Nutella by Dana Banana
One time my son chatted with my brother who was in Italy, he was asked by my brother what he might want , coz' a friend of them will be visiting Manila. And guess what my son asked, a big bottle of Nutella.
Don't get me wrong, we do have Nutella here, which can be bought at some groceries or supermarkets. It just surprised me that my brother did sent us a medium sized bottle of it.
Like good peanut butters it is really best eaten on a spoon, well my kids find it fun tasting with their fingers as in fingers. We usually spread it on breads. But my daughter Dana, discovered it is eaten best with bananas, just dipping it in, oh no in the bottle. I think it works well with some other fruits like hmmm, my favorite strawberries. I still have to find out myself what other fruits would really compliment the hazel-nutty flavor of the chocolate treat.
I did use it in some of my baked goodies.
Here I used it to top my brownies instead of the usual chocolate frosting.
Before, I mixed it in a muffin batter and make Hazelnut Chocolate Marble Muffin.
I will come up with more recipes involving my kids love with this spread and will post it this link:
