These are basically like peanut butter cups, but filled with Nutella instead. They are as good as they sound.

I don’t make much homemade candy. It can be messy, I don’t like dealing with melting chocolate, and after all the work, I prefer to just spend the money and buy a bag at the store. But if it’s candy that doesn’t exist in the store, then it’s worth making.

I love peanut butter cups. But something I love even better is Nutella. And I haven’t yet seen Nutella candy cups sold anywhere yet. So after seeing a bunch of homemade peanut butter cup recipes, I thought “why not make my own Nutella version?”

I hope everyone had a good weekend whether they were celebrating Easter or not. I had a very much needed relaxing weekend. I slept, caught up on various tasks, watched movies, ate a lot of unhealthy fast food, and spent time in the kitchen baking and cooking recipes I’ve had on my to-do list.

Even though my family doesn’t celebrate Easter, I wanted to make one Easter themed recipe. I really really love the bunny buns I made last year. It’s one of my favorites. I didn’t want to repeat the same thing, but I made something similar: soft pretzel bunnies!

I was really happy with how these came out. Though I had the hardest time eating them. I ate them from the back side first so I didn’t have to see the two eyes.

I’ve really dropped the ball on making and trying new holiday themed recipes this year. It’s been a super busy year with wedding planning, house hunting, craziness at work. I’m especially sad about not doing Easter recipes because there is so much cuteness surrounding Easter with bunnies and chicks. And of course there are all the brunch item ideas.

Anyhow, I thought I’d do a roundup of past Easter themed recipes I made for people still looking for ideas. Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in at least one new to share with you later.
