Day 44 with Nutella

It's been awhile since my last post...It's almost like I had to take the summer off.  While on my hiatus I was still dreaming of Nutella.  A friend of mine sent me a link to a recipe for Nutella Puppy Chow recipe and of course I was intrigued.  Nutella for dogs?  Surely not...  Turns out it's for humans, it just looks like it's for the dog...while not the most attractive thing I have ever made, it sure is delicious and is very popular with the kiddos....they all crack up about eating dog food. 

Here's a picture of my Nutella Puppy Chow
 



Like I said, it looks a bit like dog food...hence the name but, wait until you taste it.  You can't stop eating it.  Yummy deilish and pretty easy to make.









Nutella Puppy Chow Recipe ( my adapted version)

Ingredients:


• 1/2 cup butter

• 1 cup Nutella

• 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (use semi-sweet)

• 2 cups Pecans

• 12 oz box of  RiceChex
• 3 -4 cups powdered sugar

Method:

• In a 350 degree preheated oven, roast pecans until fragrant and light brown, about 10 minutes.  Let them cool and then grind finely in a food processor.

• Put the cereal in a large bowl

• On a pan over medium-low heat, melt butter and chocolate chips stirring constantly - I use a double boiler so I don't scorch the chocolate

• When all is melted, remove from heat and add Nutella and stir until mixed in, then add pecans and stir well.

• Slowly pour over cereal and stir with your hands! It’s much easier than with a spoon.
• Add about half the mixture to a gallon sized plastic ziploc bag, add the about 1 cup of powdered sugar and shake. you can always add more powdered sugar.  You want it to coated to the point of it being light brown.

After it's all coated, I put the mixture on a cookie sheet for about 20 mins to let it cool more.  The put it in a bowl and serve.  It won't last long!
