

Recipe Notes

*If you can't find hazelnuts that are roasted and peeled, you can roast and peel them yourself using this method.
