For the Super Bowl, we had a little family party. Along with the Shredded BBQ Chicken sandwiches, Veggies and other goodies, I made Nutella Bars. I found the recipe in the newspaper in an article for Super Bowl recipes. I usually don't make newspaper recipes, but this one was easy and I knew my kids would love it. I thought it might taste like Rice Crispy squares (yuck, I don't like those!) because the recipe is so similar, but the Nutella added a depth of chocolate flavor that made these irresistable! So even though our Steelers lost, we can console ourselves with these bars, until next year's Super Bowl :)
1 cup of light syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
6 cups crisp rice cereal (like Rice Crispies)
Lightly grease an 9 by 11 inch baking pan (I used cooking spray).
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, sugar and Nutella. Heat and stir often until the sugar is melted (be very careful. this gets hot). Remove from heat and add the cereal. Toss well, until all the cereal is coated. Transfer to the prepared pan and push down to form an even layer in the pan. Rinse hands in water to help with stickiness.
Let cool 30 minutes then using a knife run under water, cut into 20 squares.
