The cocoa and hazelnut cream is one of those recipes that it is better not to make if you do not have willpower, because once you start you cannot stop eating. Also, with the excuse that it is homemade and healthier , you end up putting on your boots.

Best of all, it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and all you need is a blender or food processor. It is delicious, in fact we like it better than the packaged ones and it can be used to eat it alone or to make many other recipes.

The homemade cocoa and hazelnut cream is also known as Nocilla.

The main ingredient of this type of creams in industrial version is sugar and vegetable oil.
In the case of Nutella, it only contains 13% hazelnuts and 7.4% cocoa. As for the Nocilla, it has 4% hazelnuts and 8.5% cocoa. For this reason, we prefer to make our own homemade version to our liking. If you want to know more about both products, we recommend that you read this entry on the cookie monster, which is very interesting.

As it has much less sugar, it is less sweet, although you can try it on the go and add more. You can also rectify the rest of the ingredients while you are making it. We have used coconut oil because with the cold it hardens and makes the cocoa and hazelnut cream have a harder consistency , but you can use the oil you want. If you use chocolate bars instead of powder, it will also be more solid.

Cocoa and Hazelnut Cream (Homemade Nutella)

Difficulty: Beginner Prep Time 10 min Total Time 10 mins Servings: 30 Best Season: Suitable throughout the year



  1. In a blender or food processor add the toasted hazelnuts and grind them .

  2. Add the oil (ideally it should be liquid, so if you use coconut oil and it is solid, heat it a bit so that it melts), the cocoa powder (or chocolate), the sugar , the milk and the vanilla extract . We beat again until all the ingredients are well integrated and the cream is uniform.

  3. We let it rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours so that the texture is more consistent, although if you can't wait you can eat it right away .
