Crunchy Hazelnuts in Silken Chocolate Cream with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Move over, Nutella, there's a new spread in town. Il Colle del Gusto's Granellona Brut is as unadulterated as it gets, with crunchy crushed hazelnuts punctuating a silken chocolate cream. Extra virgin olive oil proves itself an ideal partner, lending incredible smoothness and sheen while allowing lovely chocolate flavor and roasted nut aroma to shine through.

How to Use

Granellona Brut on a slice of rustic Italian bread is snack perfection, and there is no wrong way to use this versatile bittersweet spread. Drizzle it over ice cream, waffles or grilled peaches, spread it on the bottom crust of a banana cream pie before filling, or mix it with whipped cream and freeze overnight for a wonderful semifreddo.

About the Producer

In 2012, Antonio della Corte was creating sweet mixes for gelaterie and pastry shops and Anna Maria Conti was running a farm, bed and breakfast a few miles north of Rome. In a blend as natural as chocolate and hazelnut, the two combined their talents to produce a line of spreads made with Anna Maria's own extra virgin olive oil and nuts grown on friends' farms. We met the couple (partners in business and in life) at the farmers market in Rome just three months after the launch of their delicious creations, and we loved the spreads so much that we decided right there and then to bring them back for you.

This spread is outstanding! Rich with flavor without being too sweet. Love the crunchy hazelnuts and the smoothness the olive oil brings. Excellent as a dessert on apples or pears — and also great out of the jar.

So good!

I stirred this up and slapped it on some homemade bread. It's so good! The crunch of the hazelnuts!

Rich Hazelnut Chocolate Spread

This is a versatile treat which is great on toast or with strawberries -- a nice quality alternative -- made with olive oil (no dairy)!
