If your previous forays into eating Nutella for breakfast have involved dry wheat toast and fruit (because healthy), you're in for a treat. Literally.

When it comes down to it, Nutella is basically a chocolate candy spread. And that's nothing to be ashamed of! So what happens when the usual Nutella accompaniments — whole-grain English muffins, sliced apples, a bowl of oats — are thrown out the window? Pure magic, that's what.

Over at A Beautiful Mess, there's a recipe for Nutella breakfast cereal that will blow your mind. It looks unassuming, kind of like Cocoa Puffs, but actually, "This cereal is more like tiny chocolate nutella cookies. So that's pretty awesome." Cookies for breakfast? Um, yeah, that is pretty awesome!

The cereal takes just seven ingredients and bakes up in less than a half-hour. Chocolaty and crunchy, this Nutella breakfast cereal is the perfect food to make the start of an ordinary day extraordinary.
