Nutella Almond Tartlets

I have made these tartlets in the past using jam or preserves as a filling but I decided to make them with Nutella for World Nutella Day this year. These little tartlets are really easy to put together, and are just the right size for a tasty snack. I used a teaspoon of Nutella for the filling in my tartlets, but you could use a little more if you prefer. I personally found a teaspoonful was just enough to give the tartlets a nice surprise chocolate center.

Buon Appetito!
