Pate de noisette is just hazelnut paste with some sugar added. Technically, praline is made from either carmelized almonds and/or hazelnuts. Nutella is pretty much the same thing as pate de noisette, but I believe it has a higher sugar content. However, I'm not positive. In any case, you should be able to substitute it with no problems.

Remember, Nutella has cocoa in it, whereas Pate de Noisette does not.

I made both pate de noisette and praline noisette. I used praline noisette - milk chocolate (2:1) . I think pate de noisette needs dark chocolate however. If i try to make it like nutella can any one tell me how much cocoa(ratio to praline noisette) should i use? Thank you!
