Plus I'm working on our school's blog and twitter now. Add us- we're a fantastic Vegan Macrobiotic school: Twitter-Neschool
My twitter friends know that I've been semi obsessing about making Vegan Nutella this past week. That's mostly because world Nutella day was last week- Feb 5th 2009! I discovered Nutella while on a graduation trip to Europe when I was 18. How did I go 18 years without knowing about this chocolate hazelnut spread? It was the ideal match for toast and crepes while I was vacationing all those years ago.
Just as I learned it was world Nutella day, I knew it was about time for me to try out a homemade vegan version of this sinfully delicious treat. I used thisrecipeand while I very much enjoy the result, I must admit that this produces a chocolate hazelnut butter. After sitting the fridge overnight the dessert sets up and becomes more Nutella-like but I have the feeling I can do better. My solution involves more chocolate and less nuts. I've yet to test it out though.
Definitely give the recipe a try but don't expect the exact consistency of Nutella.
Up next, I use this Nutella in some no-bake treats!
