Nutella Rice Krispie Treats with Hazelnuts

I do not object to such a celebration! There are so many ways to enjoy Nutella, it seems only fair to have a day to celebrate it’s tastiness. I’ve even used it as war paint/makeup while in Italy with friends – yea, I’m not even gonna try to explain that…

Nutella Rice Krispie Treats with Chocolate Topping

Nutella truly is a wonderful thing. One quick Google search will bring up tons of recipes that incorporate this treat, and after today there will be even more. I decided to bust out an oldie for the occasion, rice krispie treats.

Seriously, who doesn’t love a good rice krispie treat?

Oh man did I forget how sticky and messy these things are to make. You really need to butter every utensil and bowl you plan on using. But it’s well worth it, especially since it’s topped with Nutella.

And extra hazelnuts.

And chocolate O:-).

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

2 cups Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

4 oz. toasted hazelnuts, chopped
