I am feeling slightly bereft as we speak. We are a man down at home as George has gone on a GCSE Drama trip to New York *lucky lucky boy* and Ben has just gone back to uni having popped home for the weekend to eat, drink and go out on the lash. So, it’s just Clyde, Ted and I for the next couple of days and it feels strange. No Sunday night nagging to finish homework/bath/pack school bags/stop playing Fortnight, I could go on. It feels peaceful, but a little strange. Half term is usually a time for a houseful of people and an empty fridge; but not this week. Hooray for it being just me and a large slab of Salted Nutella Krispie Square.
While I have a bit of free time on my hands the last thing I want to be doing is forking up elaborate dishes. Clyde and I will happily eat cheese and biscuits when left to our own devices, but there’s always time for something sweet. Which is where these genius 3 ingredient Salted Nutella Krispie Squares step up. When I tested this recipe *ate 75% of it all myself* I couldn’t quite believe such a simple recipe could be so delicious. But let me reassure you, it is. This is simply a great big dollop of Nutella mixed with rice cereal then pressed into a tin and sprinkled with sea salt flakes. This, in itself, doesn’t scream amazing, but I can assure you, having sampled a good deal of this recipe, it certainly is. The salt compliments the chocolate nuttiness and the cereal is crisp and crunchy. I am eternally grateful to the Food Fanatic for the heads up on this recipe even though my thighs won’t be.
It’s not fair the children get a week off school while you still have to go to work, so give yourself a week off from the kitchen. These Salted Nutella Squares take minutes to make and you can spend the rest of the day eating/sharing them. I would recommend more of the eating and less of the sharing.
This recipe will feature on Lucy Loves later this week.
