Ok, ok..OK! I know, I know. It’s been a while. No worries though, I am back. At first it was Ramathan and it was draining me from of energy and life. Simply not being able to snack during the day really made me into a useless couch potato, and that laziness stuck with me even after Ramathan ended. Ramathan was the hardest it’s ever been for me this year, the super long days combined with the sticky hot NYC weather … just to get up in the mornings was a lot of work. The Husband was such a trooper throughout the whole month, his sanity kept me slightly less insane…kudos to him!
Once Ramathan was over we were busy preparing to move, then we moved. Then we found ourselves helping my brother move two states over. Then we had a house guest, then family crashing with us. Long story short, I have a lot of excuses but deep down I know I could have updated amongst all of that and for that I am sorry. I’m back though! So let the adventures continue!
If you are looking for something awesome to make, try these Nutella Tootsie Rolls. I have yet to make them but they look promising. I’ve had this link sitting in my tabs for a while, every time I go to do it I pull back simply because I feel this is something that would be more fun if I do with with someone. So until I plan a candy making date this recipe is being archived.
I love Nutella. It’s like chocolate and peanut-butter got together and gave birth to a heavenly and beautiful hazelnut spread. How can anyone dislike Nutella? If not love, you have to at least like the stuff. It’s a perfect sweet accent for pancakes, toast, french toast, bananas, milkshakes, your spoon, fingers… it’s all good, no judgements here on how you eat the stuff!
Cookies are also a way to eat Nutella. Like if you were to make cookie dough and stuff it with some Nutella before putting it in the oven. Then when you take it out eating it while it’s still warm and let the Nutella ooz into your mouth. Maybe some ice-cream on the side. Yum. I can’t wait till we have dessert tonight.
Nutella stuffed cookies, or Nutella Lava Cookies, was my project for today. I had made them once before at a friends house and I woke up this morning wanting some. It turned out a little different today, I forgot to put chocolate chips into my cookies and I didn’t use ready made coco power, instead I ground up half a chocolate bar. The two together might be why my cookies turned out so light, still they taste pretty good. They aren’t too sweet making it perfect to have with some tea, milk or ice-cream.
