These Nutella and Brie Crostini are inspired by a grilled cheese-like sandwich that some friends had at their wedding. It may sound weird, having brie and something chocolate based together, but it so works! I switched it up by making it a quick and easy finger food with the same great flavors.
I fell in LOVE with Nutella when I was living in Italy for a college study abroad program. I swear it tastes amazing on any and everything. You can use any hazelnut chocolate spread here, but I love the original.
You can easily make the crostini rounds in advance and store them in a container or resealable bag. Then it takes just a few minutes to top them with Nutella, a slice of brie, and warm them up in the oven. A perfect quick and easy party finger food!
These Nutella and Brie Crostini disappear rather quickly at a party, so make more than you think you need!
- 36 crostini (see link below for how to make crostini)
- 6 ounces brie cheese
- 1 1/4 cups chocolate hazelnut spread (such as Nutella)
- sea salt (or kosher salt)
- Cook your crostini rounds as per recipe instructions through the link below if not done already. This can be done up to two days in advance and the crostini kept in an airtight bag or container.
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- Place the crostini on a silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Spread approximately 1 Tablespoon of nutella onto each crostini. You will need more or less depending on the diameter size of your bread.
- Cut the brie into strips 1/8 inch wide. You can leave the rind on the brie (it is edible). Cut the brie strips down to just shorter than each piece of bread and place on top of the crostini.
- Place the crostini in the oven and cook just until the brie is starting to melt, approximately 7-10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle with a sea salt or flaky salt. Serve immediately.
