Chocolate Hazelnut Spread!!

I recently came across a recipe for homemade Nutella…this is BIG news for me as I have a little bit of a love affair with the chocolate and hazelnut combo. Nutella, hedgehogs, bacio ice cream – the list continues. Any excuse to indulge in chocolate hazelnut spread is a good one, but I can now say that this little gem is a part of my regular and healthy diet! By no means is this the real thing, but it tastes dang close when you put it alongside peanut butter in a sandwich 🙂
