On a trip to Central Market to buy chocolate, I saw that they had grind-your-own milk chocolate hazelnut butter in the nut butter area. I will be attempting to bake something with it soon. It’s a rough grind, so the hazelnuts are grainy. There’s no added sugar apart from what’s in the chocolate so it’s not as sweet as Nutella®. It tastes yummy and would make a nice cupcake filling. Nutella® is a bit too thick and sticky unless its heated. (A perfect example of heated Nutella is a lovely Nutella brioche purchased at the Thriftway earlier in the week. I wish I had photographed before eating since it was cupcake-esque….maybe a repeat visit for a future post.)
I did photograph the chocolate hazelnut butter nestled in its plastic container. I decided against posting since it ended up looking more like a laboratory sample than a pastry filling.
