A midnight snack

5 Aug

Okay, so the kids are asleep, finally, and now I am craving something sweet! It’s too late to make cookies, cakes, brownies, or any of the pointers that Yvette suggests in this post. I went to the pantry and find my trusty jar of…. Nutella! I love Nutella! Usually, I grab a spoon and dig in. I was feeling adventurous so I decided to raid the refrigerator and pantry for possible Nutella pairings and this is what I came up with:

Apple- I feel like Nutella is the new caramel dip! I am no nutritionist, but Nutella has to be better for you than caramel dip! This snack was crisp and delicious.

Orange- I tried this because I’ve had that orange sliced chocolate before and thought it may be close. Clearly I was wrong! The orange was way too juicy and the Nutella was not a good combination as far as texture goes.

Club Crackers- This was a very yummy pairing! I love the combination of sweet and salty always, remember this post?

Yogurt Rice Cake- The rice cake is a good idea for Nutella spread. I suggest a plain rice cake, I tried it out with a yogurt and berries flavored rice cake and it wasn’t a good match.

Ginger Snaps- I must say that the ginger snaps I had are the kind from Sprouts. These particular cookies have a VERY distinct ginger taste. I love them with coffee, but not with Nutella. The ginger was too overpowering. I would definitely try nutella and vanilla wafers though!

Raspberries- This pairing was my favorite of all! Try it an you’ll see, it’s the new chocolate covered strawberry!

What are your favorite midnight snack suggestions? What have you paired Nutella with lately?
