When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie that’s Amore.

Ahh romance is in the air.

What am I doing for my hubby of ten years this fine Valentines Day you ask? He will be getting a VERY romantic scrub down.

On the house. Yes, I’m getting the house pressure washed.

As if that wasn’t romantic enough, I’m throwing in the driveway and front walk too.

Yup, that’s me, the hopeless romantic.

And this dish will be a perfect breakfast in bed for that special someone in your life. Or in my case, myself. The hubbs isn’t much of a breakfast eater, and hey, he’s getting that scrub down remember?

Sometimes you’ve gotta do something nice for yourself. Mmmm……melt-y chocolate and peanut butter for breakfast. It almost looks like a dessert.

But looks can be deceiving. Yes it IS melt-y chocolate hazelnut and peanut buttery goodness, but it’s almost savory as opposed to really sweet.

Justin’s Hazelnut Chocolate butter doesn’t have as much sugar as Nutella so the taste of the cocoa and hazelnuts really shines through. For a sweeter taste just add a tablespoon or so of good quality maple syrup or sweetener of choice.
