Learn How to Roast Hazelnuts so you can enjoy this nutty goodness in your favorite salads, eat as a snack, or to make a delicious chocolate spread. You can roast them in the oven or toast them in a skillet to get a beautiful golden color, crunchy bite, and buttery nut flavor.
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a large, lightly colored baking sheet with parchment paper. Place hazelnuts in a single layer on the sheet. Toast in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Heat a medium to large, non-stick dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add no more than 1 cup of nuts to the skillet in a single layer. Toast for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Alternatively, you can place the hazelnuts in a dish towel. Close it tight and let them steam for 1-2 minutes. (This helps to loosen up the peel even more.)
