Updated: Sep 3, 2019
I think we can all agree that Nutella is practically heaven in a jar- the creaminess, the richness, the chocolate flavor…need I say more? Well, just imagine incorporating all of the incredible traits of Nutella into a mind-blowing, decadent fudge. If you’re a Nutella fan, this is a delicious way to satisfy those Nutella cravings. You know what makes this fudge even better? You can enjoy every chocolaty bite without the guilt. It’s amazing how much more you can enjoy desserts when you don’t need to worry about all of the carbs.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups raw hazelnuts
Chocolate Mixture Ingredients 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup heavy cream
4 Tablespoons VitaFiber IMO Syrup ( 2 Tablespoon stevia erythritol blend may be substituted)
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
5 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line the bottom and sides of an 8x8 glass pan with parchment paper.
Spread out hazelnuts evenly on a cookie sheet.
Bake hazelnuts for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.While still slightly warm, remove as much of the hazelnut skins as possible. I found that the best method for this is to transfer the hazelnuts to a dish towel and vigorously rub the sides of the dish towel back and forth until the loose skins from the hazelnuts are removed.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine chocolate, cream, sweetener, VitaFiber Syrup, stirring consistently.Once mixture is smooth, remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
Using a food processor, blend the roasted hazelnuts until they form into a hazelnut butter.Next, add the chocolate mixture to the hazelnut butter and blend together until smooth.Add butter and cream cheese to the chocolate hazelnut mixture and blend until fully incorporated.
Transfer the fudge mixture to the prepared 8x8 glass pan.Spread the fudge out evenly and cool in fridge until solid (about 2 hours).
Notes The fudge can be stored in the freezer for longer term storage. Plan at least 2 hours of cooling in the fridge before serving.
