A delicious spread from the great French pastry chef Christophe Adam 



Hazelnut Chocolat Spread

The Spreads and the Nutella, the good and the bad

Nutella has always been one of my favorites for an afternoon snack, but after looking at the nutrition facts I decided to make my own…
Hazelnut Chocolat Spread
Christophe Adam is a great pastry chef and a star in France. He’s best known for his eclairs but he also sells Spreads.
This is one of his recipes

Ingredients

Hazelnut Chocolat Spread
 
½ Cup Sugar (120 grams)

1 Cup Hazelnuts (180 grams). Whole

⅓ Cup Milk Powder (40 grams)

2 Tablespoons Butter (27 grams)

½ teaspoon Salt (3 grams)

1 Cup Gianduja (300 grams)

3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder (20 grams)

 Additional (for adjustment)

3 oz Dark Chocolate (80 grams). Valrhona “Coeur de Guanaja”

Grind finely for about

5 minutes

Adjusting…

I have to add 3 oz or 80 g of melted

Dark Chocolate

to reach to right consistency, but the quantity will depend on the consistency you want to reach.

Be aware that the mix will always look liquid after grinding it and will harden in the fridge

Preservation

I keep the paste in the fridge, and then let it warm up

15 minutes

minimum at room temperature before using it
