Today we are leaving for Japan! I can’t wait to share pictures and tell you about the trip. In my absence, I have some wonderful friends who are going to take over for me. The first guest post is Roxana from Roxana’s Home Baking. Roxana does amazing things with desserts and breads, I am always in awe of her talent. Just look at these Homemade Rolo Bars, Steakhouse Bread, and Brownie Bottom Cheesecake
Hello Dinners, Dishes and Desserts readers. I’m Roxana, the wanna be baker and photographer behind Roxana’s Home Baking. My blog is focus on baking everything from scratch. I’m a self-taught baker, learning more with every cup of flour I use. Most of the recipes found on my blog rely on simple techniques everyone can master with a little bit of patience. I also have a big sweet tooth, easily noticeable through the hundreds on desserts recipes I’ve shared. I have a slight addiction to chocolate; I could put some in soup if it’s up to me.
Homemade chocolate goodies is the best medicine.
Today I’m going to share a recipe for Nutella Magic Bars. Easy to make and hard to resist.
The first time I made magic bar I was curious why they are called magic. Couple of hours later when I had my first bite I figured out why. They disappear as fast as you say “abracadabra”. They are one of the easiest treats to put together. Even the most novice baker can whip these bars in no time. The taste is out of this world good. You can’t go wrong with buttery crust topped with nutella, hazelnuts and more chocolate all baked in a pool of condensed milk until brown on top.
The fun part – you can play around with the ingredients to fit your taste buds.
The hardest part – waiting for these babies to cool before cutting them into bars
- 1½ cup graham crackers crumbs (about 11 crackers)
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter melted
- ⅓ to ½ cup Nutella
- ½ cup chopped hazelnuts
- 1 cup whole hazelnuts
- 1½ to 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 can (14 oz) condensed milk
- Heat the oven to 350. Line an 11X7 baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Place the butter and the graham crumbs in a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
- Spread the mixture evenly on the bottom of the prepared pan.
- With the help of a teaspoon drop here and there of Nutella. Optional, you can spread it all over the graham crust.
- Spread the chopped and whole hazelnuts on top of Nutella followed by the chocolate chips.
- Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the chocolate chips and bake for about 35 minutes. Leave to cool completely before cutting into bars.
Thank you Erin for allowing me to baby-sit your blog today. Wishing you a great vacation in Japan!
