“Home made Nutella and peanut butter in the Thermomix. Pretty damn good if you ask me!”

{Thermomix Thursday} Nutella & Peanut Butter

After reading Lorraine’s post on homemade Nutella, I remembered I still hadn’t made it using my Thermomix. I kept saying it would be the first thing I would make, but I secretely didn’t want to because I knew I’d eat the whole batch in one sitting.

Lorraine’s post about her friend having an awful date, then going back home to no chocolate in the house, and cracking open the Nutella jar seemed like an all too familar story to most of us. When it doubt, open the Nutella jar. I haven’t had Nutella for a little while as Costco hasn’t had any in stock. So I thought it was about time I made my own!

Nutella in 6 minutes, peanut butter in 30 seconds… I need never leave the house again! I even made a jar of half and half, because, lets face it, if you haven’t tried peanut butter and Nutella together you are missing out on something beautiful.

I usually like my peanut butter chunky, so I’ll be blending it for less next time, or adding chunking bits in at the end.

Next Nutella recipe I want to try is from Quirky Jo’s blog : http://quirkycooking.blogspot.com.au/2009/10/chocolate-hazelnut-spread-dairy-free.html

So friends… guess what you are getting for Christmas! 😉

Next spread to make… Kaya!!

Nutella

  • 90g Raw sugar (or 50g if you want less sugar)
  • 80g Toasted hazelnuts with skins removed
  • 100g Dark chocolate
  • 50g Dutch cocoa
  • 70g Soft butter
  • 100g Milk
  1. Put sugar into TM bowl and pulverise for 10 seconds on speed 8.
  2. Add hazelnuts and chocolate and mill for 10 seconds on speed 8. Scrape down.
  3. Add cocoa, butter, and milk and heat for 6 minutes at 50°C on speed 3 or until mixture is of a smooth consistency.
  4. Place spread into sterilised jars. Keep refrigerated. Keeps for 14-21 days.

Peanut Butter

  • 200g peanuts (salted or unsalted)
  • 2 tablespoons oil (peanut, vegetable or canola)
  1. Place peanuts into TM bowl. Mix 10 seconds on speed 6.
  2. Use spatula to push peanuts down.
  3. Add oil.
  4. Mix again 10 seconds on speed 6.
  5. Pour into sterilised jars. Keep in the fridge once opened for 14-21 days.

    That looks great Shellie! And great idea combining the two together in a jar. Like the new pb & j!! 😀

    Flavoured nut butters are my love, my kryptonite, my obsession… I currently have snackpacks of maple almond butter, honey almond butter, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate almond butter, vanilla almond butter (it has cocoa butter in it and tastes like white chocolate) in my suitcase, plus a whole jar of Biscoff. It would be a little cheaper if I could make it like you, though 😛

    I made peanut butter once in my TM but it tasted gross. I had no problem eating the peanuts but the butter tasted (and looked like) like something the cat tossed up.

    I must try again and make nutella at the same time. This looks good – nothing like mine.

    I love spread chocolate, I’m such a sweet tooth. I’ve made sth similar some time ago, but I’ll try yours as well :)

    Nut butter is probably one of the first things I’ll make once I get a food processor. Soon!

    Ohh Costco ran outta Nutella? Damn cuz last time I went they still had heaps :) I bought a 1kg jar hehe so happy with it! But i think i should probably try making my own too it seems like lots of fun ~ but it is quite dangerous! I’ll have to give it away as soon as I make it hehe 😛

    I love this idea Michele, everything tends to taste great when it’s home made. Every time I see your Thermomix recipes though I get jealous! Must get my hands on one…

    Oh maa gaaad. What can’t you make using the Thermomix?! I’ll be calling your TQ from now on. To keep you in suspense, I shall let you know what it means next time I see ya. LOL

    Too awesome! Half and half sounds delicious 😀

    Oh my God!!
    Phew, be still my beating heart! I love the jar that is half peanut butter and half nutella, I just want to dig a spoon in for a massive mixed scoop of both!
    Very very dangerous!

    I can’t believe how quick both of those are to make :)

    Great idea to make your own nutella. I’d never even thought about making it myself. And they would make great gifts for sure.

  14. Tania @ A Perfect Pantry - September 18, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Great idea to combine them in one jar… they work so well together:)
