Nutella Snowflakes

Happy World Nutella Day, Food Fans! And thanks, Nutella, for creating a celebration day that even Dorie Greenspan can get behind!

I remember the first time I tasted Nutella. That bite literally made me swoon. This is because Nutella has super powers. Really. And now, I use it in every single way possible. Just say, in brownies, or  in any experiment I can!

One of the fun things I did with my kids when they were little was to make snowflakes out of tortillas. Edible works of art. What’s better than that? To turn them into crispy, ooey gooey Nutella treats is really a cinch. So, so easy.

Here are the 6 easy steps:

1) buy the thinnest flour tortillas you can find. 2) fold up a tortilla into six parts or eight parts, just like you would if you were making a round paper snowflake. 3) you cut little squares, triangles and circles around the folds to make a snowflake. 4) unfold and toast your snowflake in a large skillet over low heat – turning frequently until fully crisp, lightly browned and toasty. 5) brush on some heated Nutella with a pastry brush. 6) While  still warm, sprinkle on some powdered sugar and – Voila! – edible art!
