Move the nuts in the pan with the back of a spoon to remove the skin.
Transfer the nuts to a food processor. Blend them until they are finely chopped. Add the vanilla extract, sugar, almond milk and vegetable oil. Blend to mix well all the ingredients. For an even creamier consistency add more milk or oil. Add the cocoa powder and blend it again.
Transfer the hazelnut spread to a clean canning jar using a spatula. Enjoy with bread or baked goods.
