I really miss these, but it looks like this recipe is missing the chocolate. Interesting idea, though.

the chocolate is in the hazelnut spread. it's that Nutella stuff, it's chocolate and hazelnut. it's hard to find one without dairy though, i have the best luck with generic grocery store brands.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I figured it was like nut butter.



I guess I'll have to go on a search now!

Awww, I really want to make these for a potluck this Sunday... Is there anything I could use in place of the golden syrup? I can't find it in my country. Also, should I finely crush the rye crackers?

yeah I would think that corn flakes would actually be a little better.

well actual ferrero rocher use a sort of wafer. you can probably buy plain wafer anywhere that sells a lot of baking stuff like bulk food stores or whatever. that would work better than crackers i would imagine.



there are generic brand versions of nutella that are vegan, you just might have to try a few stores before you find it.



as for golden syrup i think corn syrup would be pretty close wouldn't it?

I don't like rye at all, but we bought some rye crackers and made these. I didn't notice them tasting like rye. The chocolate and hazelnut taste was dominant and the rye crackers seemed to add texture and crunch. I was careful to pick some rye crackers that didn't have added spices, so that may have helped too.



I ended up using corn syrup and that worked. I might try it with agave nectar next time, but I expect that will change the flavor somewhat.

How do you make homemade nutella?! Do you have a recipe? Or even a rough idea of ingredients and i'll have a little play around.

Generic Nutella? I only know of one place that sells a Nuttella like spread and it is not vegan. I might have to search around for this.

I got this off another forum. It's a nuttella type spread recipe. Obviously you could use agave for honey. I plan to try this soon.



For the "Chocolatine" spread, you'll need:

1/4 jar of almond butter (16oz, no sugar or salt added)

1/4 cup good quality, sweet honey

1 to 1 1/2 tbsp of pure cocoa powder

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

A little pinch of salt (I use the Himalayan pink salt)...salt brings out the sweetness.

>Blend the almond butter and the honey. Then incorporate the other ingredients 1 by 1 by blending them with the honey-almond paste.

Pour in a "tupperware" dish with a lid.

I leave my spread on the countertop or inside the pantry but not in the fridge...it makes it hard to spread. Now I suggest starting with 1 tbsp or cocoa powder, taste and add some more if necessary...It depends how chocolaty you like it.



...Now if you don't like chocolate but still like almonds, here's my "Amandine" or "Almondine" spread recipe:

1/4 jar of almond butter (16oz, no sugar or salt added)

1/4 cup good quality, sweet honey

A little pinch of salt (I still use the Himalayan pink salt)

>Proceed as above. I didn't add vanilla extract because I don't think it taste that great with it. The pinch of salt is optional.

****I have a blog--check me out!

^ ooh yum, that looks nice. I'll have to try it out seeing as I can only order this spread online



I've just made my second batch of these. They're lovely and very much like the real thing. I was unsure about ryvitas but decided to try them anyway. I couldn't find original so I got sesame seed ones. Sometimes you can get a very slight taste of the sesame but otherwise they're perfect. I'll try original when I'm done with these

I'm assuming you mean something like rye crisps, more like a wafer, and not rye crackers like a normal cracker, right?

I assume so, but I'm not really sure. I say try it both ways and report back on which version is the tastiest.

I've seen a vegan hazelnut spread at a HFS... It was pretty expensive, though! It might be cheaper to figure out how to make it yourself, but I'm not really sure.



It seems like rice wafers would work really well in place of rye - just a thought.
