chocolate hazelnut butter in white bowl

Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

  • Author: Kalee @ The Crowded Table


This chocolate hazelnut butter is creamy and rich, without all the added sugar. It’s perfect for dipping fruit, spreading on a crepe, or frosting a cupcake.



2 cups hazelnuts (with skins removed*)

1 1/2 cup dates (about 25), soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

pinch of salt

1 cup of water or less


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Roast hazelnuts for 15 minutes, shaking every 5 minutes or so to prevent burning.  Add hazelnuts to food processor or high speed blender and blend until they are smooth and creamy, which takes about 5-8 minutes.  Add dates, cocoa, vanilla,  and salt and continue to blend.  Gradually drizzle in water until it reaches the desired consistency.  Enjoy!


*To remove skins from hazelnuts, roast them and then shake in a mason jar, or roll between 2 towels to remove the skins.
