Nutella Almond Bars

As promised, I made you Nutella Almond Bars. They happen to be semi-healthy, but you’d never know it. They taste like you’re biting into a chocolate candy bar, only better because this bar is made with my current obsession… Nutella. I. Love. It!

I happened to find it in a twofer pack at my local Costco.

Gotta love buying in bulk.

I came across it as I was walking down the peanut butter and jam isle. At first I passed it, and then recognition kicked it. I did the old swirlaroo and ran back down the isle. You see, I didn’t exactly believe what I just saw, but there it was shining in its glorious plastic wrap before me. I stood there for a brief second with my jaw to the floor taking in the beautiful sight before me.

After the initial shock, I ran up to it, hugged it, and raised it over my head in triumph. This was a really exciting moment for me, people! Two large jars of Nutella in one pack! I felt like a winner. I felt like the universe was on my side for once. Thanks for coming to Costco. Here’s your twofer pack of Nutella. People, life doesn’t get any better than this. No. Wait. It does. I totally took that twofer pack home, made myself some Nutella and almond bars, and ate them. Bam! Life just got better.

Aren’t these the cutest bars ever? And, they’re down right tasty to boot.

The bars get stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat them.

These bars are ridiculously easy to make. All you have to do is place all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth. No baking required.

Directions:

  1. Line a square 8-by-8 pan (or smaller) with parchment paper.
