I know, I know, February 5, 2012 is Super Bowl Sunday. If you would like some football food recipes, the good folks at Allrecipes.com have a variety of recipes, menus and party planning tips for you to check out. But, more pressing matters involving chocolate are dictating what this post is all about.
It was only a couple of months ago that I tasted Nutella for the first time. I was given a jar of the chocolate-hazelnut spread and it sat on a shelf, forgotten for weeks. Then, one evening, I wanted just a taste of “something”. You know what it’s like to want “something”. All you want and need is a taste.
Then I remembered “The Jar”.
I took a spoon, found the jar and had a taste. I will admit my first thought was “OOOHHH! MY! GAAWWD! This tastes like a melted milk chocolate bar!”
I will be generous and say the jar lasted two weeks.
It’s also the only jar I’ve ever had because I don’t need that kind of temptation in the house again. But, that doesn’t mean that there are other Nutella fans who can’t control themselves. Maybe. This day is for you.
