As a child, my favorite snack is Nutella filled Ritz. Both items were pretty expensive back where I was raised. I remember, I couldn’t have much, trying to make a 13oz jar of Nutella and 1 box of Ritz last for 6 months to a year.
Last time I had Nutella was 15 years ago. Upon browsing through Lindsey’s blog, her obsession with Nutella poked my curiosity. I mean, I’ve had Nutella on Ritz crackers but never on anything else. Let alone using it to make something entirely different. I was about to make Nutella candy bars, but the boy has eaten all of the graham crackers. So at 10pm last night, I made Lora’s chocolate Nutella peanut butter fudge and it was oh so good!
The problem with this fudge is, consuming one isn’t enough. It’s pretty hard to control myself at this point. When I was cutting them into smaller squares, I found myself “accidentally” ate 2 of them. Oh well, good thing I’ve started exercising again. 😛 The boy loves it too (he loves anything chocolate-y). He even promised me without any enforcement from me, “I’m going to brush my teeth again, Mommy”.
You can check out the recipe at Lora’s blog, Cake Duchess! I follow her recipe word by word, except that I opted out the sea salt (don’t have it) and used kosher salt instead.
I think I need to be careful, fudge could make me pudge… More pudge than I already am.
