Chocolate Hazelnut Pie – A rich and chocolate pie that is made with lots of Hazelnuts. Naturally gluten free, rich, chocolately, and oh so delicious!
I am a sucker for Nutella. Anything that says hazelnut in the name, I want to try. Nutella No Bake Bars are one of my favorite things. They are so easy to make, and great to have around in the summer. Or Nutella Donuts! Oh my, nothing beats super easy to make donuts that are filled with Nutella.
So years ago when I saw this pie made on the Food Network, I knew I had to make it. I originally shared this recipe when I started blogging in 2011, but I remade it and am sharing it again! It is so good you will thank me. I updated the pictures too, so maybe now you will actually want to make it.
This chocolate hazelnut pie comes together in the food processor. You grind the chocolate and hazelnuts together to make this coarse sand mixture. Then everything else gets mixed together and you end up with this cake batter than is thin, smooth, and delicious.
I like to make it in a spring form pan, so it is easy to get pretty pieces. But you can do a normal pie plate, like the recipe is written for, or even a tart pan works great. It puffs up slight when it bakes, but then settles when you take it out of the oven.
This chocolate hazelnut pie tastes kind of like a brownie. It kind of reminds me of Gooey Brownie Pie. But you have the dominate taste of hazelnuts there. It is super fudgy, and great for entertaining. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and maybe a few extra hazelnuts, and everyone will be impressed!
I always buy too many hazelnuts, so if you do the same and need something else to make with them. You know if you don’t just eat them all! Check out these recipes.
Some of my favorite kitchen recipes use to make this recipe are:
- Food Processor – I love my Kitchen Aid and have had it for years. It is great when you need to do a ton of cheese, make salsa, grind nuts and so much more
- Spring Form Pan – Use your spring form pan for more than just cheesecake! Your dessert comes out gorgeous, with no messy slices.
- Rubber Spatula – Nothing like being able to scrape any type of bowl clean without scratching it up. Don’t forget one of these babies to get every last bit out of your bowl.
