Nutella Bars

Over the weekend I made an easy and delicious sweet treat, Nutella shortbread bars.  Even my husband loved them, and he doesn’t have a love for sweets like I do.  The recipe is from Picky Palate.  If you don’t receive their daily emails already, I recommend you do.  There are some great recipes to choose from! Enjoy the sweet treat recipe below:
