What is your favorite summer treat? Mine would have to be s’mores. They are just so gooey and irresistible. Here is a new version of s’mores for the perfect summer evening snack if you don’t want to start a fire and do all of the work!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 count)
  • ¼ cup Nutella
  • 64 mini marshmallows
  • 40 chocolate chops
  • 2 graham crackers

Unroll the crescent rolls into triangles. Top each with 1 teaspoon of Nutella, 8 marshmallows, 5 chocolate chips, and ¼ of a graham cracker. Carefully roll the dough into a crescent shape, starting at the wide end and working your way to the end. Bake them at 375 for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Grab a glass of milk and enjoy!

Is there anything better than a hot cup of hot chocolate on a chilly winter day? I think I found it…Nutella hot chocolate! Imagine the creamy, chocolaty goodness of Nutella in hot liquid form. Mouth = watering. Here is how to make yourself a batch. Excuse me while I do so myself!

Ingredients:c302426a06739b278f01cfda3d1eaa96

  • 4 cups skim milk
  • 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar

This recipe is so easy, even my dogs could make it. Heat the milk in a medium saucepan on medium/high heat until it begins to warm and steam. Add the Nutella, sugar, and cocoa powder, then whisk until it is well combined and dissolved. Simmer it, stir it, then take it off of the heat. Pour yourself a glass, let it cool, and then top with your choice of toppings! My favorite is marshmallows and chocolate chips.

This is a great sleepover food, am I right? Or a great Christmas movie-watching treat.

Eat up 🙂

XOXO, Chels

Popsicles are my favorite summer snack.  Whether you want sweet, fruity, or chocolatey, you can find a popsicle to satisfy your craving!  I’ve came across a few mouthwatering recipes that look absolutely delicious that I wanted to share with all of my fellow popsicle lovers!

  1. Tutti-Frutti Ice Pops.  For these you’ll need: a ½ cup of sliced strawberries, a ½ cup of sliced peaches, a ½ cup of blueberries, 2 sliced kiwis, and 1½ cups of coconut water.  You’ll need six ½-cup popsicle molds to divide your fruit among evenly.  Pour in the coconut water, place in popsicle sticks, and freeze your pops for 5+ hours. Chelsea Crockett - Nutella Pops Then enjoy!
  2. Sweet Tea Pops.  This may be the simplest treat to make.  All you need is to purchase your favorite sweet tea (mine is Gold Peak!) or make your own.  Then pour it into the molds, set popsicle sticks in, and set them in the freezer for a few hours!  So simple yet so delicious!
  3. Nutella Cool Whip Popsicles.  All you need for these is: a ¼ cup of Nutella, 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of cool whip.  Combine the milk and cool whip together in a mixer then whisk in the Nutella.  Pour them into the mold, place in the popsicle sticks, and freeze for 6-10 hours!

Side note: If you’re having trouble getting the popsicles out of the mold, run cool water over the frozen popsicles or run warm water over the back of the mold.  Both should help your pops slide out much easier!

Which one do you want to try for yourself?  Let me know below!

Enjoy! – Chels

Here is how to make tasty Nutella grape bites that are perfect for school lunches, snacks, and even great to take to friend’s houses! The best part is…they only take 5 minutes to make!!

Although summer is coming to a close that doesn’t mean that the warm weather is done with its smothering assault on us. It stays warm where I live wellll into September, so I am going to take advantage of it as long as I can, and that means whipping up sweet cold treats. Here is one of my fav cold recipes: Nutella fudgesicles! Fudgesicles are fudge popsicles. Here is how to whip yourself up a batch!

Ingredients:red-nutella-pop_250

  • 1 ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • ¼ cup & 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coca powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Put the milk and corn starch in a saucepan and stir until the starch is dissolved. Place the mixture over medium heat and add the Nutella and cocoa powder. Stir it frequently so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Heat it for about 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens and then take it off of the heat. Stir in the vanilla and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes while stirring frequently. Once it has cooled pour the mixture into the molds and freeze it for 6 hours or more. When you are ready to devour them, hold the mold under warm water to help the fudsicles come loose.

These sound like heaven! Woud YOU try these fudgy pops?

XOXO, Chels

Nutella and peanut butter: the world’s best combination now in cookie form! When I heard about these cookies I knew I had to try them for myself. Thank goodness I did! They are delicious and all my friends looooove them. Here is how to make these chocolatey bits of joy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 -3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon saltdownload
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set it aside. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter and both sugars. Beat on medium speed for about 5 minutes, until it is creamy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to. Turn the mixer down to low speed and then slowly add the dry ingredients. Beat until just combined. Use a large wooden spoon to gently stir in the Nutella. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Measure out a tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on each and bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for about 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

These sound like the perfect late night munchy, or a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth!

I bet when you think of sushi chopsticks, rice, and raw fish come to mind. Well, for this interesting after-school snack, bananas and Nutella are our sushi ingredients! Here is how to make your very own Nutella and banana sushi!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bananabanana sushi
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • Nutella

I like making this sweet “sushi” in the morning before school because it is a quick and easy breakfast option! Lay your tortilla out flat and spread Nutella all over it. If you want to add some extra flavor and protein, you can add in some peanut butter too! Once you have spread your yummy Nutella over the tortilla, place a peeled banana in the center. Roll the banana up in the tortilla. The Nutella should help the tortilla stick to itself and keep it from coming un-rolled. Slice the wrapped banana into sections and then gobble it up!

So what do you think? Do you like my new spin on sushi?

XOXO, Chels

During the winter months, there is nothing tastier than a warm breakfast! Today I am going to teach you how to make a totally mouth-watering breakfast perfect for any winter morning! Introducing, French toast roll-ups!

Ingredients:

-8 slices white sandwich bread

– Softened cream cheese, diced strawberries, or Nutella

– 2 eggs

– 3 tablespoons milk

Nutella is the best invention on the planet. It is chocolaty goodness! I found this recipe for homemade Nutella that is to die for. Read on, chocolate lovers!

Ingredients:

-1 cup hazelnuts

-12 ounces milk chocolate chips (melted in the microwave)

– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

– 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

-1 teaspoon vanilla extract

-1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat your oven to 350. Lay the hazelnuts on a cookie sheet and toast them for about 14 minutes. You will need to take the skins off of the nuts and toasting them helps the skins come off. Place the nuts into a towel and rub them until the skins come off. Let the nuts cool.IMG_5979

2. In a food processor, blend the nuts until the consistency is smooth. Add all of the ingredients except for the melted chocolate and blend everything together.  Add the melted chocolate and blend the mixture together. It will be a little hot and runny but it will firm up once you let it cool.

 Put the Nutella into a jar to store it. This recipe makes about 2 cups. Enjoy your homemade chocolaty goodness!

XOXO, Chels
