Let’s celebrate the world’s most favourite spread!

The title is enough to tell you what we are talking about! Every year, 5th of February is celebrated as #WorldNutellaDay and fans all over the world go absolutely crazy to make sure that the day receives enough attention as it deserves. The American blogger, Sara Rosso is the official founder of this day and just like most of us, she is a Nutella fanatic and loves it so much that she decided there should be an entire day dedicated to the wonderfulness of this food product. . (And we couldn’t agree more!) People all over the world celebrate it by making exciting Nutella recipes, sharing Nutella arts, posing with jars, gifting it to their loved ones or penning down something special about it. Fun fact, did you know a jar of Nutella is produced every 2.5ish second? We’ll give you a moment to let that sink in!

Let’s start the celebrations with a  recipe of this decadent ‘chocolate hazelnut spread’ (which is 99% similar to Nutella) to try it in your home kitchen and also some scoop about creative and delicious ways to enjoy this almighty spread.

First, the recipe.

Still, spreading in on toasted bread and licking it off your fingers or spoon? C’mon, you can do better than that!

Time to learn some interesting ‘Nutella hacks’

  1. Sandwich style: Nutella can be easily and deliciously sandwiched between anything and everything. Cookies, sandwiches, buns, graham crackers, etc. You can also stuff it inside a number of things like crescent rolls, pancakes, truffles, cupcakes and more.
  2. Dip, dunk and lick: Nutella has been forever treating our taste buds single-handedly. Ever tried dipping into your favourite snacks or munchies, the taste just doubles. Don’t believe it, try it out with biscuits, Oreo, cookies, churros, strawberries, bananas, chocolate bars, etc. You will thank us later!
  3. Drink, drink, drink: If you haven’t yet tried a Nutella beverage, you’re missing out on one of the best things in life. Whether it is freak shakes, hot chocolates, smoothies or just a simple Nutella milk. This gorgeous spread literally has the superpower to make anything extra comforting and decadent.
  4. The perfect pizza:  We don’t think it can get any better than this. You can actually get creative in this one. Take a pizza base and bake it slightly without any toppings. Pull it out when warm,  spread copious amounts of Nutella on it and any of your favourite toppings like marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, etc.  Wait back for a short and sweet sugar rush!

Calling out all the Nutella lovers, it’s time to share your favourite ways of enjoying it with us in the comment section.

Happy #WorldNutellaDay to you!
