No-Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Pie

by Erin

Love peanut butter pie? Well then get ready for this slightly altered version using chocolate-hazelnut spread. Looks a bit fancier but just as unstoppable.

No-Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Pie 2

My apologies for my absence on Friday. Last week snuck past me and then I was whisked away to Indianapolis for a science conference (yay nerdage). As such, I wasn’t able to make the lemon meringue pie I originally had planned to post last Friday. I got as far as baking the crust Thursday night only for it to puddle in the pie pan, thoroughly discouraging me from continuing on that venture. I should’ve known better than to turn on my oven to bake something when it’s still hot out. So what do you do when you want pie but don’t want to turn on the oven? Make no-bake pie of course!

No-Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Pie 1

It had been awhile since I had used a spread that wasn’t peanut butter so when I got my hands on a jar of Nocciolata (pronounced no-cho-lata), I decided to incorporate it into my beloved peanut butter pie. So yes, this pie is essentially a chocolate-hazelnut version with a no-bake Oreo crust, fluffy and creamy chocolate-hazelnut filling, and topped with toasted chopped hazelnuts. After I housed a monstrous slice in one sitting (after swearing I’d save half for later) I made Bob bring it to work so it would no longer tempt me. Apparently one of his coworkers proclaimed how he didn’t like nuts while continuing to shovel bite after bite into his mouth. It’s that good.

In case you were curious what the heck Nocciolata is and what makes it different from the others you may be familiar with, it is made with organic ingredients such as hazelnuts, cocoa and cocoa butter, natural vanilla extract, raw cane sugar, and skimmed milk. Also while other brands use palm oil, Nocciolata is made with sunflower oil and contains less sugar. It’s essentially a chocolate-hazelnut spread you can feel less guilty about having for breakfast!

[…] biscotti were also stuffed with a layer of chocolate-hazelnut spread, AKA Nutella/Nocciolata. Whenever I use this spread in a recipe I think back to when I took a 2 week trip to Italy in 2002 […]

Scrumptously, delicious. I made 1/2 a recipe yesterday and had to return to make a full recipe today. I also made little ones in muffins tins for a party. Thank you again for a tasty easy recipe.

I love Nocciolata and this pie is the perfect way to use it! The texture looks so silky and luscious and I WANT IT

I love that this is so easy but looks so showoff-y. And sounds delicious!

spiffycookie September 3, 2015 - 12:24 pm

Showoff-y yet modest at the same time!

Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry September 1, 2015 - 2:41 pm

No bake sounds like recipe perfection to me!

I eat it by the spoon! But this pie looks amazing.

Smeared on a banana!

I love a no-bake pie and especially with that chocolatey crust! I’ve never tried nocciolata but if it’s anything like nutella I think it would be a winner :)

Joanne September 1, 2015 - 8:56 am

I have zero energy to bake a pie, but no-bake? I can handle that. Especially if nocciolata is involved! That stuff is magic.

Delicious! Such a creamy texture!

Judy September 1, 2015 - 6:09 am

This pie looks delish. Can’t wait to try it.

Yay for no bake and love this chocolate hazelnut pie :)

I like to spread it on crackers and put it in my baked goods.

I may be the only person in America that has no experience with this product. If I win, I will have to experiment.

Rosie August 31, 2015 - 4:52 pm

I like to make homemade ice cream, and swirl this in when it is ready to go into the freezer, adding it to different flavors from vanilla to chocolate!

My favorite way is to use it in cookies instead of peanut butter.
