Doenee’s Nutella Bars Recipe

Doenee’s Nutella Bars Recipe


Doenee is my sister. Her real name is Denise but when we were very young I couldn’t say Denise so I mumbled Doenee when I called her, and the name stuck. This is her recipe and they’re great game-day food. By the way, Doenee is older than I am.


  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Nutella (chocolate-hazelnut spread)
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal


Lightly grease a 9-by-13-inch pan. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the corn syrup, sugar, and Nutella, stirring often until the sugar is melted. Remove pan from the heat and add the cereal. Gently stir well, coating all of the cereal. Transfer the mixture to the pan and push down [Editor’s note: use waxed paper to press down so the rice mixture doesn't stick] to form an even layer in the pan. Let cool for 30 minutes, then cut into 20 bars.
