World Nutella Day - A Finger Lickn' Good Holiday!

What better way to celebrate World Nutella Day but with a simply delicious Nutella recipe - think Nutella-walnut-brownie!

 If you are a fan of peanut butter - then get out a spoon & dig-in to Nutella! Italians opt for the hazelnut over the peanut and combining it with chocolate is just divine! Thus Nutella was born! Thank the lord - it's finger lickin' good! I had never really gotten into Nutella in the States, but after my first taste here, I was in love! Creamy, chocolately & nutty! (The recipe is different here than in the States, less sweet, more nut.) It's great on bread, for baking or just eating a spoonfull! We've even made a nutella pizza!! I would suggest, if you have a fireplace to place it on the hearth to warm for about a half hour before you consume - I know that waiting is generally frowned upon - but it's worth it & makes it extra good & extra creamy! Trust me here!

Here is our favorite Nutella recipe (first translated & tested by my lovely sister Meagan)- it is ridiculously simple! Think of it like a Nutella brownie!
