Frozen Nutella Pie

No bake Nutella pie that is cold and creamy like ice cream and simple enough to make that I must tell you about it.

I recently discovered the amazingness of Nutella.  When I spent a summer in Australia it was popular there.  But for whatever reason I never tried it.  It's popular here in the US, too.  Even though I've seen commercials about it I still hadn't tried it.  Just a couple of weeks ago I purchased a jar.  I spread it on toast for breakfast.  It was way too sweet for my breakfast tastebuds so I put it aside.

Then one evening I was craving chocolate.  My eye spotted animal crackers in the pantry and I decided I needed to dip them in Nutella.  Korey found me out and joined me in my discovery.  Together we enjoyed the awesomeness of "cracktella."

But then something bad happened.  I decided I needed to get rid of the Nutella in my house because it was too good to keep around.  "Aha," I thought.  I'll make a pie with it.  But not just any pie.  A no bake, frozen pie.  How could I resist?
