 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pints         nut or chocolate chip ice cream or frozen --
 softened
                         yogurt
    2      pints         strawberry ice cream or frozen yogurt -- softened
    2      pints         vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt -- softened
                         Coarsely chopped toasted hazelnuts
                         (optional)
 
 Spoon 3 tablespoons Nutella into small pastry bag with small plain tip. Set
 aside to use for topping.
 Wrap outside of 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides
 with foil. Spread nut or chocolate chip ice cream evenly in bottom of pan.
 Using small spoon, drop half of remaining Nutella by teaspoonfuls over ice
 cream, spacing drops evenly (do not spread). Freeze until firm, about 30
 minutes. Spread strawberry ice cream evenly over. Drop remaining Nutella by
 teaspoonfuls over ice cream, spacing drops evenly (do not spread). Freeze
 until firm, about 30 minutes. Spread vanilla ice cream evenly over. Using
 spatula, smooth top. Pipe reserved Nutella decoratively over top. Freeze
 just until Nutella is firm, about 30 minutes. Wrap torte in plastic and
 freeze at least 6 hours or overnight. (Can be prepared 1 week ahead. Keep
 frozen.)
 Let torte stand briefly at room temperature to soften slightly. Remove foil
 and plastic from pan. Using knife, cut around sides of pan; release sides.
 Press hazelnuts into sides of torte, if desired.
 
 This torte consists of three flavors of ice cream or frozen yogurt that are
 layered with Nutella, a creamy hazelnut-chocolate spread available in
 specialty foods stores and most supermarkets. (Look for it where the peanut
 butter is sold.) The Nutella freezes firmly on the ice cream, but is soft
 enough to cut through.
