Sugar Factory: Nutella Candy Bars

Nutella bars 041

Another sweet treat from my sugar factory has surfaced.  Are you surprised?

I love Nutella and I know a bunch of other people who love it as much as I do.  Did I tell that I found crunchy Nutella in the grocery store the other day.  I was so excited to find it!

And when I came upon Gingerbread Bagels blog featuring Nutella Candy Bars I knew it was something I had to make ASAP!  As in STAT!

A great no-bake bar featuring my favorite nut butter!

I served these Nutella Candy Bars alongside Avalanches and Reese’s Fudge Cookie Sandwiches at my Dad’s birthday party seen here:

Dad's Birthday 2011 002


Nutella Candy Bars

1 cup Nutella
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (finely ground)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, melted

4 Tablespoons Nutella
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips.

Put 1 cup of Nutella in a large bowl.

In a food processor, grind up the graham crackers. Measure out 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs and add them to the Nutella.

Add 2 cups of powdered sugar. Mix everything together.

Pour in 1 cup of melted unsalted butter and stir to completely combined.

Spray the inside of the pan with non stick spray. This will help the wax paper/parchment paper stick to the pan. Line a 9 by 12 baking pan with wax paper or parchment paper.

Put the Nutella Candy Bar mixture in the pan and press it down evenly.

For the topping:

In a microwavable bowl, melt together 4 Tablespoons of Nutella and 1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips.

Pour of the Nutella Candy Bars and spread it out evenly.

Refrigerate the Nutella Candy Bars for 1 hour. Let the Nutella Candy Bars come to room temperature before you eat them!

Thanks Lindsey for the recipe!


I made the recipe exactly as above, but instead of graham crackers I used Nilla wafers and some leftover animal crackers.

Mixing up the sweet sweet bottom layer of the bar.

Spread the mixture out evenly in a pan that is lined with wax or parchment paper.

And then for the chocolate Nutella icing layer on top.  Melt chocolate and Nutella in the microwave, pour and spread.

Simple, decadent and sweet!

I added some silver sprinkles on top to give it that “SceneFromMe” fashionable edge!

After these have cooled off and hardened in the fridge, remove from pan and peel off the wax paper.

Cut into squares, triangles, rectangles, stars, hearts whatever shape you want!

You can still see the bits and pieces of Nilla wafers in the bar, giving it a welcome crunch of sweetness.

Have you ever tried crunchy Nutella? 

Has this been out for a while and I’ve just never found the crunchy type? 

Or have you never tried Nutella?  (sorry about your luck)
