I found this on a new blog, College Grubin’, courtesy of comment stalking Rischmöller Real Estate blog. 🙂 I am always looking for ways to jazz up my oatmeal, as it gets a little monotonous after a while of just having it with honey or some sliced fruit. I really can’t believe I had never thought to try this, as I just can’t get enough of nutella. But honestly, if you love the Ferrero Rocher candies, how could you not love an entire jar filled with that creamy, chocolaty, hazlenutty center?!
And who knows if this deliciousness would have been created were it not for WWII! According to nutellausa.com, Nutella was created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, there was very little chocolate because cocoa was in short supply due to World War II rationing. In order to make the chocolate last, he started using hazelnuts, which are plentiful in the Piedmont region of Italy (northwest), to extend the chocolate supply. Ingenious!
Now that you know a little bit more about one of my favorite spreads, lets get down to business on this recipe, if you can call it that. All you need to do is make your oatmeal as you normally would, and once it has cooked, grab your jar of Nutella, and dig out a spoonful and mix it into your oatmeal. Voila!
Try this! You will love me even more than you already do.
