Decadent Chocolate-Hazelnut Torte


I had a dinner party last night and was craving a decadent dessert and something I have never tried before.. Pampered Chef is famous for their decadent desserts so I found this awesome recipe that was very rich and HEAVENLY! It wasn't too difficult either...

Nonstick cooking spray with flour
3/4 cup whole hazelnuts (sometimes called filbert nuts in the grocery stores)
1 pkg (500 g) Devil's food cake mix
1 jar (13 oz or 400 g) Nutella!
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided (3 cups/750 mL)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a torte pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with flour. Place an 8-in. circle of parchment paper over center of pan. Grate 1/2 cup of the hazelnuts into a large mixing bowl. Add cake mix, 1/3 cup of the Nutella, sour cream and egg; mix well. Pour batter into pan; spread evenly. Bake 12-14 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean
2. Remove from oven and let stand 2 minutes. Invert cake onto cake pedestal and cool for 10 minutes
3. Meanwhile, for filling, combine remaining Nutella and 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping in a bowl and mix until smooth. Spread filling evenly into well of cake. 
4. Pipe 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream over torte and grate remaining 1/4 cup of hazelnuts over cake. YUM!
