Last week I shared one of my favorite ways to whip up a quick last-minute dessert by using phyllo cups.  The desserts I shared with you were these springy Lemon Curd Tarts.

Today I want to share another easy filling that you can add to these cups.  I am like most other people in that I love Nutella, so when a found a recipe for a Chocolate Hazelnut Tart, I was just waiting for an excuse to make it.  The recipe was actually for a 12-inch tart, but I did not have time to make a crust on this particular day, so I cut the filling recipe in half, filled the phyllo cups and topped each one with a toasted hazelnut.  The tartlets were perfect for a little one-bite fix!

The filling requires no baking and really couldn’t be much simpler.  Literally 5 ingredients and 5 minutes later and you will have a thick and creamy Nutella filling that will satisfy any sweet tooth.
