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!
