Nutella Butterfingers

I love Butterfingers. I think they have just the right amount of flakiness and chocolate flavor to them. My mom loves them too. However, my dad is allergic to peanut butter so I wanted to make a kind of butterfinger without peanut butter. So introducing: Nutella Butterfingers. They are decadent, flaky, and is the perfect indulgent treat. It's made with the infamous Nutella, a delicious hazelnut spread. These can be decorated with chocolate and many other toppings. Be as creative or simple as you want! Nutella Butterfingers is the perfect treat for those who want an alternative to the ever-popular Butterfinger.

Your dad's allergic to peanuts but not hazelnuts? Wonder what's in peanuts that's not in the hazelnuts....
peanuts are a legume, not a nut.
True, but people who are allergic to peanuts seem to also be allergic to tree nuts.

Great! How did it work for you? (I would love it if you posted some pics :)
Yeah it worked for me! :D I'll post some pictures the next time I get to make them again. :D

That would be great! I'm glad you liked the recipe. (And I don't even remember where I got those plates but what a coincidence).
Thanx! Do you know where to get Nutella? :D

Nutella can be found in your local grocery store. Probably next to the peanut butter and jams.
I don't see it in the grocery store, but I just had just enough for the recipe. Thanx!

Oh and also for all of your instructables, you have the exact plate that I do.

Really? The white one?
Yep. It's weird. My dad uses those for burritos. So when I saw that plate a noticed that it is the exact same plate.

Looks good, but, I don't think the ingredients make much sense.

2 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 1/2 tablespoons cup water

Is it 2 1/2 tablespoons of water or 2 1/2 cups of water? and only 2 1/1 tablespoons of corn syrup?

I'd like to make this, but the proportions didn't seem to add. :)

Oops :) Sorry! It's supposed to be:

2 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 1/2 tablespoons water

I hope you do try to make this! Be warned: it doesn't make that many butterfingers so double or triple to your needs :)

I hope I got a vote!
