DIY Chocolate Cannabis Hazelnut Spread You’ll Want to Slather on Everything

Hello, Nutella lovers. In honor of everyone’s favorite holiday, 4/20, we have concocted a dreamy recipe to cure all of your munchie woes: a DIY hazelnut and chocolate edible spread you’ll love slathering on anything. Literally everything. We can’t think of something this wouldn’t taste good on.

The best part is the recipe is super simple and you’ll only need a couple of ingredients. You will need 2 cups of hazelnuts, 1 cup of heavy cream, 1/4 cup of regular unsalted butter at room temperature, 1/4 cup of cannabis butter at room temperature, 1 pound of semisweet chocolate chips, 1/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 teaspoon of salt.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F, and bake the hazelnuts on a baking sheet for 13 to 15 minutes. Halfway through baking, shake the hazelnuts to rotate them, ensuring they roast evenly.

Hazelnuts will turn a darker brown, and the skins will start to split when they are done. Allow to cool.

Place the cooled nuts in a dish towel, and rub together to separate the skins. You may have to do a few rounds of this, doing about a third of the nuts at a time. Once the nuts are peeled, place them in a food processor, and add the sugar.

Pulse the food processor until the nuts are well blended. The more you blend them, the smoother the spread will be. Blending them a little less will produce a slightly chunkier spread.

Pour the chocolate chips in a glass or metal bowl, and place over a pan with simmering water. Melt the chips down, stirring occasionally.

When the chocolate is all melted, remove it from the heat, and pour it into a separate bowl that is cool enough to handle. The bowl used to melt the chocolate will be too hot to hold, but you still want the chocolate to remain warm enough to melt the butters.

Add the regular and cannabis butter, and mix until the butters melt and are well combined.
