I love a great chocolate dessert that can come together in 2 minutes or less. Like these nutella crunch bars, for example. It is a bit like making chocolate bark, except the result is a thicker bar, more like a candy bar. These are particularly good for summer treats when you don’t want to turn on the oven. And, since they contain chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows, they can double as a s’more when a campfire is unavailable. To give mine a new twist I added a big swirl of nutella to the chocolate. I am thinking of adding chopped hazelnuts next time, too.
S’More Nutella Crunch Bars
1 stick unsalted butter
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, broken into pieces
3 tablespoons nutella
¼ cup light corn syrup
4 graham crackers, crushed into small pieces
2 cups mini-marshmallows
Melt the butter, chocolate, nutella and corn syrup together in a heavy bottom saucepan. Swirl in the mini-marshmallows and graham crackers. Spread the mixture in a 9×9 pan and smooth the top. Place the pan in the freezer until it is completely solid. Cut into small squares and serve.
