Like Reece's For Breakfast

You'd think that somewhere in my 60+ years of eating I'd have encountered Nutella before now but I never had so I bought a little packet of the stuff to try one day last week.

I toasted up some plain white bread, the Pain du Lait they sell at my local Santa Fe Market, and spread a little of the sweet, chocolatey, nutty spread on it. What can I say? It was sweet, chocolatey and nutty. Fine. Good. But not really world-class until I added a nice swipe of chunky style peanut butter to the mix.

Now you're talkin'!

Sweet, salt, chunky and smooth, all a the same time, with a haunting similarity to Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, just not quite so sweet. Killer for breakfast.

It's a great combination... If you want to feel self-righteously healthy... spread them on an apple slice (thickly, of course - both of them)

I never thought to eat Nutella that way. I tried it once and didn't much care for it but with peanut butter.....off to try it out. Intrepid explorer and all that stuff.

Reese's are peanuts. Nutella if I am not mistaken is hazelnuts. Just like some folks won't do snails, I can pass on a lot of nuts. My short list is peanuts, walnuts and pecans. If I am cooking with some other nut, then it's for someone else's consumption -- which is why I rarely gain weight from my holiday baking. Because I recognize that other folks love tastes that I don't.

KatieZ, apple slices, huh? Interesting idea!

Morgan, aren't you curious? I'd want to try it, just to see...

Nancy, you and me both, kiddo. Intrepid explorers.

Kailyn, Nutella is chocolate and hazelnut "butter" but I couldn't taste the hazelnuts over the chocolate. To me, it tasted mainly of very sweet milk chocolate.

Zoomie, I'll read the jar next time I see it, as for tasting it, NOPE, no way.

We await with bated breath your report about what's in the swirls.
