The Nutella here on Venezuela is almost a deluxe item is ridiculous Expensive but on the past few years have gained popularity among the people. To me Nutella is Overrated, is just way too sweet (even to me a sweet lover) is not creamy, just an hazelnut paste with milk chocolate that tend to be sticky.. just hated. until i found this recipe. Raiza's Hazelnut spread is soft, creamy, with strong chocolate flavour and you can feel the hazelnuts but is not invasive is just Delicious!. I made a few modifications to the Original Recipe (as usual) to add others flavours layers.
