  1. Add coconut oil and hazelnuts to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Blend on a low speed for 15 seconds and then increase to a high speed for 35 seconds (until blended time reads 50 seconds).
  2. Stir mixture towards center of jar, then secure lid.
  3. Blend on a medium speed for 50 seconds. Stir, secure lid, and repeat this cycle two more times.
  4. Add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar to jar and secure lid. Blend on a medium speed for 50 seconds.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving. 

To toast hazelnuts:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread hazelnuts on shallow baking sheet and toast in oven until skins darken, approximately 8-10 minutes. To ensure even toasting, stir the hazelnuts after 4-5 minutes in oven, then finish toasting.
  3. Wrap the cooled hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel and rub towel back and forth to remove most of the hazelnut skins.

Note: If making in Twister jar, decrease ingredients by half.

  • Can the powder sugar be substituted for something like agave syrup or honey?

    Humberto on

  • I make it in my twister jar. I blend the nuts and oil at 2 for the 15 seconds, then up to 7 (i think) for the rest of the cycle. I add the rest of ingredients and blend on 5 or 6 for another full cycle. I go up in speed slow though, probably 2-3 seconds on each speed till I reach the one I want.

    Suzanne Wheatley on

  • Has anyone made this with coconut sugar or other natural sweetener (not stevia, I am very sensitive to the bitterness), we don’t use refined sugar.

    mezalkb on

  • Coconut sugar is the same as regular sugar, except it costs 4x as much

    blurr on

  • I made this and followed the recipe step by step, but I ended up with a thick paste. I don’t know this happened

    marya on

  • I used the speed up to 5 and let it run the cycle, then repeated and once it wasn’t throwing things upward, with a spatula, gently moving the top of the sides into the middle, repeating the speedup to 5, until it was the right consistency.
    I do this with raw almonds to make almond butter, and it only has 3 tsp of oil to 3 c. of almonds and makes great butter, so with 1/2 c. of coconut oil, is should be plenty smooth!

    Janet Muhn on

  • I going to try it with coconut sugar or sucanat. I’ll blend the granulated sweetener first to make it powdered, then dump it into a bowl and proceed with the recipe as written. I’ve powdered sucanat before in the blender for frosting and it worked great. Can’t wait to try it! Most of these blendtec recipes have at least one ingredient I don’t like so I was happy to see one that could be easily modified to my preferences!

    ksl on

  • I’ve actually been making this for a couple of years.

    Cut the sugar. Nutella is WAY too sweet anyway. And whenever I serve MY Nutella.. everyone compliments how they like it better … LESS sweet.

    Use stevia with a little honey or maple syrup instead. Also, the coconut oil re-hardens after a while, making it harder to spread. Mix olive oil or grapeseed oil with the coconut oil.

    I used a bit extra oil to make sure the blend was complete, and ran it through a couple of cycles. Towards the end, I added some ground flax seeds (which I also ground with my blendtec) to thicken and also add more fiber and Omegas.

    And DO make it in the twister jar if you have one. I bought the twister jar just for my Nutella. Makes it SO much easier.

    Dominique Storni on

  • Can you make this in the vitamix and which co gainer would I use.. I new to this blender life. Thank you

    Janie on

  • I use stevia (get the LeafSweet brand. It has the best taste). Then I add a little bit of raw honey or 100% maple syrup to help with the stevia taste.

    Dominique Storni on

  • It sounds like you could really benefit from a Twister Jar. I’ve never had to add any oil to any of the nut butters I’ve made (dry roasted almonds are one of my favorite).

    Mike Kloss on

  • Use speed 1 for low, speed 9 for high and speed 5 for medium. :) Yes, you should be able to continuously blend if using the Twister jar. You will also want to decrease the recipe if using the Twister jar. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • I use just the herb that has been blended to a powder. No bitter after taste. Also much less expensive and you can grow it yourself.

    Sweetbramble on

  • That is not entirely the case. Coconut sugar keeps the blood sugar from spiking like it does with regular sugar. It is also less processed.

    Sweetbramble on

  • I followed step by step with my brand new twister jar…and now my blender is smoking with Over Temperature on the display!

    Matthew E. on

  • This was very frustrating. The nuts and oil would only be in contact with the blade for a second or two, then it was spinning free with ingredients below the blade and up the sides. Constant stop/scrape/start process that went on forever and still ended up with grainy spread, even after almost doubling the coconut oil. It was also hot and smoking or steaming each time I took the lid off. Is that supposed to happen?

    Dartha on

  • Hi Matthew, we’re sorry you experienced issues while making this. Please give our customer service team a call at 1-800-748-5400 if you’re still having issues or want to talk to someone about what happened.

    Blendtec on

  • Did not work, was a huge disappointment. Turned out hot a beyond grainy

    Jamie W on

  • What jar did you use? Was the coconut oil melted? Did you use roasted nuts? We recommend using roasted hazelnuts that have been cooled completely. The result will be warm/hot because that is what happens when the nuts are processed.

    Blendtec on

  • We used a twister jar and got it right on the second try. We followed a recipe similar to the comments.

    1. Use twister jar
    2. Half all ingredients
    3. Mix nuts and melted coconut oil on speed 2 for 15 seconds. The mixture will be slightly warm.
    4. Slowly increase the speed to 7 (increasing every 2-3 seconds), until the end of the cycle (cycle ends at 50 seconds)
    5. Add the powdered sugar and cocoa
    6. Blend on speed 2 for 23 seconds – this was the perfect consistency. Then we realized we forgot an ingredient
    7. Add vanilla. Blend on 2 for 15-20 seconds. It was a little thicker after this blend. The mixture will be warm (not hot).


    Kristina Lawrence on

  • Fantastic recipe. Mine turned out a little more nougat-y (my preference), since I may have used just a hair more nuts than called for. I only ground the nuts in the blender. Since I don’t have a Twister jar I then put everything in my food processor and ran it on high for 20 seconds. Be sure to transfer it into a large jar before the coconut oil cools down, so it’s easier to pour or spoon.

    zc on

  • If you use another nut, it won’t be "Nutella" anymore but you can make a chocolate nut butter using another nut (almonds, peanuts, etc.).

    Blendtec on

  • What other nut could you use besides hazelnut? What less expensive nut would work?

    Kaylee Johnson on

  • Has anyone tried other nuts? Pistachios sound like a good option for best nutrition.

    Shawn Debbad on

  • What speeds (or preprogrammed cycles) would these be, for those of us with numbered speeds? Also, could some of the cycles in step 3 be skipped if made in the Twister Jar?

    Mike Kloss on

  • yes
