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.
