Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week?!  I’m still in shock.  I’ve been trying to think of what kinds of things to put on our menu this year.  Some sides like our Cheesy Corn Casserole are a must every year.  And then there’s things like this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole that may be making it’s first appearance at our holiday table this year.  I like to try and keep a balance of classical favorites and new dishes to keep my family on their toes.  And while I absolutely love pies (butternut squash pie, pecan pie, pumpkin pie) I’m thinking I may switch it up and serve these Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Bars with some ice cream instead!

I was beyond thrilled when Breyers asked me to join them in creating a holiday dessert that could showcase their ice cream.  I’m a huge fan of ice cream, and it’s the perfect complement to dessert.  Which means that I enjoy it somewhat often.  And Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream does not disappoint!  Honestly, one of my favorite things about it is the way it looks.  Pure white, with specks of vanilla.  Perfection.  There is not a prettier ice cream out there to adorn your holiday desserts.  And the taste of course is wonderfully simple, just like a vanilla ice cream should be.

Breyers, makers of America’s No. 1 vanilla ice cream, is celebrating its 150th birthday this year. The Breyers pledge to quality has kept the brand  a family favorite since 1866.  Some things you might not know about Breyers: Breyers now uses only milk and cream from American cows not treated with artificial growth hormones (*Suppliers of other ingredients such as cookies, candies & sauces may not be able to make this pledge.  The FDA states that no significant difference has been shown between dairy derived from rBST-treated and non-rBST treated cows). The vanilla that goes into Breyers products is 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™, and comes from sustainable vanilla farms in Madagascar. And Breyers uses 100% sustainably farmed fruit to make some of their most popular fruit-based recipes like Natural Strawberry, Cherry Vanilla and Peach.

Just a little bit more about these bars.  I used a method of adding the nutella to the middle that I saw from my friend Karen at the Food Charlatan, she used it for her Nutella Stuffed Browned Butter Blondies

The pockets of the nutella in the middle of the pumpkin bars makes for one gooey dessert.  It’s kind of magical.  The batter is thick and the bars come out cake like, but sturdy.  Which is perfect for housing those nutella surprises.
