In the flurry of sports headlines…today is the parade for the Super Bowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, (boy, was that painful!) and there’s ongoing news and drama around the Sochi Olympics…you could be missing an exciting new entry to the list of “world” days: World Nutella Day. It’s a young event, launched in 2007, so momentum is still building. 🙂
Complete with website, World Nutella Day provides the perfect excuse for uniting spoon and spread, for enjoying chocolate creaminess long before the Easter bunny hops this way. This is a day for lip-licking, jar-cleaning, smear-on-any surface goodness, and I’m proud to partake!
To celebrate in style, check out the plethora of Nutella recipes you can try. Pinterest offers a gold mine. Nutella has come a long way, moving beyond a humble spread for toast to star in ice cream, pastries, cakes, brownies…any place you would want chocolate, you can invite Nutella. And really…is there any dessert that doesn’t deserve a chocolate option?

World Nutella Day! How did I miss this? I love nutella. My favorite recipe is to spread six graham crackers with nutella and top with a marshmallow; spread another six with peanut butter and top them with marshmallows. Pop under the broiler til all melty and then squish together – peanut butter, marshmallow, chocolate, graham cracker goodness. Yum.
Hmmm…sounds like a delicious take on s’mores…I’ve never added peanut butter, and Nutella makes anything better! I’ll have to give this a try. Thanks for the yummy description, I’ll know just how to layer all the goodness! ~ Sheila
I’m so glad you informed me of this unusual day of celebration!…I wouldn’t have wanted to miss my smear of Nutella on a apple or somehing!…so fun!
I know, me too! I love this stuff! ~ Sheila
