Nutella never touched my very picky palette until we traveled overseas. I was a devoted peanut butter fanatic with zero desire to change. Then I tried it and my world changed. I know I don’t have to tell you because I’m sure you already know, but Nutella is basically the perfect combination between chocolate and peanut butter. Now, let’s get something straight. Peanut Butter is still my homeboy, my #1 spread of choice, my I-need-a-quick-snack-with-a-spoon go to, but Nutella is no longer the enemy. Plus, it added just the perfect amount of flavor and spin to the ever classic puppy chow. Oh, dessert deliciousness.
2/3 cup Nutella
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
9 cups Rice Chex cereal
2-3 cups powdered sugar (depending on how much you like)
Melt Nutella, butter, and chocolate chips at 30 second increments (about 90-120 sec) in a microwave safe bowl until all ingredients can be mixed smooth. In a large bowl, add Rice Chex cereal and top with Nutella mixture until cereal is evenly coated. Place 1 cup of powdered sugar into a large Ziploc bag or Tupperware container, pour in coated cereal, and top with an additional cup of powdered sugar. Shake till you can’t shake no more. Add in any additional powdered sugar to your liking. Store in an airtight Tupperware container.
