Hazelnut, Nutella and Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches
For his labor-intensive Candy Bars, Alain Ducasse makes hazelnut glaze and caramel pastry cream. For a simpler (yet equally delicious) version, home cooks can use store-bought ice cream and Nutella.
Gianduja Tart with Chocolate-Cookie Crust
Gianduja, the supersilky Swiss mix of chocolate and hazelnuts, is a darling of pastry chefs, who love its rich, deep flavor. Tiffany MacIsaac melts bars of gianduja in warm cream to create a luscious filling for this tart, crusted with crushed chocolate cookies and topped with crunchy toasted hazelnuts.
Nutella-Swirl Pound Cake
Lauren Chattman makes this pound cake especially rich by swirling in the chocolate-hazelnut spread Nutella. She recommends serving the cake with coffee ice cream.
These treats are a cross between an oatmeal cookie and a chocolate-hazelnut cookie—a brilliant idea courtesy of Dagmara Kokonas. She perfected the recipe meticulously, making 12 batches until she got it exactly right.
As if the chocolate-hazelnut spread gianduja isn't delicious enough straight off the spoon, its folded in whipped cream and crème fraîche for a truly decadent (and ridiculously easy) mousse. For a supereasy ice cream sandwich, spoon the mousse between chocolate wafers and freeze overnight.
Mini Chocolate-Hazelnut Cheesecakes
Grace Parisi breaks up whole, cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies in a food processor with hazelnuts and butter to create a supercrunchy crust for these delectable little cheesecakes. The cream filling in the cookies both sweetens the crust and prevents it from becoming too crumbly.
The best of both worlds, this cookie combines two of the most decadent ingredients: chocolate and hazelnut.
Brown-Butter Crêpes with Nutella and Jam
To give his crêpes a subtle, nutty flavor, Mike Price browns the butter for his batter. "Any jam will go with hazelnuts and chocolate," the chef says. "You can't screw that up."
