- 2.5 ounces good-quality chocolate [Note: I used a 45% deep milk chocolate bar]
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- ½ cup Nocciolata chocolate-hazelnut spread
- 2 tbs. Irish cream liqueur
- Dippers: I opted for fresh strawberries, dried pineapple rings cut in half, mini pretzels, and store-bought shortbread cookie.

A Romantic Valentine Dinner for Two...Featuring Creamy Chocolate-Hazelnut Dip
and decadent Creamy Chocolate-Hazelnut Dip that features Nocciolata, Italy’s organic chocolate/hazelnut spread. Nocciolata is made with carefully selected ingredients such as dark chocolate from the Antillean Islands, Italian hazelnuts (16%), brown sugar, skim milk and Bourbon vanilla extract. This deliciously smooth spread is gluten-free, kosher and contains no palm oil, hydrogenated fat, artificial flavors or artificial colors. While it’s amazing straight up out of the jar, I somehow found enough willpower to reserve enough to make my dip.
