OK...I admit it...I'm addicted to Nutella!

Looking for a fun dessert to serve at our Mother's Day brunch, I found this recipe on, a Canadian food blog...

Nutella Crumb Bars:

In a bowl toss together
2 t. baking powder
2 cups rolled oats (large)
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar

Using your hands, rub thoroughly through the dry ingredients:

1 ½ cups butter, cut in small cubes.

This mixture should hold together when squeezed in your fist.

Divide crumble mixture in half and press half into the bottom of a 9x13 inch greased or parchment lined baking pan. Spread fudge filling mixture over the base. Top with remaining crumb mixture, breaking it into small pieces with your fingers. Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees F or until golden brown.

Nutella Fudge Filling

In a double boiler melt together until smooth:

1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup whipping cream (or evaporated milk)
1 cup Nutella

Don't let this mixture get too hot, as soon as the chocolate is melted, take it off the heat. Add

1 cup icing sugar ( i.e. powdered sugar, confectioners sugar)

Blend in until smooth,

It's crunchy nutella heaven!! What's your food addiction?
