  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil

  • 2-3 tbsp muscovado or coconut sugar
Instructions
  1. Heat the chocolate over a double boiler (bain marie) or in the microwave in 30 second increments.
  2. Stir in the hazelnut butter, vanilla, sugar and oil, whisking well to incorporate all the ingredients.

Notes
To make hazelnut butter:
Preheat oven to 180°. Place 150g (or 300g to have extra!) halzenuts on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
Bake the hazelnuts about 5 minutes then take out and let cool down.
Rub gently in a kitchen towel to remove the skin.
Place in the bowl of a mixer and blend until a smooth dough forms. Use a spatula to help taking the mixture from the sides when you are blending.
Transfer to a glass jar and keep in the fridge for about 3 months.
