Adapted from “The Craft of Baking,” by Karen DeMasco (Clarkson Potter, 2009)

Time: 20 minutes, plus at least 6 hours’ chilling

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/8 teaspoon powdered gelatin
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts, for serving (optional)

Directions

1. In a medium bowl, whisk gelatin with 3 tablespoons cold water. Place chopped chocolate in another medium bowl. In a large bowl, combine Nutella and salt.

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring cream to a boil. Pour half the cream over gelatin mixture and whisk gently to combine; stir in vanilla. Pour remaining cream over chopped chocolate; whisk until smooth. Combine two mixtures; whisk well.

3. Pour one-third of the gelatin-chocolate mixture over Nutella; beat using an electric mixer on low speed until a smooth paste forms. Pour in remaining mixture and milk; beat until fully combined.

4. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into six ramekins. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator until set, about six hours or overnight. Serve sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts, if desired.
