Frozen Nutella Hot Chocolate

DSC_1408

If there is Nutella in my house it doesn’t seem to last even a week. As you may have seen from my other posts or to just simply quote the frank’s red hot sauce lady, “I put that sh*t on everything.”   I try not to keep it in the house because every time I walk into the kitchen I seem to grab a spoonful.

I really love the taste of hot-chocolate but it tends to lose its luster when the summer months come around.  Frozen hot chocolate , if you haven’t tried it, is a funny thing.  I know the first time I tried it I was just expecting a typical chocolate milkshake… but no.  It is totally different; it tastes just like hot chocolate but an icy version.  So anyway, this week I decided to attempt my own version of frozen hot chocolate (or what I like to call a Fro-ho).  Nutella happened to be in the house and before anyone could stop me Nutella ended up in the blender.  These frozen Nutella hot chocolates makes for an amazing spur-of the moment summer treat.

Strawberry Nutella Pop-tarts

DSC_1342

This past weekend was a bit chilly and slightly gloomy.  I’ve been having a hard time trying to gauge the weather as it has been a roller coaster this whole month of April.  Our house was oddly chilly and it was lacking the warmth that normally radiates from our kitchen.  I found a great recipe for homemade pop-tarts and I was on a mission to bring the homeyness back into our home.  Pop-tarts are a pretty neat thing.  They are these little pastry-like breakfast treats with yummy gooey filling.  As the pop-tarts began to turn golden brown in the oven, and they emitted a decadent aroma, it began to feel more like home.
