World Nutella Day 2011

Did you know that today is the fifth anniversary of World Nutella Day?

Sara of Ms. Adventures in Italy, and Michelle of Bleeding Espresso, declare Saturday, February 5 "World Nutella Day  2011."  This is the day to celebrate Nutella--that wonderful concoction of chocolaty-hazel nutty goodness. 

Bake something using Nutella, eat it with a spoon right out of the jar, or write an ode to this sugary treat.
Whatever you choose to do today, do it with Nutella.

This recipe for Nutella Scones, from the book "Baked Explorations" by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, came to me through Susan at Spoon and Shutter. What a great way to start the day!

Of course, I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but they were still good.

If you don't have the time or the inclination to make scones, try sandwiching two amarettini cookies together with a smear of Nutella.  They will do just fine.


  1. Happy World Nutella Day, Michele! As always, your food pictures are delicious just to look at! Stay warm!

  2. I love nutella! It's one of my favorite choclates. Your picutres are stunning. Love how you made the sandwiches. Very creatie Michele :)

    Have a great week ahead.

  3. Faith--Thank you! The taste of chocolate and hazelnuts is divine.

  4. oh no---I missed World Nutella Day! I think it deserves a Week.
    there are myriad wonderful things to do with this spread--even as simple and elegant as your amaretti cookie sandwiches---great idea!

  5. Nancy--Go ahead and celebrate all week! There sure are plenty of ways to enjoy Nutella.
