Why we love homemade nutella

Listen, we can’t get enough of this homemade nutella. It has all the deliciousness of the store-bought kind, with the added bonus of no preservatives and knowing where all the ingredients are coming from! 

Nutella is a chocolate and hazelnut spread that is made by Ferrero, an Italian chocolatier. It’s perfect for toast, crepes, and even dessert pizza! If you want to really mix things up, you can add it to waffles or pancakes for a deliciously sweet breakfast.

Why we added espresso to this homemade nutella

For one, why not? It adds a little kick of caffeine and it tastes great! We love how the flavor of the espresso and it dilutes a bit of the  sweetness, and we think the flavors are absolutely incredible together. 

We hope you love this homemade Nutella with a caffeinated boost, if you do not want the caffeine don’t worry! Decaf works great or you can omit all together.
