Nutella Peanut Butter Bar/Fudge or I dream of nutella

What do you do when you realize you have guest coming over and JUST enough food to feed everyone? In my family… you make much more food.

So I frantically searched online for something that was easy to do, with ingredients in the pantry, and a potential crowd pleaser. I found these from Fresh and Foodie which I then changed it up a bit to reflect what I had in the kitchen. Please check out the original recipe to see their verison.

This is a no bake recipe, one pot and pan. Cleanup is minimal if you line your pan with parchment paper. Sounds easy right?

Grab some peanut butter, melted butter, icing sugar, graeme crackers, dump and mix. I used smooth peanut butter, but I would be tempted to use a nutty verision to give the bottom layer a bit more bite.

Next layer the peanut butter mixture in your lined pan. I used a square pan. Not the most attractive, I know! But next comes the nutella chocolate!

Melt the chocolate chips with the nutella until it is slightly melted. Try not to make it boiling hot or it may be hot for the bottom layer to handle.

Now spread the chocolate on top, trying to neat, balanced and all that jazz.

If you are like me and smear chocolate everywhere except on top the peanut butter its okay! You’re just going to cut it up and make it look pretty anyways.

See? All better 😀 happy eating
