Peanutella – Can you make Nutella with a Different Nut?

Homemade Nutella made with Peanuts – Why would you make your own? well………….

I have made Nutella on my channel here using hazelnuts just like the original recipe but it got me wondering if I could make something similar using a nut that may be more easily available and maybe less expensive.

Now I love peanut butter, and I do make my own,so I thought you must be able to make a chocolate spread using Peanuts and Voila!! here it is.

Easy, quick, tasty and with so much less sugar than the original store bought Nutella. What more could you ask for.

If you check out the amount of sugar that is in store bought Nutella, you can see why I started experimenting to see if I could make a Sugar reduced Version.

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing healthy about this Recipe, but if you want to indulge in a Peanut Chocolate treat, you won’t go far wrong with my Homemade Recipe.
