On Saturday morning, I woke up thinking of Nutella. This always happens when I'm trying to lose weight - I just can't shake the thought of creamy chocolate!
I leaned over in bed, nudged my sleeping husband, and asked him if he was thinking of Nutella, too. He wasn't, obviously, but he started thinking of it once I mentioned it. And we both agreed that our diets needed to go on hold for just one meal...long enough to fix our Nutella craving.
Since I'd already planned on making pancakes for breakfast, I had a brilliant idea - Nutella syrup! I rushed into the kitchen with Cookie Bandit right behind me, and we quickly threw together some of the best syrup I have ever tasted.
Oh yeah...doesn't it look pretty?
We couldn't just stop at a little...these pancakes required full coverage.
Topped with some marshmallow fluff, it was like hot chocolate on a pancake!
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 2 T. butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 t. light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 t. baking soda

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, boil all ingredients except vanilla for one minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cover and store in refrigerator. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
