Nutella Nanaimo Bars


INGREDIENTS
2 sticks Salted Butter, divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
5 T. Cocoa
1 large egg, beaten
1- 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c. skinned toasted hazelnuts, chopped
3 oz. Nutella
6 oz. powdered sugar
4 oz. bittersweet chocolate

DIRECTIONS
1. For the bottom layer: Melt 1 stick butter, granulated sugar, and cocoa on on stove. Add egg and stir to cook until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat. Stir in crumbs, nuts, and coconut. Press firmly into an ungreased 10X6 pan.
2. For the middle layer: Combine Nutella with 6 Tablespoons of softened butter until thoroughly
combined. Add powdered sugar and mix until it's incorporated and the mixture is the texture of soft frosting. Spread it evenly on top of the bottom layer, and chill for at least 30 minutes.
3. For the top layer: Melt bittersweet chocolate and remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter over low heat. Cool. Once cool, pour over the middle layer and chill until firm.
4. Cut into small squares and enjoy.

***Refrigerate to store the bars. I think it tastes better if I take the bars out of the refrigerator and let them sit for about 30 minutes before eating.
