Nutella Balls

You Will Need:
1½ cups powdered sugar
½ cup Nutella
3 Tbsp softened butter

1 bag chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp of cold butter
or 1 pound of melting chocolate
  Makes: About 20 
Takes: 15 minutes
 My college roommate would often get care packages that included these amazing peanut butter snowballs that her mom would make.  Every once in a ble moon, I would convince her to share one or two and it was never enough.  When her mom came to visit, I coerced her into giving me the recipe for her oh-so-coveted peanut butter snowballs in exchange for my beloved chocolate chip cookie recipe (to this day, she's the only one I've shared it with).  

Fast forward to this year.  I planned on making a easy snowball treat and realized there was no peanut butter.  I made a few adjustments to the recipe and Nutella Balls were an absolute hit!  Turns out trading recipes with your friend's mothers (rather than doing whatever it is normal college students do) comes in handy.
In a mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar, Nutella and softened butter.  Mix well.  Refrigerate for ten minutes.
Shape into 1 inch balls and place on paper lined cookie sheet.  Chill for 30 minutes or until firm. (Add more powdered sugar if balls will not form)
While chilling, use a double boiler to melt chocolate chips and butter or melting chocolate according to package directions.
Dip balls in chocolate and place on waxed paper to harden.
Try not to eat all of them in one sitting!

Alexandra is planted in New York City which she considers to be the greatest city in the world (Paris is a close second). She had moved over thirty times by the age of twelve and has since lost count. This brought on an insane case of wanderlust for which she hopes to never find a cure.  Growing up, she was a huge Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen fan which led her to find a love for fashion as they grew to be designers.  She considers Audrey Hepburn to be the best dressed person of all time and often looks through pictures of her when she can't decide what to wear. She has an avid fear of getting wrinkles and avoids things that bring them like the plague.

She absolutely hates to be alone and finds any excuse to plan parties, cook for friends, or even herd children. You will often find her watching Annie (2014), crafting, convincing people to hold her hand, wearing dark lipstick, asking someone what their favorite thing about life is, or sitting with half a watermelon in her lap with a spoon. She loves to win (even in noncompetitive situations), Christmas, and to serve people in any way she can.
