Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate Sandwich

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate Sandwich


• 1 cup blanched hazelnuts
• 2 ounces 70% to 75% cacao dark chocolate baking bars, coarsely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
• 1/3 cup orange marmalade
• 1/4 cup fig jam
• 1/4 cup salted butter, softened
• 4 slices of Turano Rustic Italian
• Sea Salt


① Heat a large skillet over medium. Add hazelnuts; cook, stirring often, until light golden and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool 5 minutes. Crush or coarsely chop. Stir together hazelnuts, chocolate, marmalade, and fig jam in a medium bowl. Set aside.
② Spread butter evenly on 1 side of each Rustic Italian slice. Place 2 slices, buttered side down, on a clean work surface; spread hazelnut mixture evenly on the 2 slices. Top with remaining 2 slices, buttered side facing up.
③ Heat a large skillet over low. Add sandwiches; cover and cook until golden on bottoms, about 3 minutes. Press with a spatula to flatten slightly, and flip sandwiches. Cover and cook until browned on other sides, about 3 minutes, reducing heat as needed if bread is browned before chocolate melts completely. Transfer sandwiches to a cutting board, and cut in half. Sprinkle with salt to taste, and serve.
