I'm not gonna tell you that you should make this recipe because it's valentine's day or anything like that. I don't have anything against this day, I just simply think that it's overrated. Anyhow, I can't control the media. And with all the chocolate ads, I can't help but crave cacao.
Even if you're not a fan of Nutella, don't worry this doesn't taste like it. I think most people who dislike Nutella is because of the hazelnut flavor, so I used soaked walnuts instead. What I love about this recipe is that it gives you a cacao caramel flavor. Ahhh soo good! Spread it on a piece of toast topped with a sliced banana and boom, heaven on your plate!
