Feeling French? Try this Nocciolata tartine recipe

Do you like chocolate? Do you like the combination of chocolate and hazelnut in spreadable form? How about some fruit too? If you’ve nodded your head ‘yes’ to these questions, then this recipe just might be for you. Especially if you’re feeling particularly French this weekend, make yourself a cappuccino and whip up this delicious tartine, featuring Nocciolata and Fiordifrutta from Rigoni di Asiago.

I mean, what better way to try out a new product that by putting it to the test in a recipe? Rigoni di Asiago provided a jar of their Nocciolata – a creamy chocolate and hazelnut spread – and a jar of their Seville Orange Fiordifrutta – a  fruit spread – along with the tartine recipe. The recipe is based on one from the cookbook “Around My French Table”. It’s an almost foolproof recipe and will take you less than fifteen minutes to make.

Nocciolata Tartine Recipe


  • 1/4 cup Nocciolata
  • 4 slices of challah or brioche bread
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Seville Orange Fiordifrutta
  • Fleur de sel (or other coarse salt)
  • Hazlenuts (toasted and chopped, for topping)


  1. Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Put the Nocciolata in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water and heat, stirring frequently, until just softened and warm.
  3. Brush one side of each slice of bread with the melted butter. Put the bread, buttered side up, on baking sheet.
  4. Place under broiler until bread is golden. Remove from oven.
  5. Spread Fiordifrutta over the toasted bread.
  6. Using the tines of a fork, drizzle the warmed Nocciolata over each slice of bread.
  7. Top with a sprinkle of fleur de sel and chopped hazelnuts.
  8. Enjoy!

It’s a sweet treat for breakfast or a delicious dessert/snack. I’m sadly a disgrace to my French heritage and am not the biggest fan of the chocolate/orange combo. BUT the Orange Fiordifrutta was very good on its own. Each jar contains only three ingredients and no added sugar. Making this in the future, I’d substitute the orange for their Raspberry Fiordifrutta. They have plenty of flavor options, so you’re sure to find your favorite fruit/chocolate combination!

The finished product!
