Chocolate Chip Nutella Cheesecake Dip

Did you know today is World Nutella Day? I just found out yesterday and ironically I was making this sweet dip to bring to a Superbowl party. So of course I had to post this recipe today.

I have always loved Nutella. Honestly, it’s not just the Nutella brand that I love. It’s the combination of hazelnuts and chocolate mixed together to form that creamy decadent spread.

When I was in second grade, I had a friend named Laura. Her family was Italian and she always had Nutella at her house. I was extremely jealous of the Nutella sandwiches she ate while my lunch consisted of  peanut butter and jelly.

Nutella is the type of thing I can eat right out of the jar with a spoon. I may have done that before while no one was looking. But why not put it in a dessert recipe and share it with your friends or family? This  would be a great Valentine’s day dessert whether you are having a romantic dinner for two or a party with friends.

I served this creamy dip with graham crackers, strawberries and pretzels. The pretzels were my favorite because it had the sweet and salty thing going on but my kids love graham crackers. And I had to serve some fresh fruit especially since the strawberries are looking mighty fine.

The most amazing thing about this dessert is that it takes about two minutes to make. Actually, the hardest part is cleaning the strawberries and breaking the graham crackers in half. All the ingredients get blended with a mixer and it is ready. I like to chill it in the refrigerator a bit so that all the flavors blend together.  This dessert can be made in advance which is always a good thing.

Happy World Nutella Day!

Oh my goodness, I have no words! This looks to DIE for! How necessary are the graham crackers for dipping, I mean, could I just eat it with a spoon?! I’m definitely going to try this recipe!
