Homemade Nutella

I’ve always wanted to try to make Homemade Nutella without refined sugar and has the perfect nuttiness as the store bought one. I wouldn’t say my version is an exact replica of what you get in store but definitely tastes amazing (and I was pretty surprised at how good it tasted!) and I can have it guilt-free on top of my toast. What I liked most with my homemade version was that I could balance the sweetness from the dates and cocoa levels to my liking. Do try it, cos it’s delicious and very quick to make!
