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.
