grubs for a cake stall, Sylvia had gymnastics display day, we attended a carol service and the house is desperately in need of a good clean. So I bring you a simple vegan nutella recipe today that would make a good present or just be on hand for some stress relief!
white chocolate and raspberry biscuits to make great sandwich cookies. Sadly the biscuits went too quickly to make many sandwiches. The nutella also went rather quickly. We loved it on a plain rice cake. I liked the idea of packaging it as a gift but I can't give any information about how long it lasted as I didn't like to count the days it took us to plough through it.
I am sending this nutella to We Should Cocoa hosted by Munchies and Munchkins this month, to Cindy for Gluten Free Fridays, and to Lucy and Lauren for Fabulous Foodie Fridays.

Vegan "Nutella" with coconut condensed milk
Adapted from The Eccentric Cook
200g roasted hazelnuts
400ml coconut condensed milk
200g dark chocolate (70%)
1/2 cup milk or more
Blend hazelnuts to make a butter. It can take some time. Add in remaining ingredients to make it smooth and spreadable. Bear in mind that the melted chocolate will thicken as it cools so make it more runny than you want it. If it is too thick when it cools, warm it up and stir in more milk.
No milk will make it into a fudge if you keep it in the fridge. More milk will make it into a luscious sauce. It can also be used to frost cakes.
If you don't have a powerful blender, you could do it in a good food processor (mine is pretty hopeless at such things) or you could buy hazelnut butter and mix the rest of the ingredients by hand. To make this vegan you should check the chocolate, condensed milk and milk is vegan. I used soy milk. If you cannot find coconut condensed milk you could simmer milk and sugar together until you have the right consistency.
