I love the idea of making a homemade version - there are lots of recipes online - but I don't have a high power blender (one day I hope!), and my food processor could never handle making such a thing. So I was excited when I found NutiLight online. A sugar-free hazelnut chocolate spread? Yes please! I ordered 3 jars immediately.
Unfortunately, I found this product very disappointing. It tastes much like regular Nutella (i.e. fake) and I could barely taste the hazelnut at all! Also, it ain't cheap and even though the jar says it contains like 10 servings, I used half a jar just to make 2 sandwiches. My nut butter and honey sandwiches are much yummier. I think I might use this stuff in baking or desserts or just let Big A eat it (she loves it). Little A doesn't like it either.
I gotta get me a Blendtec or Vitamix so I can make my own hazelnut cocoa spread!!
