    • Hi Lydia Thanks so very much for visiting and dropping a comment. Never been to Paris, can you believe it, but I can imaging that a nutella crepe must be awesome.

  1. I’d never even thought to try and make our own Nutella, just one of those things I have become used to picking up and putting in the trolley! A fantastic recipe… definitely worth trying and spreading on a waffle 🙂 Sim x
