Alright, no more of this Little Miss Innocent act. I know exactly what I’m doing here. I know that this could cause a Nutella crisis the likes of which puts the pumpkin shortage to shame. I know this, and I don’t care. I have to tell the world… I have to shout it from the rooftops!!! I don’t pretend to think that I’m the one who came up with this idea, although I didn’t consult any other recipes to make it. I like to think that by posting it I’ll be responsible for introducing world peace via breakfast.

Nobel Peace Prize here I come! The best part of all is that the ingredient list is tiny, the flavor is huge, and the repercussions are monstrous. Just think about it.

Slow-Cooker Bacon Jam. Homemade Nutella. I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited!

So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give?

When the nuts are ready put them on a tray or a magazine and let them cool down a little. When you're done with this, start bringing water to a boil. Recipe: Homemade Nutella | Le voyage créatif. There’s still some left of the weekend, right? My intention was to have this up in time for the weekend, but instead it’s now just in time for the week, which is maybe even better. Why? Well, because you can now make the Nutella in what’s left of this weeken, and have some of this deliciousness left to “spice up” the upcoming week! It’s been a whirlwind of a week. This weekend went by with the snap of two fingers. It’s been great spending last weekend was doing a photo-shoot on a stunning island with breathtaking landscape. The island is a part of a group of 400 islands located on the border to Sweden, about one hour from my little island.

The wind was cold, but the sun was up and hours were spent outside meandering in the beautiful landscape. Now, onto the heart of the matter. Let’s face it I’m a chocolate fiend, and when my beautiful Norwegian friend, that I visited in Milano last month, tells me that Nutella is sooo easy to make, I perked up a bit over breakfast. (De-shelling) What you need: Untitled. Peanut Butter Eggs. I may have lost my mind with all of this chocolate peanut butter business lately, but I haven’t forgotten that it’s almost Easter.

And what better way to celebrate than with chocolate (and peanut butter)? See! I do know what’s going on! Tell John, he’s concerned… After making the Peanut Buter M&Ms last week (by the way, a MUST try) I couldn’t resist testing a recipe for peanut butter eggs. Growing up my sister and I always had candy on hand during Easter, making it one of the holidays most prone to sugar highs. (Thanks Ma!) However, I’d like to think I’ve turned a new leaf and no longer indulge in “cheap candy.” These eggs are so luxurious and the perfect way to celebrate Easter (or unwind after a long, stressful day like some of us *ahem* do). Guess it’s off to make some more! Peanut Butter Eggs Simple, vegan, gluten free peanut butter eggs with just 5 ingredients and ALL the taste of the original.
