Nutella Heaven!

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe up yet!!!  Thank goodness I had a picture of it, because my caloric intake for the day would be through the roof with this addition to the menu today.

No kidding, hands down, one of my new favorite “messy” snacks/desserts.  One of the best oh-so-gooey, sticky, crunchy, buttery, lick-your-fingers, amazing, edible creations.  You must try this if you are a fan of Nutella!  Extremely recommended.  Man, now I’m craving this fantastic, drool-inducing item….dang calorie counting….

This came from my favorite television Chef, Sunny Anderson.  She calls it “Sunny’s Fake Crepes”…I call it “Divine Invention”.  Once you get this recipe down, it is really one of the quickest and easiest treats.

Sunny’s Fake Crepes

Ingredients

 

  • 1/2 cup Nutella (ummmm, I didn’t measure.  I just slathered it on until I was satisfied.)
  • 4 (8-inch) round whole-wheat tortillas, room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter (oh yeah!…I did, however, use Brummel and Brown instead.)
  • 1 1/3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted hazelnuts (smaller the better)

Directions

  1. Spread hazelnut spread on 1 side of each tortilla.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat add 2 tablespoons of butter and let it melt until bubbly.  (I used a pan large enough to hold just one tortilla, so use just 1 tablespoon of butter for one-at-a-time preparation.)
  3. Add 2 of the tortillas with the chocolate hazelnut spread side facing up.
  4. Using an imaginary line add 1/3 cup of marshmallows down 1 half of each tortilla, making sure to keep them in a single layer.
  5. Allow the tortilla to slightly bubble on the pan and check underneath for a golden, toasted color.
  6. Fold the tortilla over to form a half circle and slightly press down to seal.
  7. Cook until marshmallows start to melt but don’t lose their shape.
  8. Transfer them to a cutting board.
  9. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  10. Meanwhile, put the chopped hazelnuts on a plate.
  11. Cut the tortillas in half, then quickly press the opened sides into the chopped hazelnuts. Serve immediately (for best gooey results).
