After lunch I beetled into the kitchen with my Nutella recipe books! Please note the plural!
Yes, I do have two Nutella recipe books, how many do you have?
I had bought these in France in the summer, after a quick perusal I opted for the Nutella Madeleines! Now they were supposed to be mini, but I only have standard Madeleine tins, so bigger they would have to be!
I followed the recipe, which included "2 grosses cuillerees a soupe de Nutella," which I interpreted as 2 huge dessert spoonfuls of Nutella. Usually I butter and flour my madeleine tins, but to add to the chocolatey taste, I buttered and cocoaed them!
They were scrumptious, and my little girl had them as a tea time treat, with a lovely mug of hot chocolate, and a rather decadent teaspoonful of nutella to stir into her hot chocolate! Fantastic!
I think these would make a fabulous, delectable treat for your loved one(s) on St Valentine's Day, so will be entering them into the Fabulously Romantic Teatime Treat event, run by those Lovely Ladies, Karen (at Lavender and Lovage) and Kate (at What Kate Bakes). It is being hosted by Kate this month.
