Nutella Tartine

I thought this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe would be right up my alley.  One of my favorite snacks is a piece of toast spread with chocolate-hazelnut spread (I don’t use Nutella – my favorite brand is Cocoa Haze!).

My Favorite Snack!

Nutella Tartine is a glorified version of my favorite snack.  A slice of brioche is toasted under the broiler, then spread with bitter orange marmalade.  Softened chocolate-hazelnut spread is drizzled on top of the marmalade, and then the whole thing is finished with a sprinkling of fleur del sel and chopped hazelnuts.

Nutella Tartine

Remember that brioche dough I saved from the Bubble-Top Brioches?  Well, I got that out of the freezer and made a loaf of brioche.  Yum!  I also found a wonderful orange fig spread on the clearance rack at my Safeway.  I used both to make this treat.

If you look closely you can see me in this picture.

It turns out I didn’t really care for the combination of flavors in Nutella Tartine.  I think it was the combination of the orange marmalade and the chocolate in particular that I did not like.  My husband wasn’t a big fan either.  He couldn’t get his head around the idea of chocolate on bread (not a problem I have!).  He thought a piece of that brioche toasted with butter and spread with the orange fig jam would be better (it was!).

I think I will stick to my favorite toast and Cocoa Haze! from now on.
