Snackas of the day: I am such a huge fan of all candy Kinder. Being a lover of toys and chocolate, I fell head over heels with the Kinder Egg many many moons ago. So it came as no surprise when I stumbled on it’s cute cousin called Kinder Happy Hippo. This cookie candy hybrid in it’s playful hippo shape entices the kid in me but satisfies my adult palate. It’s crunchy crisp wafer like shell is filled with a creamy hazelnut and milk filling, then dipped in white chocolate and meringue crumbs. So yummy. They make a chocolate cream version too….. I heart them both. They are hard to find here in the United States but when you run across them, grab with both hands. Or if you find yourself in Europe, load your suitcase up and bring them home to your friends and loved ones.
Side note: Kinder Happy Hippo is made by Ferrero SpA, they also make Nutella…. That’s what I’m talking about.
