Time for another confession: I'm harboring a full-blown addiction to anything Nutella or nut butter-related. Think I'm joking? When left to my own devices, I've been known to down an entire tub of the unctuous spread in the span of a week. Now, rather than lament my (no longer) secret shame, I've chosen instead to be proactive and make my own, so at the very least I'm enjoying the treat to its fullest, rather than supping on the saccharine mass-manufactured spread once more.
I have plentiful plans for my little jar of heaven, which is salty-sweet and perfumed with the seductive scent of roasted almonds. First off, half the batch will be given to lucky friends (for the sake of my sanity and waistline), then the rest will be devoured without abandon, spread on toast and crackers (bonus points for toast topped with sliced banana), rolled into crepes, spread atop pizza crust, and last but not least, shoveled from spoon to mouth (and repeated ad nauseam).
