Now that Nutella's gone mainstream, we're liberated to enjoy it in ways other than straight-up. And we're (obviously) not the only ones. When we were in PEI last month, we picked up an assortment of yummies from the Charlottetown farmers' market, including a Nutella-spiked rice krispie treat. It was pretty epic, so the kiddies and I decided to recreate a batch to send to Mercina. I'd give our efforts two big chocolate-hazelnut-covered thumbs up.

Nutella Rice Krispie Treats
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows, plus a generous handfull
- 6 cups rice krispies
If I weren't popping these in the mail in August, I'd probably have made a Nutella ganache to go on top. And if I did that, I'd probably have covered said ganache with a generous sprinkle of chopped, roasted hazelnuts. But the truth is they're pretty awesome without any of that fuss.
