Creamy Chocolate Hazenut Dip

This is a simple and yummy dessert dip that is great for fresh fruit, pretzels or even shortbread cookies. I made this for my daughter's first birthday party, and it was a hit. Creamy chocolate hazelnut spread pairs perfectly with the richness of the cream cheese and cool, almost tart flavor of the sour cream. A sprinkle of Kosher salt enhances the delicious sweetness of the chocolate and helps the flavors of the dip really come together. This dip is sweet and light and will be the perfect addition to any party you throw!
Yields: Approximately 1 cup

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup nutella, softened
3 tbsp. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
kosher salt

Whip ingredients together until light and fluffy. Serve at room temperature. Keep for 2-3 days in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Microwave for 20 seconds and stir to soften after refrigeration.
