Strawberry Nutella Bars

Strawberry Nutella Bars




I love Nutella. I would eat a jar everyday if I could. Make it into a food group of it's own, you'd get my support.

And I don't think I'm alone. Nutella theft has been seen quite a bit lately, with the Nutella theft in Germany which was valued at over $20 000, and the Nutella thefts in Columbia University, where the Dining Services spent close to $5000 on Nutella per week, while students would steal away with it soup containers and other containers to eat later.

But I found a jar of Nutella at the very back of my cupboard the other day...right where I was hiding it from myself. Good thing I found it, I had a major chocolate and strawberry craving. And so, these bars were made.

These were very buttery, and rich, but oh so good at the same time. Next time, I think I would make it with less butter.

    2.   Combine the crust ingredients, and press on the bottom of the prepared baking dish, and bake for 10 minutes.
    3.   Meanwhile mix together the strawberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch and vanilla.
    4.   Microwave the nutella for 15 seconds, or until melted. Spread evenly over the baked crust.
