Vegan Nutella Recipe

When I was a kid, visiting some family friends, I discovered Nutella. It wasn't something my mom would ever buy... it was too expensive and too high in calories. But there was something about that chocolate hazelnut spread that I found amazingly good. It was kind of like a Peanut Butter Cup, but with hazelnuts instead of peanut butter. And, of course, it was spreadable. It was given to me on Wonder Bread, also something I didn't often have at home (no nutritional value).

I never bought the stuff as an adult. I think it might be like Spaghetti-O's. I always had the fondest memory of eating them as a child. Actually, I remember really liking them. Then, when I was living alone in my first apartment, I bought a can at the supermarket. With the greatest anticipation, I heated them up and put them in a bowl. And they were HORRIBLE! (The ingredient list would have been a clue, had I looked at it!) That experience taught me to be wary of foods I adored as a child. And it's borne out in things like Fruit Loops cereal and the like.

I'm afraid the Nutella would taste like that to me today. But then again, maybe not. I think it was marketed towards adults. Anyway, Lane and I have been poking around the internet looking at vegan recipes, and i stumbled across a message board thread with a recipe for Vegan Nutella. There are a few versions on the thread, I may have to try them all. Sometimes I'll make Lane an Almond Butter, Honey, and Banana sandwich for lunch. The nutella might make for a nice change from the almond butter on occasion.
