No time to bake, but craving a chocolate treat? No-Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Bars are quick and easy; no one will guess, though, since they are also chocolaty and decadent. These bars can not only be made ahead, they actually get better as they sit in the fridge – up to a month.
Everyone loves the straight-from-the-cupboard snack of graham crackers dipped in or spread with Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread). No–Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Bars have those same flavors, but take that snack to a higher level. These bars are perfect for a potluck dinner, as part of a cookie assortment,or as a casual dessert at a buffet or informal get-together. They’re Oh-So-Good and very difficult to resist. If possible, make them a day or two ahead so the flavors can blend and the graham crackers can soften.
