Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
Rich as frosting, this is a spread best savored as a treat in small servings. While similar to Nutella, this spread has a darker chocolate taste with notes of brown sugar.
1 cup hazelnuts, toasted
1/3 cup cocoa powder
6 medjool dates
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons canola oil (use milk instead of oil for a milk chocolate version- with fewer calories too)
