Tuesday’s Cupful: Nutella Ferrero
A luxurious chocolate spread
The Mixed Stew admits to overlooking this food item. Look for Nutella in store shelves next to the jars of jams and peanut butter. Expect a smooth, nutty, and milk chocolate taste in every spoonful of this unbelievable sandwich spread that actually contains skim milk. Pietro Ferrero invented this yummy confection in Italy during WWII to extend the supply of chocolate, which was being rationed. The addition of hazelnuts provides a flavor twist that complements the sweet milk chocolate. We suggest serving this food item as dip for cookies or fresh fruits. Cooks can also make chocolatey smores with a dollop or two of this hazelnut cocoa spread.
