Nutella Cream Pie




Get ready to indulge over and over again! This is the type of pie you will want to hide from others and keep it all to yourself. In fact, it is making our mouths water as we type out the recipe! Our Nutella Cream Pie is unlike any other cream pie! It's salty, creamy, crunchy and just plain delicious. Good luck sharing!

Ingredients for Crust:
1 1/2 cups of salted pretzels
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter (melted)
1/4 cup of brown sugar

Ingredients for Nutella Filling:
1/3 cup of Nutella
1/2 cup of cream cheese
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of heavy cream

Ingredients for Chocolate Whipped Cream:
3/4 cup of milk chocolate
1 cup of heavy cream

Ingredients for topping:
1/4 cup of hazelnuts, chopped (optional)

Kitchen Essentials:
Food processor
Oven
Medium Pan
9 inch pie pan
Knife
Cutting board
Kitchen Aid mixer or hand mixer
Mixing bowls
Spatula
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Refrigerator
Plastic wrap

Prep:
Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature. This will allow it it evenly mix.

Directions:
Begin by making the chocolate whipped cream first as it needs to be refrigerated for 2 hours before whipping. Start by adding the whipping cream and milk chocolate to a medium pan over low hear. Stir the mixture continuously until the chocolate has completely melted. Do not allow the mixture to boil, you just want the chocolate to melt into the heavy cream. Pour the chocolate heavy cream mixture in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool in the fridge for 2 hours.

Next, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the salted pretzels to the food processor and pulse until the pretzels become crumbs. Its ok if there are a few slightly large pieces. Pour the pretzel crumbs into a mixing bowl and add the brown sugar and melted butter. Mix well and pour the pretzel mixture to the pie pan. Using you hands, spread the mixture to the bottom and the sides of the pan. Press gently to compact the crust. Bake the crust for 10 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until the crust had hardened. Allow the crust to cool before adding the fillings.

Now on to the filling. In a mixing bowl, add the room temperature cream cheese, Nutella and brown sugar. Combine so that all the ingredients are evenly mixed. In another mixing bowl, add the heavy cream and whip until stiff peaks form. Add the whipped cream to the bowl with the Nutella mixture and using a spatula fold the mixture to incorporate the whipped cream. Add this mixture to you cooled pie crust.

Lastly, whip the cooled chocolate heavy cream mixture until it forms stiff peaks. Make sure that the chocolate heavy cream is cold, otherwise it will not turn into whipped cream. Pour the chocolate whipped cream over the Nutella mixture already in the pie pan. Evenly spread it using a spatula. Give the hazelnuts a rough chop and sprinkle over the pie.

Refrigerate the pie for 2 hours and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve! No one will be able to resist trying this creamy pie!!! Enjoy!
