I know what you're thinking. Nutella and peanut butter? That is one nut butter too many. But hear me out. The base of these Nutella Peanut Butter Bars is a mix of graham crumbs, peanut butter, and a little powdered sugar. It's crumbly, earthy, and not a little salty, thanks to our good friend peanut butter. This is the perfect foundation for a sweet, rich topping of chocolate mixed with Nutella and crunchy hazelnuts. On their own, each element might be overwhelming: too crumbly, too salty, too cloying, too sweet. But add them together, and presto! You've created a match made in heaven. Peanut butter and Nutella is the new peanut butter and jelly. You can quote me on that.
