When I lived in Germany back in the mid-1990s, a hazelnut spread called Nutella was all the rage. It wasn’t unheard of in the United States, but it certainly wasn’t as mainstream as it is now.
There would be pastries filled with Nutella. You’d eat Nutella on toast or as a sandwich (They would. I never went that far). Nutella was everywhere, which makes sense as it has European origins, Italian to be exact. Nutella hazelnut spread was first imported from Italy to the U.S. over 25 years ago by Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. Think of those decadent gold-wrapped orbs of chocolately goodness. (Ferrero Rocher, anyone?)
Nutella is simply a combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a tiny bit of cocoa. Many mistake it for a chocolate spread, but the richness of the hazelnuts makes it seem that way.
Try Nutella for your s’mores next time you make them! Substitute Nutella for the chocolate bar and enjoy a rich, gooey treat.
