NUTELLA PUPPY CHOW. YUP.

Wow. People are crazy when it comes to Nutella- that stuff has a legit cult following!
While I do think it's good, I can never use it in the way the commercials suggest, like on toast in the morning- it's just too sweet for that. Thus, I decided to make good use of it by just adding even more sugar to it, and making......

What you'll need:
4 cups Crispix 
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar
1 paper grocery bag

How to make it happen:
1. Set up a double boiler to melt your chocolate chips with your Nutella. (You can try to microwave it, but just make sure not to bake the heck out of your chocolate in there or else it'll seize up). Adding the chocolate chips to the Nutella is purely to harden it up a bit so you don't have a super melty mess on your hands!
2. Dump it in with your Crispix, and stir gently. Crispix are better than Chex simple because they're stronger, so you're less likely to just have smashed pieces of puppy chow.
3. Dump half of your powdered sugar in the bowl and lightly mix, before tossing it all in the paper bag with the other half of the sugar. Why? This way you won't lose too much chocolate sticking to the sides of the bag, since it'll already have a little sugar coating!
4. Throw in the fridge, and enjoy!




Mmm-mm good, right? I brought it into work yesterday and people ate it in a heartbeat!
(not a Nutella fan? just sub the Nutella for peanut butter!)

Are you a Nutella cult member?
If so, you've got to try this!
