I just love nutella. Each time when we buy that it gets over in a day. I was kind of addicted to it. But i try not to feed maha nutella, after reading lots of articles about it..Now we have stopped buying it, instead i make similar spread at home. I have already shared a version of nutella made using peanuts and chocolate chips. This one is made using cocoa powder which many viewers asked for. And it was delicious.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
