Chocolate Hazelnut "Torte"

serves 10

Preparation Time: 20 min

Cooking Time: 5 min

What You'll Need:
1 (16-ounce) frozen pound cake
1 (13-ounce) jar chocolate hazelnut spread
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream

What To Do:
1. Horizontally slice frozen pound cake into 4 layers. Place bottom cake layer on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Spread with a thin layer of chocolate hazelnut spread, then place another cake layer on top. Repeat with remaining layers and spread.

2. Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl.

3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring cream to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate chips and stir until mixture is smooth. Let cool 15 to 20 minutes, or until ganache begins to thicken slightly.

4. Starting at one end, slowly pour ganache over entire cake until well coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Chocolate hazelnut spread can usually be found alongside the peanut butter in most supermarkets.

We're thinking that a nice hot drink would wash this down beautifully! Why not try a warm mug of our Citrus Tea or a steamy cup of our Mocha Cafe au Lait.
