This Nutella Tartine is a popular snack with French school children made with toasted brioche, creamy hazelnut spread and a smear of orange marmalade. Would my family enjoy this exotic twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
An Exotic Twist on PB & J
Even though I could have eaten the whole jar of Nutella with a spoon, this didn’t wow me. I now know I prefer my Nutella without marmalade and my marmalade without Nutella. It’s not far off from a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, using Nutella instead of pb and marmalade instead of jelly or jam.
Since I have never liked the classic pb & j sandwich, it’s no surprise, I wasn’t a fan. But all those French children can’t be wrong, so give this Nutella tartine a try and let me know what you think!

A gourmet twist on the peanut butter and jelly sandwich using Nutella and orange marmalade!
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 4 slices brioche or challah bread
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup orange marmalade (I used Bonne Maman)
- Coarse salt, optional
- Toasted chopped hazelnuts, to garnish
Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil, and set aside.
Put Nutella in a microwavable bowl. Heat until softened and warmed, 15-20 seconds.
Brush one side of each slice of bread with melted butter. Put the bread on the baking sheet with the buttered side up. Broil the bread until the tops are lightly toasted, watching carefully to prevent burning.
Spread the orange marmalade over the toasted bread. Drizzle with warm Nutella. Sprinkle lightly with a coarse salt, if desired. Garnish with toasted hazelnuts.

Funny, my spouse said he prefers his chocolate and jelly combination in the form of a donut! Since I don’t do chocolate, I also prefer my marmalade seperately.
Haha – your kids were unimpressed with nutella?! 😉
Oh my word! Heavenly!
Oh boy. I want this right now1
Nutella and marmalade are an interesting combination. Marmalade to temper the sweetness while still getting a chocolate hit – I like the idea!
Who doesn’t adore nutella! The tartine looks super.
Have a wonderful weekend!
What a yummy treat, Lizzy! Nutella with your amazing white bread. Can’t think of any other treat that is more mouthwatering, and totally satisfying:DDD
BTW-I have a couple of awards waiting for you to claim!
Congratulations…well deserved, my dear friend:DDD
All of you FFWD participants are killing me today with this nutella goodness!!
Oh. Yes. *Please*.
Dear Lizzy, This is delicious. I have yet to meet someone who does not LOVE Nutella! This is a recipe that is easy and delicious a perfect combo. Blessings my friend, Catherine xo
Though this looks delicious, I guess I’ll enjoy it more without the orange marmalade. Nutella is enough to make me happy! 🙂
Enjoy your weekend, Lizzy!
Oh, I was so hoping the marmalade and the nutella would work. Too bad. 🙁 I had to laugh at the DNA comment. I wonder the same thing sometimes with my own kids (if they hadn’t come from my own body)… I would seriously wonder about them. 🙂 LOL!
Have a great weekend!!
I’m with you on spoon feeding myself Nutella. The other day, I warmed some up and used it like hot fudge on a sundae. Pretty yummy!
That looks very delicious!
What an utterly perfect snack–I often order tartines for a light meal when I’m in Europe. This looks like a lovely sweet treat!
Lizzy, this tart looks perfectly delicious! Lovely photos and a great recipe to go with it. Stay warm this weekend!
Nutella and marmalade sounds ‘special’. I am not a big fan of nutella, maybe marmalade will make it better, though I doubt it. No comments from Bill, I suppose he was unimpressed.
this looks wonderful
So simple, but so good! But then, anything with Nutella is tough to beat 🙂
It’s so blissfully easy – you can have a life! Love the Nutella with oranges. My daughter won’t touch Nutella and my son never wanted it in the house because he couldn’t keep his hands off of it.
