Happy “World Nutella Day″ ! Yup, it’s a thing! Originally created by Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso, World Nutella Day is a day to celebrate, get creative with, and most importantly, eat Nutella. In 2015, Sara transferred World Nutella® Day to Ferrero (the makers of Nutella®) to help it live on and grow for years to come.
It’s the 15th iteration of this auspicious day and my 12th year participating.
In 2010 I made a Nutella cheesecake, in 2011 I made Nutella lamingtons, in 2012 I went French with Nutella macarons craquelés, in 2013, I made Nutella truffle pops. in 2014 I made a flourless hazelnut-chocolate Nutella-inspired cake, in 2015 I made a chocolate-hazelnut smoothie in 2016, I made Nutella éclairs, in 2017 I made Nutella pots de crème, in 2018 I made Chocolate -Hazelnut Financiers, in 2019, I made Nutella Twists and Palmiers and last year I made Chocolate Hazelnut Bliss Bites.
This year, I’ve gone SUPER SIMPLE with a snack I came up with a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been teaching from home since the start of January and on some days, teach 5 classes with only short breaks in between. I’m always looking for snacks I can make/ eat quickly and the weather being what it is, hot chocolate is often my afternoon go-to. But one afternoon I was setting out ingredients for some recipe development later in the day and thinking about what I was going to snack on and my eye fell on the pot of Nutella and all of a sudden, I wondered about simply heating milk/ cream and mixing in Nutella to make a different type of hot chocolate.
