I have found my newest family tradition! We’re going to be celebrating World Nutella Day! In 2007, World Nutella Day was named an official “holiday” — and it’s definitely a holiday that I can get on board with! (With a spoon, and a knife, and bread, and apple slices, and …)
World Nutella Day is a day to celebrate the much loved, versatile, crazy delicious chocolate-hazelnut treat that is Nutella.
Whether you’re someone who savors Nutella by the spoonful, dips bananas in it (am I the only one who wonders if Elvis’ favorite treat might have been Nutella and banana sandwiches, if he’d known about Nutella?), or someone who dreams about different and uniquely delicious ways to fit Nutella into every meal and snack of the day; today is a day for you to celebrate and indulge.
Our favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread can be eaten in so many ways, whether it’s paired with breakfast, lunch, snacks, cakes, or integrated into childhood favorites turning them into a brand new treat — you’re sure to find a recipe among these 14 Nutella recipes that will inspire you, delight you, and have you running to the pantry to get out the Nutella and create something delicious.
You can find more inspiration by following the hashtag #NutellaDay on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and get involved by tagging your own pictures and tweets with #NutellaDay.
