So, yesterday, for the very first time in my life, I finally tried Nutella.

Wow.

This stuff is ridiculous.  Ridiculously good.  I’ve known about Nutella for a while now, and recently I’ve been seeing so many recipes on Pinterest that incorporate it so I finally decided to buy myself a jar.  It’s a little more pricey than peanut butter so I almost put it back on the shelf, thinking I’d just make some Peanut Butter cookies instead, but the desire for one particular recipe pressed me to buy that jar. I had come across a recipe for Nutella & Cream Cheese Swirled Blondies by the Cookin’ Canuck, and I knew that I just had to buy the Nutella… and the bigger sized jar, at that (I get a little too caught up in looking at the unit prices… why spend 28 cents an ounce when you can spend 26, I’m sure I’ll find a way to use it all up somehow!)

I’m so glad that I did too, because Nutella is delicious and I plan to do a lot more baking with it.

Yeah, baking.  Not spooning it out of the jar and straight into my mouth.  Cause that would just be ridiculous ;).

The first time I tried this recipe it was a little too gooey for me; I love my desserts a little on the underbaked side but the middle almost wasn’t even holding it’s form, so I made a few edits and I think it’s just right now.

Just in case you’re not yet convinced that you need to make these right now, I’ll tell you that after I tweaked the recipe a bit I brought a batch into work and I have never had so many people ask me for a recipe.  They disappeared SO fast!

Enjoy!
