The First Chocolate Spread (1950s, Italy)

Mobirise

Why did it take until the 1940s for chocolate to become spreadable? And what was the first chocolate spread like? This recipe is for a pre-nutella chocolate spread – more hazelnuts and chocolate, less sugar and oils. And it is definitely one you want to make.

Ingredients: (Makes around 750g)

300g blanched hazelnuts
120g of dark chocolate
150/200g of sugar
150ml of milk (best to measure by eye, however)

Mobirise
  1. Pulse the hazelnuts to a paste, and if you find they’re a bit dry, add dashes of milk. Put it to a mixing bowl, then add the sugar, then the melted chocolate on top.  
  2. Add milk until it is a good consistency. You can eat it right away, or refrigerate it in a pot for a more settled result.
