Ooey-gooey Nutella and Strawberry Sandwich

Posted on 22 April 2010 by Mădălina

I was about 5 when I first fell in love with Nutella. Growing up in post-communist Romania, imported foods, such as this were considered delicacies. I’m quite confident that my first reaction this chocolate treat was utter shock. It probably went a little something like this…
(translated from Romanian of course), “Wait… WHAT?!? A chocolate sandwich? You mean I can eat chocolate…as a meal? … and this is OKAY?”

When my family moved to Canada, I went through a period where I would eat Nutella straight from the jar—no bread, just spoonfuls of chocolaty goodness. I probably should mention that I highly regret doing this, as it may have been was [definitely] responsible for my weight gain in my teen years (I now advocate moderation).

I needed a little bit of comfort today; studying for my final exams has been horrible. A combination of exhaustion and lacking drive makes it extremely difficult to concentrate.

Needless to say, taking 5 minutes to enjoy this warm, strawberry Nutella sandwich was what I needed. I promise that Nutella isn’t sponsoring this post… but if they happen to read this, and have a few extra jars lying around, I’ll take them;)

Ooey-gooey Nutella and Strawberry Sandwich (glass of milk is mandatory)
- 2 slices of bread (I prefer organic spelt)
- 2 tlbs Nutella (or other hazelnut spread)
- 3-6 strawberries, washed

1. Toast bread to your liking (I like mine crispy and dark– but not burnt)

2. Slice your strawberries while the bread is toasting. You can take a few extra minutes to make them into hearts, but this is completely unnecessary.

3. Spread Nutella on your bread while it is warm, and top with sliced strawberries.

A simple and satisfying treat for when you’re running short on time and mental capacity. Enjoy.
