Caramel Nutella Crustella

Every once and a while, I have a vision of some new dessert.  Caramel Nutella Crustella is a scrumptious and easy recipe.  It  will definitely appear on our holiday table.  Although the original recipe, Nutella Crustella, is a staple at the lodge, I figure I can always make it better!  If you love pie crust, chocolate, and caramel, you have to make this for your someone special.
