Dark Chocolate Nutella

So, once you taste the liquid heaven that is Nutella + dark chocolate.  For your own safety, it must be turned into something you can’t devour in one sitting almost immediately.  Visions of me, my little jar of dark chocolate heaven and a spoon still dance in my head.

Dark Chocolate Nutella
makes about 1 cup

1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 heaping cup 85% dark chocolate medallions
1 Tablespoon butter

In a 2 cup measure, place Nutella, chocolate, and butter.  Microwave for about 30 seconds.  Let sit for a couple seconds.  Then, microwave for another 20-30 seconds.  Stir briefly.  Let warm nutella melt the chocolate.  Stir once or twice every 10 seconds or so…. until silky smooth and creamy.  Place in pretty glass jar and serve while still warm with rustic bread or brioche toast.

Nutella Toast
makes 1 slice

1 slice of bread, preferably brioche
1 thin sliver of butter
Dark Chocolate Nutella, as you wish

Toast brioche to a light golden brown.  Spread one tiny sliver of butter over the brioche.  Drizzle on the warm dark chocolate spread.  Devour immediately.

Dark Chocolate Nutella Bark
makes about 30 pieces

Dark Chocolate Nutella, warm
feuilletine, corn flakes, rice krispies, bran flakes, hazelnut granola

Combine warm dark chocolate mixture with as many of the crispy things as you like.  I added about 3/4 of a cup (or about 3 big handfuls).  Pour onto cold marble to chill.  Break into pieces when the chocolate is rigid enough to snap.
