I ♥ Nutella

So, yesterday a friend and I went to lunch at this place called Blue Café. They have the best Spinach and Prosciutto pizza. So, after eating the waitress asks us if we want dessert and goes over what they have, she mentioned Nutella Crepes and I made the comment I’ve never had Nutella…well that’s where it went downhill. The sweet waitress brought me over a spoon with a mound of Nutella on it, I looked at it and thought oh Chocolate…boy was I was wrong. Nutella is hazelnut crack!!

( I fear this will be me by the weekend!!!)

My friend started laughing at me and made the comment, “ You must have been living under a rock, if you have never tried Nutella”. Well I will openly admit know, I have been living a life of gray and darkness and this wonderful creation Nutella has brought me into the light. OMG….where has this stuff been all my life. After leaving the café we walked to our little corner store, and low and behold they had little mini packets of Nutella, so I snatched up a bunch of them and then something else caught my eye. A piece of candy called a Happy Hippo, so I grabbed 2 of those also.

Later that night after dinner I remembered they were in my purse and I was dying to try them. Oh My Hello Kitty, I have no words to explain the AWESOMENESS of this candy!! The candy is a crispy wafer that has a cocoa and milk creme paste inside and the bottom of the wafer is dipped in a frosting/meringue mixture and is crumbly...its just freaking YUM-O!!
At this point I started to panic because I only had two and I knew at any moment the BF was going to ask for a bite, well my inner Gollum came out and I found myself holding on to my “Precious”.


Well being the lady I am I went ahead and shared my wonderful find, but I did do the finger bite…(you know where you place your fingers at the stopping point of their bite…LOL) So, now that I am a full blown Nutella and Happy Hippo addict I had to find someway to get my fix…and thank you all mighty Amazon!!! I should expect my shipment any day now. YAY!!

I've also come across a ton of recipes using Nutella, so I feel like a whole new world has opened up for me! My first order of business will be to try these cookies. Its the little things that make me Happy!!
