If there's one thing that I have found amazing to bake with, it's Nutella. The stuff is so good! It gives a certain sweetness to my desserts without being too rich and overbearing.
For Valentine's Day, give these Nutella Valentine Cookie Cups a try. They are perfect as a little sweet treat after dinner. You could also make these for a child's party!
