What Can’t Nutella Do?

29 Feb

I know we have been holding out on you with the desserts but today is your lucky day! We literally made a mouth watering dessert that is not only amazingly easy (yes monkeys could do this) but its also a healthy dessert.

Nutella Covered Strawberries

Prep time: 5 minutes

Refrigerate time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Fresh Strawberries

1 Jar of Nutella

Directions

1. Scoop about 1 cup of Nutella out and place in a microwavable safe dish. Then microwave for about 1 minute or until melted but not burned.

2. Then one by one dip the strawberries into the melted chocolate and swirl the strawberry around while holding from the stem so the entire strawberry is covered in chocolate.

3. Place chocolate covered strawberry on wax paper. This works best if the wax paper is on a cookie or baking sheet to provide support when transporting to the refrigerator.

4. After all your strawberries are covered then place cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes or chocolate is sufficiently hard.

Then enjoy this miraculously satisfying dessert!

This dessert is also a great to make for a date night or even make it with your significant other and have fun with it! Let us know how you like it and what other desserts you like to make!

Morning Hunger Games

20 Feb

When my alarm clock goes off in the morning, my first instinct is to hit the snooze button about 5 times until I look at the clock and notice that I have about 20 minutes to get ready, pack up my backpack and eat breakfast before my first class of the day. Let me just say that I am a breakfast lady, I LOVE breakfast, it’s my jam, so I can’t leave the house without it or skip it. Lately, I’ve been trying to find something super simple to make and grub quickly, so I bought a bunch of original instant oatmeal from Walmart and decided to improvise a little. Then one morning, I brilliantly added a tablespoon of Nutella to it and the rest is history.

Prep Time: 30 seconds

Total Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients

1 package of instant oatmeal

Jar of Nutella

1 banana (not necessary, but great for additional yumminess!)

Directions:

1. Empty instant oatmeal package into a microwaveable bowl and add 2/3 cup of water to it. Put the bowl into the microwave and heat up for a minute and a half.

2. While it’s cooking chop up a banana into slices or just wait and skip the banana.

3. When the oatmeal is done, bust out that Nutella jar and get a spoonful of that chocolately-hazelnut goodness. Mix it into the oatmeal and you are all done!

Wasn’t that insanely easy & delicious? Also, that meal was only 200 calories, you can’t eat a regular bowl of cereal for less than 200 calories! I think my main goal with this meal was to make oatmeal not so boring and bland. Usually people don’t get super excited about having oatmeal for breakfast but when there is some chocolate involved it will definitely get me out of bed. Did I mention that I am addicted to chocolate? Have a good morning & get your grub on!
