Nutella- it is a dangerous thing to have in my house. While I do not like just chocolate by itself, something about this creamy hazelnut flavor has me hooked and I find myself going to the cabinet taking out tiny spoonful's to satisfy my sweet craving. So, I generally try to keep it out of the house. 

However, I knew we were headed for a visit to our boys college and I wanted to make them something easy to share with their roommates. They love my SCOTCHAROOS but I wanted to jazz them up a bit with the Nutella. I result was a HUGE HIT!! 

Today, I bring you this treat of a recipe PLUS I'm over at The Blended Blog today sharing a Thanksgiving recipe and Link-Up for Tasty Tuesday!

What you'll need

However, I knew we were headed for a visit to our boys college and I wanted to make them something easy to share with their roommates. They love my SCOTCHAROOS but I wanted to jazz them up a bit with the Nutella. I result was a HUGE HIT!! 

6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Karo Syrup
1 1/2 cups creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Nutella
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butterscotch chips
1/3 cup peanut butter chips

Spray a 9x13 pan with baking spray. In a large stock pan, heat the Karo and sugar until the sugar is dissolved and it just starts to boil. Do not bring to a rolling boil or boil too long or your Rice Krispies will be hard. Remove from the heat, add the peanut butter and stir well. Add to Rice Krispies and mix until well coated and press in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 dish. In a small saucepan, over medium low heat, add the Nutella and all the baking chips and melt until smooth. Poor evenly over the cereal mixture and let stand a couple hours until the chocolate hardens up. Cut into desired squares and enjoy.


My love for Amazon grew with the inception of Prime. How amazing is it to have a package on your doorstep and took a day or two? Whenever I cannot find a product, it can usually be found on Amazon plus fun and unusual stuff. I do lots of Holiday shopping on Amazon and will have a great tip for you. Taking a cue from my bloggy friends, BianaEmily and Rebecca Jo, here are some of the favorites I have ordered from Amazon recently including my FAVORITE Amazon purchase of all time!

We got many of our lights for the new house through a local vendor but some we ordered, this is the drum ceiling light for the master. It got great reviews and I love the little crystals. Amazon had the best price on it.

My sister-in-law got me some Deep Steep a few years ago and I have been hooked ever since. Amazon is about the only place I can find it, I use the foot polish too but I have nightly ritual and this is beside my bed & goes on right before I crawl in. My feet have been soft as can be ever since I have been using it. I'm addicted!

Tami got me the cutest owl car coaster for Christmas and my mom mentioned she would like a car coaster so when she watched Daisy for us one weekend, I surprised her with this adorable shoe one from Amazon. 
Great stocking stuffer idea for the ladies!

Just got this in the mail on Saturday and I LOVE it! I first saw it on Brittany's Blog and knew it had to mine with the love I have for Poncho's. It is super soft. My question for you all is: how would you style it? Just like the photo or with other pieces?

I have mentioned my love of this gloss many times. I have never found a gloss I liked as much as I love this one, but you cannot find it in most stores anymore. So, I stock up her on Amazon in this shade and in Berry Bella, my two favorites

Husband mentions in Dick's Sporting Goods that he'd like to have one of these so being the good wife I am, I surprised him with a "just because" gift! This colster is amazing and keeps his drinks cold for hours and the price was better on Amazon.

Ok, this is a story.....My old veggie peeler was my love, I had had it for over 20 years but a couple months ago, it broke and I cried. Yep, tears rolling down my face over a vegetable peeler you ask? Well, this peeler had been with me through all the good and bad and when I would be sad or upset and cooking, my cares melted away when I would peel with the ease of this peeler. I searched high and low and no store peeler would do, I went through two until I was like "oh yeah, try Amazon!" You see, peelers made in Sweden are just the best in my eyes so this Swedish peeler arrived and once again I can go to town peeling with a smile on my face.

Been using Watkins Vanilla for years and years and won all my Baking Contests at the Fair with it. A local Amish store sells it but now the price is $5 cheaper on Amazon so that was a no brainer that I needed to order my holiday baking staple form Amazon. 

A BIG IN LOVE moment when these puppies arrived!! That is why I dedicated 3 photos because the CUTENESS...oh my. They are even better in person and make the BEST gifts!! Last December I got Christmas ones and put them on everyone's glasses. Not only are they cute, but the magnets are so fun and you can distinguish who each drinking glass belongs too. Definitely not just for wine.

Ladies, look at the leopard platform shoes and purses....FABULOUS!!

Just look how cute these are for your Thanksgiving feast!!

YES, cheese and wine party anyone? 

Drum Roll Please..friends I have mentioned this Stepper and my love for it many times before because I literally use it 5-6 times a week and it is my not only my favorite purchase from Amazon ever but my favorite piece of fitness equipment ever and it is UNDER $40! I know several of you have purchased it. I can plop it in front to the TV or step while browsing my iPad or reading. I took the resistance bands off but they are nice. I love this so much that I have even bought 3 of them in the past 5 years. Step It up friends, you won't be sorry!! In fact, not that I am done what this post, I'm going to go get in my steps now. 
Here's mine

I get lots of stocking stuffers from Amazon. Beside the regular stuff I get at Target or Wal-Mart like gum, candy, car freshners, Jerkey, etc, Amazon has such a plethora of cool stocking stuffers. Here's the tip I promised you: 
In the Amazon Search engine type in Stocking Stuffer Ideas for ______, like teens, women, men, boys, girls, toddlers, etc
So many fun things pop up!!! I love including some unusual or not thought of stuff in the stocking too.

Keep in mind, I am in no way affiliated with Amazon and do not receive compensation for you buying a product or clicking on the link. I'm just a regular girl who loves to shop, loves to buy fun and pretty gifts and LOVES the Amazon service. Of course here is a little Amazon humor for ya on a Monday to make you smile.

Do you shop Amazon? What are your favorite things purchased from there?
