When I was growing up — in the time before Nutella was sold almost everywhere — my friend Tanja always brought jars of it home from her visits to family in Germany. She introduced me to this creamy, oh-so-delicious party in a jar! Nutella will always bring my mind to Tanja’s kitchen . . . and digging right into the jar with a spoon!
Chocolate and hazelnuts are one of the most delicious culinary combinations imaginable. I think Nutella is a perfect, brilliant product, and this is by far the most exciting dessert I’ve ever made with it! The crust crumbles perfectly, the praline crunches sweetly, and the filling has a silky, smooth, creaminess that’s beyond belief.
And yes, it’s Friday, so I’m also sharing flowers!
For as long as I can remember, Fuchsias have been hanging in baskets in the front yard at my parents’ house. I’ve always thought they were so sweet, beautiful, fun, and exciting. Just like this pie! (And they’re blooming like crazy right now!)
Whatever entertaining you decide to do this weekend, the pie is a must! Just do it! I promise you’ll be thrilled — as will anyone who’s lucky enough to eat it with you!
