Can anyone recommend a specific brand of hazelnut extract? There's a spectacular variety in pricing and concentration, and I'd rather avoid one made mostly of propylene glycol.

Never understood the concept of hazelnut extract, for me it's kind of like butter flavour or tofu bacon.

If you want it to taste like hazelnuts, get hazelnut paste in there.

Or make your own extract. Toast skinless hazelnuts, then steep in brandy.

Or give it a shot of Frangelico...
