4. Chill for 1-2 hours or until firm.

5. For the glaze, place the chocolate and Nutella spread in a bowl.

6. Bring the heavy cream to a boil in the microwave/in a saucepan and pour over the spread and chocolate.

7. Let the mixture sit for 30 seconds then stir till smooth.

8. Remove the cake from the cake pan and peel off the foil.

9. You can wait till the glaze hardens in order to spread it on top like frosting, or you can pour it over the cake so that it forms a glossy outer coating.

10. Sprinkle the cake with toasted, chopped hazelnuts and digestive biscuits to garnish.


For the Poached Pears:

1. Peel the pears and put them in a pan and add all other ingredients.

2. Cook the pears until are softened and the liquid is reduced.
