Homemade Nutella

Homemade Nutella (swoon)

Oooooh yeahhh. Holiday Homemade Nutella. This is happening.

When my favorite “deep-fried Southern belle” friend Rachel asked me to participate in her annual Holiday Bake Sew Craft Along, I was super excited. Really, I was just excited to say “y’all” in my guest post.

If you’re into DIY projects or are looking for homemade food gifts for the holidays, you have to check out this project. Each day this month, an awesome group of domestic goddesses are guest posting around the theme “a handmade homemade holiday.” Rachel’s A Southern Fairytale is hosting 30 days of food gifts, while Kelly from According to Kelly is featuring 30 days of holiday crafts, and Cindy from Skip to My Lou has 30 days of gift inspiration from the sewing machine.

Best of all, I get to offer you guys a killer GIVEAWAY perfect for the holiday baking season!

As I racked my brain for a tasty homemade gift idea to share, these Christmas Cookie Jars came to mind. They’ve always been a big hit, but I think this year I’ve found something else that may just top that: Homemade Nutella. Good heavens. This stuff is divine.

And so easy to make. No melting chocolate, no heating milk, or double boilers. Literally, this recipe is just six ingredients blended to smooth, creamy decadence, and poured into a pretty jar.

That’s it! Oh, and did I mention, it’s vegan and gluten-free? Yep, this Nutella is a winner.


They’re not perfectly skinned. Perfectly ok.

    That looks  yummy!  Last year we were going to give fudge for Christmas, but it didn’t set up right, so we put it in jars and called it fudge sauce, lol!

  8. Jenny says:

    This is my new favorite thing! After our trip to Italy this summer, I started making nutella and eating it for breakfast on an english muffin every day! It’s so easy to make and take on the run to work — and no preservatives! I’ll have to try your recipe (it seems the same except I use canola oil — but coconut oil sounds really good). YUM!

  26. jessica says:

    I’m thinking of making this ahead of time for Christmas gifts…how long ahead can I make it and how long will it last?  

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Jessica,
      Other similar recipes for homemade nutella recommend up to 2 weeks, stored in an air-tight container in the fridge. I have had mine for closer to 3 weeks in the fridge now and it is still good. Seems safe especially b/c there is no actual dairy in this recipe and all ingredients used have a pretty long shelf life. Use your judgement though.

      Your friends and family will love it!

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe and well-presented instructions.
    Our farmer’s market has a new nut vendor — all kinds of organic nuts, including raw hazelnuts. I spied them and wondered….could I possibly make “crema” that would be as good as the small container I picked up in San Francisco a few weeks ago at an Italian import store?

    I searched for a recipe and selected yours. It turned out so well! Thank you!

    The concoction seemed a little runny but I figured it would solidify once refrigerated. It has.

    Thank you!
