Tips

Tip: To toast hazelnuts: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread hazelnuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake about 10 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice so the nuts don't burn. Cool slightly. Place the nuts on a clean kitchen towel; fold towel over top and rub vigorously to remove the skins.

To make ahead: Cream cheese mixture may be prepared and chilled up to 4 hours before serving.
