Nutella spread, created by Mr. Pietro Ferrero in the 1940’s (at its earliest form) is not only delicious scooped straight out of the jar with a spoon, but a magic ingredient used in recipes! The chocolaty goodness made with hazelnuts, cocoa, and skim milk gives baked goods an extra mouthwatering richness. It makes these Chocolate Hazelnut Tassies an amazing sweet treat that pairs wonderfully with a cup of tea or mug of fair trade hot chocolate— great to melt away the icy cold winter day.
I made the tassies for my daughter over the weekend and she loved them. However, my husband who is a hardy chocolate chip man said they were too dainty and better left for the ladies. LOL! The recipe was found in the 2012 “Taste of Home Best Loved Cookies & Candies Special Edition.” I recommend serving the yummy cookies at a tea party or book gathering!
