Nutella and Hazelnut Bread.

I got the carby hankering that only copious amounts of bread can solve followed by the desperate need for chocolate. This gave me an idea for an incredibly indulgent treat which combines those two things beautifully. It's gooey Nutella and hazelnuts nestled inside soft, fluffy white bread.

Not sure what possessed me to do this other than as the ultimate birthday treat for my wonderful partner.
