DulceDelight's picture
After you learn how to make a hazelnut spread you will learn how to turn it into the best hot chocolate you ever had or turn it into a hazelnut mousse. Hazelnut spread can be very versatile and I think that the best use of it is definitely not spreading.
  Almonds 40 Gram
  Hazelnuts 160 Gram
  Whole milk 400 Gram, hot
  Powdered whole milk 60 Gram
  Honey 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Bittersweet chocolate 170 Gram
  Milk chocolate 140 Gram (Should have at least 33% cacao solids)
For hot chocolate:
  Half and half 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Hazelnut spread 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
For mousse:
  Egg whites 3 Large (At room temperature)
  Granulated sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Heavy cream 400 Gram, chill
  Hazelnut spread 3 Cup (48 tbs)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Toast the hazelnuts and almonds for 7-10 minutes in the oven.
3. In a bowl, add hot whole milk, the powdered milk, honey and salt and bring to a boil. Once it starts to boil, put the lid on and turn off the heat.
4. Add the toasted hazelnuts to a clean dish towel, fold and rub on them to take the skin off. Do this while the nuts are still hot.
5. Add the skinlees nuts into a food processor and grind well.
6. In a double boilder, heat and melt the milk chocolate and dark chocolate.
7. Add the heated milk mix along with the melted chocolate into the food processor and blend well together.
8. Transfer into a glass jar and refrigerate until you want to use it.
9. For the mousse: Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip the egg whites until soft peaks are formed.
10. Add the sugar and continue to whip until hard peaks are formed.
11. Then, whip the heavy cream until hard peaks are formed.
12. Add in the hazelnut mix into egg whites bowl and fold until incorporated.
13. Next, fold in the whipped heavy cream as well.
14. For the hot chocolate: Bring to a boil the half and half along with the hazelnut spread. Pour into a cup and serve.

15. The rest of the hazelnut spread can be used for other desserts or to eat with bread, cookies or anything you wish.

TIPS: Once refrigerated, add 2 tablespoons of the spread into warm milk or half and half to make a hazelnut drink.
