Everyone loves a good sundae, right? Lately I have been treating myself to mini-sundaes. It's not a great habit, but I am trying to keep it under control. Just tiny ones after my salad for dinner. Who am I kidding, I will always find a reason to justify eating ice cream! 😉
I was sent some hazelnut spread from Nocciolata, Italy's organic chocolate/hazelnut spread. This deliciously smooth spread is gluten-free, kosher and has no palm oil, hydrogenated fat, artificial flavors or artificial colors. Turns out if you heat it up just a little, you can use it as a scrumptious sundae topping. Instead of a hot fudge sundae, it's a hot hazelnut sundae.
For a little crunch I added some Nonni's THINaddictives. I was sent a few boxes of these to try, as well. My favorite is the Banana Dark Chocolate, but I also have Blueberry Oat Almond Thins. THINaddictives are lightly sweet and crunchy snacks. Each individual packet is 100 calories, 4 grams of fat and less than 14 grams of carbohydrates. These tasty almond thins are a great cookie alternative and provide a sweet crunch to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Both of these products added wonderful flavor to my sundae creation. Hazelnut spread has been my weakness for a while now. I pretty much try to put it on everything.
Here's how I made my new favorite sundae
I scooped real vanilla ice cream into a small dish. Then I poured on just a dash of skim milk. This makes the ice cream a little icier and I love it. I took some Nocciolata hazelnut spread and microwaved it just a few seconds. After it was melted a bit, I poured it on top of the ice cream. For some crunch I added in the Banana Dark Chocolate THINaddictives almond thins.
