You Win Some, You Lose Some

I’ve been pinning Nutella recipes like crazy to my Pinterest boards, because Nutella is practically the most delicious thing on the planet straight out of the jar. But baked in recipes? I’m finding it’s not so good. I’ve totally struck out with two Nutella recipes: a mug cake and cupcakes. And I hate wasting ingredients, especially heavenly ones like Nutella, so I’m thinking my experimenting with baking it is over.

I’ll stick to Nutella and apples or pretzels or just licking it off the spoon.

In other news: I recently posted this recipe for Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. They are amazing, and freeze really well, making them perfect for adding to a school lunch for a surprise for the boys now and again (I just stick a frozen one in their lunchbox and it’s great by lunchtime, they tell me)!

Today, I tried the updated recipe that Kraft posted, using two eggs. Definite no-no…made the dough a crazy sticky mess, and to me, the cookies aren’t as good. So if when you make them, stick to the recipe I posted with one egg. You won’t be sorry!

    Total bummer! I saw those recipes too and they looked so promising! Oh well, thanks for the review, it would be a shame to waste all that Nutella. I guess I’ll just stick to my nutella on the spoon too! (PS. It’s also good on graham crackers and smearing some on a banana!)
