Food Obsession

I have a new-found obsession.

That chocolate hazelnut amazingness.  God, I want to just sit and eat it with a spoon.  It's so freakin delicious, isn't it?  I'd had it a couple of times in high school, then had it for breakfast nearly every morning in Spain, then kind of forgot about it.  Until I remembered it.  And I am hooked.  I find myself looking for recipes that use Nutella, just so I have an excuse to eat it. 

I mean, there's the obvious.  Nutella on toast.  Which was my breakfast yesterday.  And quite yummy.

But that gets boring.  Don't get me wrong, it's delicious.  But I need something...more.  I recently made these pastry pockets for brunch with my high school girlfriends.  They turned out great, and they were pretty easy!

When my Nutella obsession was first re-ignited, I found this recipe for Nutella brownies.  I made these a few months ago, and they were good, but not great.  I loved the flavor, but I wasn't a fan of the texture.
I am just dying to try this recipe for Nutella meringue cookies.  I love meringues, and adding Nutella to mix just sounds...wowsers.

Do you have any food obsessions?  Or any good Nutella recipes to share?
