Today marks the 10th anniversary of World Nutella day, and if that’s not something to celebrate, I don’t know what is!
After the festive period, I vowed to cut down on sweets and make healthier choices when it comes to food. Don’t get me wrong, I think we all deserve a treat now and then, but I’m working to practice moderation. So, instead of whipping up a huge batch of cupcakes or testing out a Nutella banana bread, I’m keeping it small-scale with these simple, yet delicious, coconut Nutella bites.
These really are super easy to make, and will be ready to eat in around an hour and a half, so make them up before you cook dinner and you’ve got a lovely treat waiting for you after!
Yields 6-7 bites
You will need
- 150g Nutella
- 50g dark chocolate, cut into squares
- 2tbsp coconut cream
- A handful sweetened desiccated coconut
Pop the Nutella, dark chocolate and coconut cream in a pan altogether. Gently heat, stirring as you go until everything is well combined.
Set aside to cool (30 minutes should do it).
Portion out the mixture into tablespoons, rolling each one into a ball before rolling in the coconut.
Leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to set before serving.
Thanks for reading, until next time!
