My Two Cents:
I have a confession. I'm a major chocoholic; it's really a chronic condition. Full disclosure: for the past little while, I've been trying hard to eat cleanly (almost paleo-like) but one thing I just haven't been able to kick is my chocolate habit. Now I've known for a long time that Nutella has to be a gift from the gods as it is sooo amazing. I'm wild about Nutella and love eating it in many, many different forms. The flavor is absolute perfection.
I was so excited to receive this book. It was a surprise from the publisher and what a surprise it was! First, the book is shaped like a giant jar of Nutella. I was able to restrain myself enough from trying to eat the actual book to be able to actually open the pages. This book is filled with Nutella based desserts to absolutely thrill and entice you, your family, and your friends. Every single recipe sounded divine. The recipes range from pretty easy (banana and nutella milkshakes for instance) to potentially temperamental (Nutella macarons - oh my god!) so it's good for a wide variety of different levels of cooks.
I could see this book being a very fun book to give to the chocolate lover in your life!
