  • 1 cup shelled unsalted hazelnuts
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

The Recipe How-To

Roast the Hazelnuts

Before we start, we have to roast our hazelnuts to give them an extra nutty flavor. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the shelled unsalted hazelnuts onto the prepared baking sheet and roast them for 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown. After roasting, remove the hazelnuts from the oven and transfer them to a clean towel. Rub the towel over the nuts to remove any loose skins.

Make the Hazelnut Coffee

Crush coffee beans using a coffee grinder until they are finely ground. Then, place the grounds in the coffee maker with 2 cups of cold water. Brew the coffee as you normally would, but add 1 tablespoon of powdered espresso or instant coffee to boost that coffee fragrance.

While waiting for your coffee to brew, we can make hazelnut syrup.

Create Hazelnut Syrup

Combine 2 cups of water, 2 cups of sugar, and 1 cup of roasted hazelnuts in a saucepan. Over low heat, bring it to a simmer for about 5 minutes until it turns into syrupy consistency.
Remove from heat and strain over a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth. Voila! You got your very own DIY delicious Hazelnut-flavored Syrup!

Combine Flavors Together

In a separate bowl, mix together 1 part prepared brewed coffee, 1 part hazelnut syrup and stir well.

Prepare Your Iced Coffee

Fill a tall glass with ice cubes and pour over it your hazelnut coffee mixture. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate sauce if desired.

Tip: instead of making ice cubes out of plain water, use brewed hazelnut coffee instead.

Congratulations, you have just made your very own fantastic hazelnut iced coffee! Take a sip and enjoy the refreshing hazelnut-flavored drink on a hot summer day!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

These coffee-scented hazelnuts are a perfect snack to make ahead and store for later. Once cooled, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. I wouldn’t recommend storing them in the fridge or freezer as this can affect their texture and flavour.

Reheating the hazelnuts may cause the sugar to melt and crystallize, making them less crisp. However, if you need to reheat them, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a preheated oven at 300°F for just a few minutes until they’re warm. Be sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.

These hazelnuts are also a great addition to your morning coffee routine. Simply add them to your coffee maker or French press when brewing your coffee for an added coffee fragrance and sweet nutty flavour.

These make-ahead nuts are not just great as a snack but can also give you that extra boost of energy while fighting off hunger pangs between meals during the day.

To make the perfect Coffee Scented Hazelnuts, here are some tips to ensure success. Firstly, make sure to use the freshest ingredients available. This simple yet essential step can make all the difference in flavor and overall outcome.

Next, when brewing the coffee, opt for a quality brand that has a rich and robust taste. A popular choice is Green Mountain Coffee or Starbucks but choose any brand you like. Additionally, make sure to use a coffee maker or French press that will allow the coffee to fully infuse with the hazelnuts.

When making the hazelnut coffee syrup, be sure to dissolve the sugar completely in the water before adding in the ground coffee beans and hazelnut extract. This will ensure that there are no grainy sugar crystals left in the final product and that the flavors are evenly distributed.

For added depth of flavor, sprinkle cinnamon or cocoa powder over the cooled coffee scented hazelnuts before serving. Another suggestion would be to dip them in melted chocolate for a decadent treat.

Finally, storing these delicious morsels properly is key to maintaining their freshness and optimal flavor. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week, or in the freezer for longer shelf life.

As we approach the end of our recipe article, it’s essential to address some questions that might pop into your mind regarding this stunning coffee-scented hazelnuts recipe. Here are some answers to the frequently asked questions related to the ingredients, variations, and preparation of this dish.

How do they make hazelnut flavored coffee?

Hazelnut coffee gets its flavor from the addition of oils, either synthetic or natural, to coffee beans that are usually considered of low quality. When coffee is impacted by several defects or is given an extended period to age, often many months or even years, it becomes classified as low-grade.

How do you add natural hazelnut flavor to coffee?

When it comes to making your perfect cup of coffee, the first thing you should do is choose a roast that will suit your tastes. Once you’ve got that sorted, get some unsalted hazelnuts, shell them and add them to your coffee grinder. You’ll want to grind the beans and nuts together until they’re at your preferred consistency. When that’s done, brew it up in a French press and get ready to enjoy one of the tastiest cups of coffee you’ve ever had.

Can you put hazelnut extract in coffee?

If you’re keen on sipping a cup of hazelnut flavored coffee or latte, hazelnut extract can be your go-to ingredient for this purpose. Simply blend a small quantity of hazelnut extract into brewed coffee or use it as a spray on the beans before grinding. To flavor around 10-12 cups of brewed coffee, only half a teaspoon of hazelnut extract is sufficient.

How do you make Folgers hazelnut coffee?

To make a hot and delicious coffee, heat it in the microwave for around 30 to 45 seconds on HIGH. Stir it properly until the coffee dissolves and then pour in some steamed milk. Finally, garnish the coffee with a dollop of creamy foamed milk on the top.
