Whether you spread Nutella on bread, pancakes, over ice cream, or just eat it with a spoon; the chocolate spread with hazelnuts is a favorite treat for many. So we thought it would be a great idea to dive into the kitchen and think of ways we could combine our love of cannabis with our love of this chocolate treat. We have two recipes for you. The first is quick and simple. The second is a little more work, but also more rewarding. What you need, no matter which recipe you want to try, is cannabis oil. How to make this yourself, you can read here. Note: You can use hazelnut oil instead of olive oil to keep that super nutty flavor!
RECIPE 1: FROM THE STORE
This is the easy recipe and doesn’t take much time and effort. Ingredients:
- Jar of Nutella from the store
- Cannabis infused oil
- Place the Nutella in a mixing bowl.
- Stir in a dose of cannabis oil for each serving of Nutella. You need to make sure it is well mixed into the chocolate.
- Store in the refrigerator and enjoy!
RECIPE 2: DO IT YOURSELF
This recipe is still simple, but is a little more work than the previous one. In this recipe, you will make your own hazelnut spread all by yourself. Ingredients:
- Roasted hazelnuts
- Cannabis oil
- Cacao powder
- Vanilla bean paste
- Optional: Extra sugar
Note: If you can’t find roasted hazelnuts, you can roast the raw ones yourself. To do this, remove the shell and place them in a preheated oven (at 180 degrees Celsius) for 10 minutes. You can also roast the nuts first and then remove the shell, if you find that more convenient. Method: 1. Place your nuts in a blender (yes, very funny). 2. Grind the nuts for about 20 minutes, stopping occasionally to redistribute the nuts. Eventually you should end up with an even nut butter/paste. 3. Transfer the ground nuts to a bowl and stir in a dose of cannabis oil for each serving. Generally, 2 tablespoons are a serving. 4. Stir in your cocoa powder and vanilla bean paste. There is no set amount, so you need to proceed slowly, always testing to see if you have reached the desired taste. You can also add sugar if you want it sweeter, but hazelnuts already contain a lot of natural sugars. 5. Once you have mixed everything evenly, store the mixture in the refrigerator to enjoy at your convenience. If roasting your own nuts is too much of a hassle, you can also use raw hazelnuts to make the butter, but it won’t stay fresh as long in the fridge. That’s it! Now you know how to combine a favorite treat with your green friends! Eat it with a spoon, or use it as an ingredient in cooking. Everyone will love it!
