Molto squisito!! Chill time is at least 6 hours.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup hazelnuts, toasted and skinned
  • 1 12 cups heavy cream, chilled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (13 ounce) jar nutella
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared chocolate crumb crusts (Chocolate Cookie Crust, #134516)

Directions

  1. Note: to toast and skin hazelnuts: place nuts on a baking sheet and bake in a 350° oven for about 10 minutes or until they are fragrant.
  2. Remove the pan from the oven; wrap the nuts in a clean kitchen towel, and allow nuts to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Rub the nuts with the towel to remove the skin (ok if bits of skin stick to some of the nuts).
  4. To make the pie: place the skinned nuts in the container or a food processor; chop the nuts very fine.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream and vanilla; using an electric mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form.
  6. Put the Nutella in another mixing bowl; stir in 1/4 of the whipped cream; gently fold the lightened Nutella mixture back into the remaining whipped cream.
  7. Fold in chopped hazelnuts.
  8. Scrape the filling into the prepared pie shell; smooth over with a rubber spatula.
  9. Cover pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 6 hours or up to 1 day (until filling is completely set).
  10. May top with whipped cream, if desired.
