This is one of the easiest, most luscious, gourmet desserts you will ever make.  I’ll give you the base, then you can go crazy with additions.  Never underestimate the power of Nutella!

The picture is of the ingredients, because it looks like thick chocolate pudding, and I’m guessing you’ve seen chocolate pudding before.
