Tips for making Chocolate Nutella Fudge
Bring the ingredients to room temperature. If you store Nutella in the fridge you need to make sure you set it on the counter and bring it to room temperature. The same goes for the butter.
Use a high quality cocoa bittersweet chocolate chips. They are normally a little bit more expensive then the other brands but it makes a HUGE difference in the quality of your fudge.
Leave extra parchment paper on the edges of the baking dish when you line it. This will help with removing the fudge from the pan when it is done.
Let the fudge cool completely. I know it is tempting to get your hands on fudge asap, but it is very important that you let this fudge set completely before cutting into it.

How to Make Chocolate Nutella Fudge
Bring the Nutella and 3 tablespoons of butter to room temperature.
Grease the bottom and sides of an 8- by 8-inch baking pan with butter and then line the pan with parchment paper. Leave a 2-inch overlap on the sides of the pan and set the pan aside.
In a medium sized bowl, add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, bittersweet chocolate chips, Nutella, and butter. Mix everything together well.
Set up the double-boiler by setting the bowl filled with the ingredients on top of pot of gently simmering water. The water level should be low enough that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.
Stir everything until the chocolate chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. This will take 5 to 7 minutes, be sure to keep stirring so that all of the mixture melts evenly.
Using a rubber spatula and scrape the mixture into the prepared pan, spread the top smooth with the spatula.
Once smooth, sprinkle with the sea salt.
Place baking dish in the fridge and refrigerate until the fudge is firm. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
After the fudge is set, run a knife under hot water, dry it off, and run it around the edges of the pan to loosen the fudge.
Using the overhanging parchment paper, lift the fudge out of the pan.
Carefully peel off the parchment paper.
Cut the fudge into 3/4-inch squares. You will have about 50 3/4-inch squares
Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container or wrapped well in plastic wrap and foil.
