Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

"This will be the best homemade hazelnut chocolate spread that you’ll ever taste. As a young kid, I was a big fan of Nutella and still am to a certain extent so I wanted to make a spread that’s much healthier and still super tasty. I’ve made this using only 3 ingredients. It also happens to be vegan-friendly and sugar-free! Scroll down for the recipe."
