Tastes more like chocolate cake than Nutella but it’s really good. Might try less cocoa powder next time to cut back on the chocolate flavor.
It’s a personal preference as to how much Nutella flavor you want coming through. You can definitely adjust the flavors next time you make it and I’d love to hear how it turns out for you. Thank you so much for stopping by Swirls Theresa! Happy cooking, Gwynn
