Who ever invented Nutella I think deserves a Nobel Prize. I usually make this recipe with bananas but strawberries is a good substitution.
- 6 slices French bread
- 1⁄2 cup nutella
- 3 tablespoons hazelnuts, chopped
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 bananas, sliced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- dark chocolate curls
- white chocolate curls
- Toast bread just a little bit. Spread them with Nutella.
- Combine nuts and sugar.
- Layer bananas on top of Nutella.
- Brush bananas with melted butter and top with sugar nut mix.
- Broil for 30 seconds.
- Garnish with cocoa powder and chocolate curls.
Super yummy! The cocoa powder lends a definite bittersweetness to it. I broiled these 3-4 minutes for the brown sugar to melt. Cinnamon would probably be really good with them too. Have a big napkin ready while eating these!
I don't like bananas so personally I can't comment, will have to make with strawberries next time. But my brother said he was dropping by after work and I wanted something quick for a naughty snack for them, they are both nutella lovers. Well judging by the fact everytime I asked them " So what do you think". All I got in response was MMmmmmm all the way until they were gone I'd say pretty darn good. Then I did get an "awesome" from my son until I told him he had to give the last one to my hubby. Who thought it was delicious although he said "You could get extremely fat off of those as they are so morish". Made as stated except I didn't have chocolate curls so used chocolate sprinkles. I also made one mistake in that, I bought the thinner french loaf instead of the fat one, but no biggy I know for next time. Because there will definately be a next time, if my son had his way I would be back in the kitchen making more right now. thanks for posting.
OH MY!!! MsPia, you are a bad, bad, bad girl! These are SINFULLY good...and much too easy to make, which means I will be making them again and again. I agree with you, the inventer of Nutella is awesome. I made these exactly as written and they were to die for. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for posting this. I can't believe that this dessert has been undiscovered so far. Reviewed for PAC-Fall07
