You know that afternoon when someone you love comes home with a weary look on their face?

It could be a child who had a rough day on the playground, a spouse who lost out on a business deal at work, or a friend who lost out in love.

That… is the day to make chocolate cinnamon toast.

No, it doesn’t have to be made in the morning.

In fact, I find I enjoy chocolate cinnamon toast much more as a “rough day” snack.

Something about the warm oozy chocolate hazelnut spread slathered on soft tangy sour dough bread, with a sweet crunchy cinnamon topping, and a hint of salt, instantly produces a silver lining around any gray cloud.

Today’s 5 Minute Fix is one of my favorite little splurges.

It’s so decadent, it only comes out on special desperately-needed occasions, like dollar sized bandaids and top-shelf liquor.

Spread a little Nutella over freshly cut sour dough bread. Sprinkle cinnamon mixed with brown sugar and salt over the top. Toast in the oven until crispy and melty.

Then pull out the tissues and prepare to be hugged.

    I think this is going to be a must try for my fiancé, she is a really big fan of Nutella. I am curious if you’ve tried this creation with other types of bread other than sour dough? I’m a big fan of sour dough, but I never imagined it would work with Nutella.
