  • In a microwavable bowl, melt the chocolate chips in microwave. Start with 1 minute. Take it out and whip it. Microwave it again for another 30 minutes. If you whip it and its melted then stop here or else microwave again for 15-20 seconds. (Do not over do it or else it might burn).
  • Now, combine roasted and skinned hazelnuts, melted chocolate chips, cocoa power, vanilla, milk, salt and 1 tbsp brown sugar in a blender and blend it smooth. Open the lid and do a test taste.
