Love comes in many forms. A gentle kiss. A warm embrace. A large tub of Nutella accompanied by an obnoxiously large spoon. Most of you will understand what I mean. The individuals that don’t relate just haven’t been graced by Nutella yet. I understand that there are unfortunate souls out there that are allergic to nuts, my heart goes out to them.
*moment of silence for their loss*
Side Note: I don’t advise this but if I were allergic I would still be found with Nutella in one hand and an EpiPen in another. Just saying.
I’m not the only one crazy about this stuff. In 2015, a jar of Nutella was sold every 2.5 seconds. Nutella even has its own holiday! YES! That’s right…today, February 5th, is Nutella Day!!!
In celebration of Nutella Day I made Nutella Soufflés. Soufflé sounds decadent doesn’t it? It means “to breath” in French. Ironic because this dessert is breathtaking. You have a crunchy top followed by a melt in your mouth center. It’s like eating a crispy chocolaty cloud. So so so delicious.
If you haven’t had Nutella or a Souffle then you are missing out on two of life’s greatest pleasures. The good news is, you probably have all the ingredients you need to make this easy treat. A few ingredients and a bit of courage is all you need.
I put off making Soufflés for years thinking that it was best left to fancy chefs with the tall white hats. I thought it was a top tier, master chef, upscale restaurant kind of recipe. It’s not. It just looks and tastes like it does. The woman I made this for thinks I am an “amazingly talented chef destined for culinary greatness”….hahaha, I’m going to let her keep thinking that. After all, this recipe is the best way I know to get “brownie points.” Don’t wait like I did, I really hope you make these soon, they are sooooo worth it!
Note to Pim (My GF): Hey babe, if you are reading this, please ignore that last paragraph. Ok, love you, bye.
