With less than a month until Valentine's Day, you can bet room moms everywhere are preparing for the big Valentine's Day party at school! These Nutella Cookie Cups are perfect party treat! You can make them in different flavors and variations, and if your school is a nut free zone, then of course you will want to subsitute some plain chocolate spread or mousse for the Nutella. If that's the case though, these would be great for your Nutella loving children! The sky is the limit in how creative you can be. And the best part is, these are easy enough for kids to help make!
Folks, you may not like what I am about to say, but I need to get it off my chest. I do not like Nutella. In fact, I do not like hazelnuts at all, nor do I like hazelnut coffee creamer. My kids love Nutella, and my peanut butter allergic son can eat it, as well as my pecan/cashew/walnut allergic older son. (I don't know how he's not allergic to all tree nuts, but he's not! Thank goodness!) So if it were me, I would make this with Jif Peanut Butter and Chocolate Whips or Peanut Butter & Co.'s Dark Chocolate Dreams.
