Chocolate Hazelnut Bark

Jump to Recipe

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!

  1. Where do you buy your hazelnuts?? I live in Las Vegas and I usually go to Trader Joe’s but they haven’t had them for months! Something about them being stuck in customs in LA since they are shipped in from Taiwan or something? So I haven’t had any hazelnuts this year ๐Ÿ™

    The bark sounds delicious and once I get a hold of hazelnuts I can’t wait to make my own batch!

    1. I bought hazelnut extract at Whole Foods, but Fra Angelico would work well too! Or you can even leave it out, I am sure it will still be tasty:)

  2. Looks really wonderful maria. I have to say though, I’m a bit relieved that Christmas is over. I’ll be glad to get back to regular baking and cooking! ๐Ÿ˜€
