Nutella is one of my favorite things. The combination of hazelnuts, milk and chocolate remind me of the crepe Nutella that I used to eat on the streets of Paris. When it comes to gifting for the holidays I love to give a handmade gift in the form of a homemade jam or infused olive oils. This year and idea is to gift this Dark Chocolate Hazelnut spread, which is delicious with fruit or on a crusty baguette. It is easy to make and the quality is unparalleled to the variety that you can find in the jar. Here I invested in a good quality dark chocolate and heavy cream and you can taste the difference. Place the spread in a giftable jar and cover with a pretty fabric and finish with a festive flower or plant like holly or berries. Stay tuned for a delicious recipe tomorrow using this recipe for Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.
