This cocoa hazelnut spread is probably one of the best things I make.

Dark chocolate 1.5oz (or half of a bar)

Preheat your oven to 350. Spread the hazelnuts on a lined baking tray and bake for 20 mins or until roasted to a dark brown.
Lift the towel periodically, lay flat, and transfer the hazelnuts to the top towel by hand and shake out the bottom towel. This will make it easier to remove more of the skin.
If all the skin doesn't come off no worries! Just some extra fibre ;)
Once you have removed as much skin from the hazelnuts that you think you can, transfer them into a food processor or blender. Blend them until they become smooth. You can blend less for a more crunchy spread, but it's really just not as nice.
Once you've got something that looks as amazing as this, add it to your hazelnut butter. You'll hopefully get something that looks a little like this:
If it's to your liking, great! Jar it up, spread it on some paleo pancakes, dip something in it, use as icing, spread on toast.. the possibilities are endless really. If you've got a bit of a sweet tooth, add up to a teaspoon of honey and give it a blend.
