Fill the cavities with Nutella using a teaspoon or a sac à poche, and top them with a few chopped hazelnuts. 

Bake in the preheated oven at 170ºC (340ºF) for about 10 minutes.

Notes:

If the dough is sticky when you try to form the cavities, dust your fingers with a little bit of flour and then form the cavities. Don’t press all the way down, just enough to form the cavity without the dough around it cracking.

You can store the Nutellotti at room temperature, covered by a glass dome, for up to a week. I don’t recommend freezing them.

Variations:

Using the same recipe, I rolled some dough balls in chopped pistachios and filled them with pistachio cream.
