Nutty for Nutella Fudge Pops

I must have been living under a rock all these years, because I didn’t discover what Nutella was until about 365 days ago.  We didn’t spread it on our toast or coat our fruit in it growing up, so I didn’t know the sweet, sweet goodness of it until I attended the U.S. Open in Flushing, New York.  Instead of the usual artery-clogging concessions, there was a crepe booth.  Crepes!  How could I deny myself a fruit-filled crepe whilst cheering on my dear Federer?  What sealed the deal, however, was the Nutella-filled sweetness that was smeared heavy-handed in my crepe.  I was pretty sure I’d reached nirvana.

If you also love the nutty stuff, I have another fab recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie to satisfy your sweet tooth with a healthy twist.  Enjoy this Nutella Fudge-cicle esque recipe that will help cool you down on the impending hot summer days. (more…)

If you haven’t heard of Chocolate Covered Katie, you’re about to.  This creative genius of a girl comes up with the most delicious recipes known to man…and they are crafted with organic ingredients. Yes, healthy desserts!  We’re talking low calorie and good for you.  The gorgeous photos on her blog alone make your mouth water, I promise you.  So many of my dessert posts cater to those who are either 1. NOT on a diet, or 2.eat sweets with reckless abandon, so I thought it might be a nice change to feature a dessert recipe that is full of nature’s good stuff and won’t derail your Lenten diet.

Check out Katie’s Strawberry Chocolate Truffle Pie.

Doesn’t this make you crazy?  The mere sight of it makes me think of savoring it during a relaxing Sunday brunch or a cool afternoon on the front porch watching the wind blow through the trees.  But I digress…

Here it is again, in all its glory.  By now, I know you’re wanting to make some for yourself, and that’s perfectly normal.  Here is the recipe, courtesy of Chocolate Covered Katie.  Indulge and don’t feel one ounce of guilt.
