The Salted Nutella Butter Bars are every bit as amazing as they sound!
Sometimes things are just obvious.
But you can’t really see them…I mean, until you do.
Like the fact that your sunglasses are on top of your head when you’ve been searching for them for 15 minutes.
Or your keys being in your hand while swearing you didn’t lock them in your car.
Or the fact that you are wearing 2 different shoes.
And yes, all these things happen to me pretty much on a daily basis.
Which is why it has taken me 3 years to make these bars.
They are a version of these Salted Caramel Butter Bars, which are one of my most favorite treats as well as one of my most requested.
So the obvious thing to do would be ask myself, “what other types of butter bars does the world need?”
But since “obvious” doesn’t seem to be my thing, it’s taken me 3 years.
But finally, on Friday, August 2nd, I asked myself.
And answered myself as well.
Nutella. Major duh.
So here, today, we have Salted Nutella Butter Bars.
Three years in the braining.
The dough comes together really easily! It’s great for anyone with egg allergies, because it’s basically shortbread.
If you add more than a third, it’s totally fine. Please don’t bother getting out your scale or scientifical instruments.
Put the other 2/3rds-ish in the fridge to chill.
Just leave a space at the edge of the crust so the Nutella doesn’t hit the edges. Then grab the rest of your dough out of the fridge.
And if you like stuff a little sweet/salty, sprinkle flaked sea salt all over the top.
I use THIS FLAKED SEA SALT in case you’re interested. It has lasted me forever and it’s great for sprinkling on brownies, cookies etc.
People will be totally impressed.
I mean if you care about obvious things like that
