Recipe: Single Serving Nutella S’More

single serving nutella s'more This isn’t much of a recipe, because it’s only three ingredients and I made none of them. But Nutella is always a good place to start.

It is a recipe, if you believe that a recipe can have cake mix as an ingredient. Which I do not. But let’s just go with it for now.

If like me, you have some random graham crackers, marshmallows and Nutella, then you can make assemble this single serving snack.

It’s rather precarious and gooey. Will probably crumble apart and you’ll need to lick your fingers. But it is just one serving and you’ll be making it in the privacy of your own home, so who’s gonna judge you?

To soften up this caramel covered marshmallow, I punctured it with a wooden kabob skewer and rotated it over the flame on top of my gas stove. Some parts caught fire and got singed. No worries.

I plopped it on a graham cracker. Slathered Nutella on top. Then I ate it. Maybe it’s not a recipe, but it was fun.

Have a good weekend!

Whatever Happened With Nutella’s Class Action Lawsuit Settlement?

Nutella Class Action Settlement CheckBack in 2012, I wrote about Nutella’s consumer class action settlement. I ended up filing a claim and figured I’d get a check for a few dollars in a few years.

Well, that sweet day arrived yesterday. I received a whole $4.29! If you filed a claim, you’ll probably be getting a settlement check soon as well. Case closed.

Recipe: Nutella Banana Muffins

Nutella Banana Muffins

A lot has changed since I first baked these muffins back in 2008. I had only been blogging for two years and had never eaten Nutella. Imagine that??!!

Now I’m much more confident in my baking skills and never run out of Nutella. It’s a staple — like sugar, flour, eggs and salt. Because you never know when you’ll need to bake right? Or eat a spoonful, just because.

I’ve finally gotten around to adapting the recipe to better suit my taste and hopefully yours too.

By the way, the horrible Nutella shortage scare that was being talked about recently appears not to be true after all. Thank goodness!

According to a statement by Ferrero USA, “Inclement weather last spring in Turkey has impacted this year’s hazelnut harvest. We are tracking this issue closely and there’s no foreseeable impact on the availability of Nutella. As always, we will maintain the high quality of the Nutella product that consumers know and love.” 

Remember, World Nutella Day is February 5th and we have to make sure that we don’t run out!

By the way, have you heard that an all-Nutella restaurant called Nutelleria is planning to open in Brooklyn? Hopefully they are getting some sort of permission from Ferrero and can manage to stay out of legal hot water. Time will tell. But for now, here’s the updated muffin recipe.

Nutella Banana Muffins
(Makes a dozen)


  • 1/4 cup softened butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour


In medium bowl, combine butter, banana, Nutella, and egg. Stir in salt, vanilla extract and baking powder. Add flour and coconut milk alternately until just combined.

Use a regular sized muffin pan with paper liners or prepare by using butter and flour to coat the pan. Pour the batter into the muffin pan and bake for 25 – 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Insert a toothpick, which should come out clean if it’s done. Let cool for a few minutes. Then eat and enjoy! I keep my muffins in the refrigerator and sometimes heat them back up in the microwave for that freshly baked feeling.
