Trese, a new streaming television series adaptation based on a well-received Filipino horror comic, has been a hot topic online. One of the many highlights that captured the attention of local viewers is a Filipino favorite—Choc Nut. 

On the Netflix offering, main character Alexandra Trese was seen bribing Nuno—a dwarf-like creature in Philippine mythology—to get some information she needed on a certain matter. The local delight showcases a mix of chocolate and peanut butter that has an incredible powdery result.

Many have found themselves craving the sweet treat after seeing the reference on the show. Although the generous serving size shown in the series is still in the realm of make-believe, this list of Choc Nut desserts are treats that you can actually order right here, right now.

Ever craved Choc Nut, butternut, and Nutella at the same time? This one’s for you. Rogue Doughnuts is offering Choco Hazel Butternut for P125 each, which features its signature sourdough donut with a generous serving of hazelnut cream inside and some peanut crumble on top. 

There’s always time for ice cream, even when it’s cold. Do you agree? Manila Creamery’s Choc Nut Crumble (P360/pint) is inspired by the famous delight, showcasing the goodness of chocolate and peanut gelato with hazelnut crumble.

This is only for serious Choc Nut lovers like Nuno: you can delight in an extra-large jar (P1,450) from Choc Nut Spread on Instagram. There’s no wrong way to enjoy this—spread it atop some bread for a yummy snack, mix it with milk for some hot chocolate, or simply eat it out of the container with a spoon. 

Last but not the least, there's also this giant Choc Nut Cake by The Bunny Baker (P5,000). Take note that it's not a huge bar, though—this offering is actually a cake available in different flavors namely chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, banana, carrot, rainbow, and funfetti.
