Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Raise your hands if you love Nutella! (It’s OK to admit it. We do!)

Unfortunately, that love disappears when you read the label and see it’s packed with sugar, preservatives, and additives. We stripped those back, took just 5 ingredients, and created our own Chocolate Hazelnut Spread!
