It’s no secret how much I love chocolate and hazelnut. From brownies to more elaborate desserts, I’ll take that combo in just about any way. Plus, I’m sure I’m not the only one here who always has a jar of Nutella in the pantry ready for a quick fix. Go on. ‘Fess up.
Back to this pie…. The pie crust method I’ve included in the recipe below is the one that works best for me. If you have a pie crust you prefer making or had just rather go the store-bought route, go for it.
Whatever your crust preference, this filling will bring much happiness to chocolate and hazelnut fans. The total package is a twist on chocolate pecan pie. Sweet, gooey, chocolate-y filling topped off with toasted hazelnuts. Oh, yeah.
I suggest serving this pie warm, although I’ll take it pretty much any way I can get it.
