This dessert contains the basics with a twist. Any self-respecting home should have every one of these ingredients on hand at any given moment......save one! Well, needless to say I introduced my girls to the decadence that is Nutella. So try out my new recipe and let me know what you think.
Chocolate Hazelnut Panini Sundae
4 slices white bread
1/4 cup nutella, divided
2 Tbsp hazelnuts, chopped, toasted and divided
2 cups vanilla ice cream
olive oil cooking spray
Preheat panini grill or us a grill pan. Coat with cooking spray.
1 - Trim crusts from bread slices. Spread 2 tablespoons Nutella evenly over 2 bread slices. Sprinkle evenly with nuts. Top with remaining 2 bread slices. Place sandwiches on panini grill; cook 1 1/2 minutes or until golden brown. If using a regular grill pan be sure to flip the sandwich to toast other side evenly. Cut each sandwich diagonally into 2 triangles.
2 - Place panini triangles on individual plates. Divide ice cream over top.
3 - Place remaining 2 tablespoons Nutella in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 20-30 second or until warm. Drizzle 1 1/2 tsp over each scoop of ice cream. Garnish with remaining toasted hazelnuts. Serve immediately.
My advice, take small bites and savor this dessert.....it is truly a treasure. Unfortunately, I did NOT take a picture of my dessert after preparation. I guess this means I'm just going to have to make it again so I can post a photo!
