Chocolate Hazelnut Torte

Dino’s friend Fongaboo recommended this pie a while back, and this is the second time Dino has made it. The first time, he used pecans instead of hazelnuts. This time, he used hazelnuts, and it was an insanely decadent torte that tasted like Nutella. It’s super rich and chocolaty, and not for the faint-of-heart.
