Rich, decadent and extremely easy to make Nutella tart – Made from scratch with little if no effort at all and ready in just 30 mins.
Who doesn’t love Nutella? I’m pretty sure there are plenty nutella-fans out there – and the famous pastry chef Pierre Hermé is one of those. Did you know he created this nutella tart recipe especially for his wife? You couldn’t expect any less from one of the best pastry chefs of the world.
I’ve decided to give a nice healthy twist to the original recipe and replace the store-bought version with my homemade Nutella. It takes 10 mins to make and it’s well worth the wait. Believe me when I say this is really GOOD STUFF.
Whether you’re celebrating WorldNutellaDay or thinking about a Valentine’s day dessert, this heart-warming decadent nutella tart will be a luxury treat for your tastebuds!
