There are people who love Nutella and there are people who've never tried Nutella- thats it there is no in between right?!?!
This pie is light and fluffy, smooth and silky and just downright delicious!
Perfect combination of Nutella and peanut butter-deliciously creamy and it came to be
all because of a little thing called Dessert Wars!
Dessert Wars is the brainchild of Reeni from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice and Christine from The Cupcake Bandit. This is a competition with a new ingredient each month, this months is Nutella, designed to push us out of our comfort zone and try something new-and there are prizes!!
The prizes will be posted at the end of this post.
After checking around I realized there are like a million and one Nutella recipes!!
I really wanted to come up with something different so once this pie "came to me;)"
I checked around the net and was pleased to find there wasn't already a recipe out there.
So I looked around for a basic silk pie recipe and went from there.
As always the full recipe is available through the printable link.
This is what I came up with:
Make a pie crust and bake it-no pictures for this step.
In a medium sauce pan cook sugar, chocolate, milk and corn syrup together stirring occasionally, to the soft ball stage-234 degrees.
Remove from heat and add Nutella.
Beat lightly for a few minutes.
Pour into cooled pie crust.
Chill thoroughly before filling layer.
Mix together the filling ingredients-cream cheese, Nutella, peanut butter, powdered sugar, pudding mix and milk. Beat until smooth.
This part is super important-
MAKE YOUR OWN WHIPPED CREAM!!!
Just one of those things you just do;)
Then gently fold into filling mixture until well blended.
Pour over fudge layer.
Chill before serving...please..it's totally worth the wait!
Top with more HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM;)
Sprinkle with shaved chocolate 'cuz it looks pretty!
Do you want a bite???
Here ya go....YUM!!!
