Chocolate Hazelnut Bark

Happy Christmas Eve! I know everyone is busy finishing their shopping, wrapping presents, and anxiously waiting for Santa, but take a time out because I have one more treat to share-chocolate hazelnut bark. I recently made this bark for my guest post on Make and Takes. I make peppermint bark every year, but this year I also made a big batch of chocolate hazelnut bark.

If you like chocolate and hazelnuts together, you are in for a real treat. This chocolate bark has a special ingredient-Nutella! The bark also gets a generous sprinkling of chopped hazelnuts-which add a nice flavor and crunch. Chocolate hazelnut bark makes a great gift and is also fun to munch on during the holidays. And the best part? It is super easy to make, so you still have time to whip up a batch.

Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you all have a safe and joyous holiday!

 

Chocolate Hazelnut Bark

A perfect treat or gift for the holidays!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes (includes chilling time)

Ingredients:

2 pounds chocolate (I like to use dark chocolate)
1/2 teaspoon hazlenut extract
1/2 cup Nutella
1 cup finely chopped hazlenuts

Directions:

1. Line an 11-by-17-inch baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate, stirring constantly.

3. Stir hazelnut extract and Nutella into the melted chocolate. Remove from heat, and pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; spread evenly. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts.

4. Chill until firm, 25 to 30 minutes. Break into pieces, and serve. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Note-you can also melt the chocolate in the microwave.
