Boozy chocolate hazelnut cream pie is for the all the chocolate lovers in your life. As I say you’re either a chocolate lover, or you aren’t. I most definitely am!
There are two types of people in this world. Those who love chocolate and those who do not. I can relate to the chocolate lovers.
I am one myself. Something is wrong if a day goes by without just a smidge of chocolate in the afternoon or after dinner. I need my chocolate fix.
Then you have your chocolate haters, those people I don’t get. I understand allergies, you can’t control what your body rejects. However, outright not liking chocolate?!
What happened growing up that you can hate something so delicious? Something so valuable that it was once treated as currency, or as the Aztecs believed, the food of the Gods!
As you can tell my love for chocolate is strong.
Now I’m an equal opportunity chocolate lover, I like my chocolate bars, chips, cookies, ice creams and pies. Really, if it has chocolate I’m unlikely to turn it down, and this pie is no exception.
It’s perfect to serve after a dinner party, bring to a potluck or whip up just because that chocolate craving has struck hard. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream, and I guarantee you’ll have sweet dreams after you dig into a slice.
Peanut butter is usually my go-to chocolate flavor addition, but a bottle of Frangelico was collecting dust on my bar cart and a new container of chocolate hazelnut spread just happened to fall into my shopping cart one day. The combination was meant to be.
This boozy chocolate hazelnut cream pie really amps up the hazelnut aspect of the title with some ground hazelnut meal mixed into the pastry crust and a generous glug of hazelnut liqueur mixed into the chocolate mousse.
This pie is by no means difficult, the worst part is waiting for the entire thing to set. I just know you’re going to love it.
