Keep Houston Press Free

Midnight Munches: The Nutella Sandwich

Necessity is the mother of invention. For those long stretches between Easter and Halloween when candy is in short supply and groceries dwindle--here's a simple recipe to squash late-night sweets cravings.

Estimated prep: The time it takes for infomercials for the Topsy Turvy to transition to episodes of Simply Ming. Start with two slices of bread -- wheat if you must but white if you're going for authenticity. Spread Nutella on one like you would peanut butter on this sandwich's inferior daytime counterpart. Give the other slice a Paula Deen-style helping of butter. We're going for near-equal parts of Nutella and butter here. Add sprinkles for that necessary crunch. Combine.

Enjoy feeling confident that if anyone were to witness your midnight misdeed, unlike chips or ice cream or that bowl of Count Chocula, they need never know what lurks between your slices of bread.

A magnificent photo of the completed sandwich is after the jump.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
