Living in Italy for three months of my life I learned to love nutella! I have always been a peanut butter kid and when I got to Italy and found out it was 8 Euro for a tiny jaw of peanut butter I knew I needed to find a new staple for my time there. Then I found nutella… everywhere! There was nutella gelato, nutella cookies, it was everywhere and it was cheap! Then I got back to the states and my parents didn’t understand why I was eating chocolate on my toast at 8am in the morning, so instead of eating it for breakfast I have now discovered a few recipes that include nutella in its rightful place…. for dessert! Below is my first experiment with nutella for dessert and I hope you like it as much as my coworkers did!
1 Cup Nutella – A small jar is only a little over a cup to make it easy for measurement
6 Cups Rice C rispy Cereal
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 Bag of Marshmallows – 10 ounce bag.
6 Tbsp. Butter
Start by melting the butter over low-medium heat, in a large pot (remember we are adding the cereal into this bowl too!). Then add the marshmallows and stir constantly till they are melted. Once the marshmallows have melted add the nutella and vanillia and stir.
Once those have been mixed take the pot off the stove and add the cereal. The nutella mixture should cover all the cereal.
In order to start the next step, make sure you grease your pan ever so slightly so you can get at these delicious treats once they have harden. After you have greased the pan you can lay out the cereal and nutella mixture. Let it sit for about an hour to cool and harden slighty.
Once they are cooled you can cut them up and serve! Enjoy!
