Chocolate Hazelnut Tartufo
October 28, 2009

We Italians do love our gelato, Nutella and espresso, and KTPOPPY you hit the nail on the head with this! All three lovelies in one quick fix! This is as fine a gelato as any I had in Rome as well - it's just stunningly, decadently delicious! Silky smooth, mildly chocolate and boldly espresso. Unfortunately, with just hubs and me it was impractical to make the little tartufos, but they sure would make a beautiful presentation for a dinner party - particularly an Italian themed dinner! I did garnish each serving with chopped, toasted hazelnuts (we always referred to them as filberts growing up), a cherry and the shaved chocolate. Aside from being sinfully, awesomely good, this is beautiful too. I made this exactly as the recipe directs and would do so again - KT has the ingredients and proportions of them perfectly accurate. Just a thought...this is so rich and wonderful on its own, I think the frozen whipped topping would only be an unneccesary distraction. But if you must, for garnish, I would give this the real whipped cream it deserves! But only if you must...
