Hazelnut chocolate spread

Chocolate hazelnut spread is a huge favourite of mine. I love it on warm toast the best, but my kids love it on fruit slices for afternoon tea. Making my own takes no time at all and it lasts in the fridge for a few weeks. Plus I know exactly what goes in it so can enjoy it more often. Play with the oil quantity until you find the perfect consistency for you and try toasting the hazelnuts first, it adds so much flavour.
