We’ll be honest: Of all the Mason jar gifts a person could make, homemade Nutella is the one that makes our heart skip a beat.

There is something so decadent — and fun — about recreating this traditional European treat at home and packaging it up to surprise family, friends or neighbors. Will you save money? Probably not.

But you’ll have a ball making this — and we think it’s even more delicious than the original.

How to Make Homemade Nutella For Gifts

This homemade Nutella recipe is courtesy of Little Spice Jar. You’ll need the following:

8 ounces of hazelnuts or filberts
½ Teaspoon vanilla
¼ Teaspoon salt
1/3 to ½ Cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons coco powder
6 ounces semisweet chocolate (bars work best)
1 Tablespoon of a nut/seed oil such as walnut or sunflower. Coconut oil or vegetable oil will work in a pinch.
