Ingredients

  • 3 Cups powdered sugar, plus more for rolling
  • 3 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon soft butter
  • 4 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Nutella
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • Maldon salt (optional)
  • One 12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil

Directions

Place the powdered sugar and butter into a bowl. Using clean hands, rub the butter into the powdered sugar until it is completely incorporated. Add the remaining ingredients and knead together until well incorporated. The dough should be a bit sticky but manageable.

Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 30 minutes. Place on a smooth surface sprinkled with powdered sugar. Sprinkle the top of the dough  with more powdered sugar to prevent sticking. Roll the dough out so that it is ¼-inch thick. Refrigerate another 30 minutes and then cut into squares and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Any scraps can be kneaded back together, re-rolled, and cut. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to overnight.

Once the squares are frozen, melt the chocolate and the canola oil over a double boiler. Dip the Nutella squares into the melted chocolate and garnish with Maldon salt if using.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
