Thermomix Nutella & Peanut Butter
After reading Lorraine’s post on homemade Nutella, I remembered I still hadn’t made it using my Thermomix. I kept saying it would be the first thing I would make, but I secretely didn’t want to because I knew I’d eat the whole batch in one sitting.
Lorraine’s post about her friend having an awful date, then going back home to no chocolate in the house, and cracking open the Nutella jar seemed like an all too familar story to most of us. When it doubt, open the Nutella jar. I haven’t had Nutella for a little while as Costco hasn’t had any in stock. So I thought it was about time I made my own!
Nutella in 6 minutes, peanut butter in 30 seconds… I need never leave the house again! I even made a jar of half and half, because, lets face it, if you haven’t tried peanut butter and Nutella together you are missing out on something beautiful.
I usually like my peanut butter chunky, so I’ll be blending it for less next time, or adding chunking bits in at the end.
Next Nutella recipe I want to try is from Quirky Jo’s blog : http://quirkycooking.blogspot.com.au/2009/10/chocolate-hazelnut-spread-dairy-free.html
