Nutella Rice Krispy Treats

I hadn't met nutella before this fall. My friend, Lisa, kept raving about it. She very persistently convinced me to try it. HOLY WOW! It's like how you wonder what you ever did without a cell phone. That's how I feel about life before nutella.

Last weekend was play date time again (slumber party style) and since the girls love the stuff too (Katie's always tell me, "Momma, stop eating MY chocolate!), we made them Nutella Rice Krispie treats and there was nothing to it!


3 Tbsp butter
bag of marshmallows
1/2 cup nutella
6 cups cocoa krispy rice cereal

Melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted, then add nutella. Stir in the cereal until completely coated. Press into a greased 9x12 pan. Lick the spoon while the treats cool enough for the children.

Lisa and I had chicken and avocado soup for dinner. Not wanting to let the girls enjoy all the nutella, we made ourselves nutella donuts for dessert! (If you don't own a donut pan, you should!)

Since we'd both just finished reading The Help, we watched the movie. It wasn't nearly as good but still worth watching. We also got started on stuff for Valentine's Day, making these heart shaped crayons! Thank you pinterest!

The girls spent a lot of time dressed as disney princesses!

For breakfast, we made cake batter pancakes. Totally delicious and very easily made gluten free!

This weekend, Beauty and Beast will be in theaters again and we're taking the girls. They both have Belle dresses to wear. It's going to be so much fun!
