Reese's Sandwich

Nutella is the brand name of a chocolate spread. Nutella, manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero, was introduced on the market in 1963. The recipe was developed from an earlier Ferrero spread released in 1944. Nutella is now sold in over 75 countries.

An older recipe, Gianduja, was a mixture containing approximately 20% almond and or hazelnut paste and 80% chocolate. It was developed in Piedmont, Italy, after taxes on cocoa beans hindered the manufactured and distribution of conventional chocolate.

Pietro Ferrero, who owned a patisserie in Alba (province of Cuneo), in the Langhe district of Piedmont, an area known for the production of hazelnuts, sold an initial batch of 300 kilograms (660 lb) of "Pasta Gianduja" in 1946. This was originally a solid block, but in 1949, Ferrero started to sell a creamy version in 1951 as "Supercrema".

In 1963, Pietro's son Michele revamped Supercrema with the intention of marketing it across Europe. Its composition was modified and it was re-named "Nutella". The first jar of Nutella left the Ferrero factory in Alba on 20 April 1964. The product was an instant success and remains widely popular.

I almost didn't post this recipe, it's to easy, but taste so good.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
