World Nutella Day

February 5th is world Nutella Day! Thanks to Michelle from Bleeding Espresso ( who gave me the heads up.

I am a huge fan of Nutella, cause it’s packed with kosher soul. It goes great on just about anything from bread, waffles, to sandwiches. It doesn’t get any better that this…

Here are two yummy recipes that you can use to celebrate Nutella Day. Who doesn’t love s’mores or pound cake…but add in the nutella and honey you will be in foodie heaven. Nosh on!

Nutella S'Mores

1 jar Nutella
1 bag chocolate chip Cookies
1 bag marshmallows

Spread thick layer of Nutella on one cookie. Carefully toast a marshmallow and place on top of the Nutella. Spread the marshmallow almost to the edges. Cover with a second cookie to form a sandwich.

Heavenly Hazelnut Pound Cake

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 store-bought pound cake
1 cup Nutella
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 tablespoon orange liqueur
1 lemon, zested
Blackberries and raspberries, for garnish
Lightly toast the almonds in a small skillet. Set aside to cool.

Cut the pound cake in half, horizontally. Spread the chocolate spread on the cut side of both cake pieces. Sprinkle with toasted almonds. Then place the top half of the cake back onto the bottom half.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the whipped cream, orange liqueur and the zest. Cut the pound cake into 1-inch slices and serve with the whipped cream, blackberries and raspberries.
