Nutella Candy Recipes

By

Nutella, a rich chocolate-hazelnut spread, is delicious on its own, but it also makes a wonderful addition to candy! Nutella adds a sweet chocolate taste and a hint of hazelnut flavor to these candies. Try making Nutella fudge, Nutella truffles, or Nutella bars, and you'll never look at a jar of Nutella the same way again.
