  2. Remove from oven and let cool then use your hands to roll the nuts around and remove most of the skins.
  3. Add hazelnuts to a high-speed blender and blend till smooth intermittently scraping down the sides.
  4. Heat the chocolate over a double boiler till melted, and, using a spatula, add to the hazelnut mixture with vanilla and sea salt.
  5. Once the hazelnut butter is creamy and smooth, add the vanilla and salt and blend well. Then add melted chocolate a little at a time and blend again until well incorporated.
  6. Transfer to a jar and store at room temperature and store for up to 2-3 weeks.
