Chocolate & Hazelnut: A Gluten Free Match Made in Heaven

August 19, 2011

A classic combination, chocolate and hazelnut has been immortalized by the famous European spread, Nutella. But there is so much more to this perfect pair than a simple (albeit addictive!) spread: cake, cupcakes, fudge, brownies, ice cream - the possibilities are endless for this dynamic duo of deliciosity! Here are 5 of my favorite gluten free (and vegan!) recipes for chocolate hazelnut desserts!
