If forced to chose only one food to eat for the rest of time, I’d have to choose Nutella…probably. I mean, it’s just the most delicious thing ever invented. It is equally enjoyable on plain white bread as it is baked in to muffins, or even straight from the jar (you know you’ve done it too). Sometimes when you get home from work you need a little pick me up before you start dinner. Spoon. Jar of Nutella. Heaven.
Usually homemade versions of things are superior to the shop bought variety. Now, I’d love to own that accolade and say this Nutella tastes even better than the real thing, but that’s simply not possible. The homemade version is something different. Also supremely tasty, with a strong hazelnut and deep chocolate flavours with a hint of sweetness from honey. Maybe it’s the more grown up verson…either way it tastes amazing, it’s just not going to replace your trusty jar in the cupboard. Think of it as an alternative. Two types of chocolate hazelnut spread certainly can’t be a bad thing! (more…)
