How about a little Sunday sweet treat?!

Cinnamon Sugar Nutella Quesadilla | @hbharvest

When my little sister first started kindergarten, every day after school I would make her a “chocolate sandwich”, aka soft bread spread with a heavy amount of Nutella. It was her all time favorite, and she looked forward to it every single afternoon. Asher just started second grade (this last Tuesday…oh my gosh, time is flying by!!!), and even though she’s older now, her “chocolate sandwich” is still the first thing she asks for when running in the door. The only thing that’s changed about Asher’s obsession is that somewhere over the years, the sandwich morphed from bread into flour tortillas. I’m not sure how this little idea of hers came to be, but it’s delicious and she’s a smart little girl for thinking it up… Ok well actually, now that I think about it, I do remember how it went from bread to tortillas. Asher NEEDED her chocolate fix, but we were out of bread, fortunately, tortillas came to the rescue. She ended up liking it more than the bread. 🙂

Today I am sharing a slightly elevated version of Asher’s after school snack by warming the quesadilla in the skillet with a pat of butter, and then sprinkling generously with cinnamon sugar.

Um, YES. I know this may sound slightly odd, but I promise, it’s one of the simplest, most delicious snacks ever! Best part… it’s ready for eating in under ten minutes.

Count me in!

Also, you should know that Asher says the cinnamon sugar is like icing on the cake…aka the best!!

  • In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Spread the Nutella over half of the quesadilla and then fold the other half over the Nutella to create a half circle. Place the quesadilla in the skillet and cook 1-2 minutes, flip and cook another 1-2 minutes, or until the Nutella is warmed through. Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and add to a plate. Immediately sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar. You will not need all the cinnamon sugar, save any leftover for another use. Slice in half and EAT!

    Went into this recipe very unconvinced thinking it was too much butter and going to be too sweet. Well! I was so wrong! It was so delicious and not too sweet at all not oily. The tortilla is not sweet itself so it was very well balanced. I could see this tasting amazing with lemon sugar too – to add a bit of acid!

    Sweet lord these sure do float my boat! My son Harley has got a nut allergy and that boy got the biggest lips I had ever seen but these are worth eating for him. He is fine, until I make another batch! The one thing is I that this recipe shall be called the Nutilla since queso means cheese.
