World Nutella Day – February 5, 2011
I can’t wait!!! I decided yesterday to do a World Nutella Day Party to celebrate the wonders and versatility of my friend, Nutella. The ideas are flooding into my head, to the point I feel it’s going to explode with Nutella goodness overload! So, this is just to advise you to be on the lookout for amazing things to come…involving NUTELLA!!!
If you haven’t experienced Nutella yet, purchase a wonderful jar today in your local grocery store. Should be hanging out near my other friend, Peanut Butter…..
From NutellaUSA.com: “Nutella® spread, in its earliest form, was created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, there was very little chocolate because cocoa was in short supply due to World War II rationing. So Mr. Ferrero used hazelnuts, which are plentiful in the Piedmont region of Italy (northwest), to extend the chocolate supply.”
Check out a ton of Nutella recipes here on NutellaDay.com. Some of which I will be making for the party! Still so excited about the planning!!!
Yes, as referenced above, there is a World Nutella Day website that explains the beginnings of World Nutella Day. Check it out here.
As I leave you, please consider trying Nutella. If you didn’t know…those perfect little gold balled truffles called Ferrero Rocher’s are filled with delicious Nutella. So, maybe you have had Nutella before and didn’t even know it! Amazing, eh?
The picture is from a little appetizer I put together a while back…slices of Banana, Nutella (of course), and chopped Hazelnuts sprinkled on top. Yummmmmm…
