I suppose I should call this "chocolate hazelnut spread," but let's cut to the chase and say "Nutella." Beloved Nutella - until now a treat for European vacations or a grocery store splurge.
But it's easy to make! I used the recipe from Angry Chicken here (I used #1, the recipe that's actually typed there, not linked to somewhere else).
Toasting the hazelnuts. . .
Of course my children think this is the bomb, yo, because we are stingy with the candy around here. In my opinion, this is a moderately healthy breakfast because the hazelnuts are nutritious, cream is surely fine for my active, skinny kids, and chocolate just makes you feel GOOD.
For a bit of balance, we did have applesauce with breakfast too. The adults had cafe au lait, the children had milk.
