  • 2 cups (250g) roasted hazelnuts with no skins
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup almond or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


In a food processor, process the hazelnuts until they turn to powder and then liquify.

Add the sugar, cocoa and vanilla to the bowl.

Slowly drizzle in the oil with the food processor running until you have a smooth consistency.


  • The natural oils in the nuts activates to make hazelnut butter in this recipe.
  • Make sure that you only add the oil half a teaspoon at a time and you stop the food processor to check the consistency.
  • You can use this to fill yummy cupcakes or just spread it on fresh bread or brioche.
  • Your end product may be a little grainy. No matter how much I processed this I couldn't make it entirely smooth.
