Nutella and Banana Eggy Bread or Challah
If you haven’t yet tried Nutella and banana as a combination then you are missing out and need to remedy this immediately!
Chocolate and banana has always been a classic combination but the hazelnut in Nutella spread adds another dimension to the flavour. When it’s also mixed with salted almonds and toasted between some French toast or Challah, you quite simply have a match made in heaven.
We’re sure you know how to make a toastie, but you can see the ingredients needed for this beauty below. You’re welcome!
2 tbsp. salted almonds
1 large ripe banana
4 slice challah or egg bread
Calories: 295 per toastie
Nutella Rocky Road Treats
Rocky road really needs no introduction does it, but the addition of everyone’s favourite chocolate spread takes this treat to the next level. Much like any Nutella based recipe, it’s a little bit naughty but you definitely deserve it and we have listed our favourite iteration of the global classic below.
We have also added some directions below as it can be quite easy to mess this one up if you get your ordering wrong or overheat your butter, so approach with care. Get it right however, and we think this recipe will give you legendary status amongst your university flatmates.
1/4 block unsalted butter
1 bag miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Generous amounts of Cocoa Krispies cereal
1 Bag miniature marshmallows
Handful chopped toasted pecans
Pouring semisweet chocolate chips
Calories: Don’t ask!
We’ll keep it short as it’s not really rocket science, but follow these directions and your Nutella Rocky Road will go swimmingly.
Line your baking tray with non-stick foil and wrap over the edges. Then melt your butter over a medium low heat before adding all of your marshmallows and stir until almost gooey.
Add your Nutella and vanilla extract and stir until it is all completely smooth.
Pour into your pan until even and let your Nutella Rocky Road mixture cool. Add your candy floss to your cereal and scatter all of the rest over your cooling mixture to create the effect we all love and know.
Once cooled you can remove from the tray and peel off the foil to reveal your Nutella based masterpiece. If you aren’t planning on eating them all immediately, then just store in an airtight container and enjoy for days to come with your pals.
