February 5th will be World Nutella Day. If you’re in the mood to make something with Nutella, check NutellaDay.com. The website list hundreds of recipes using the chocolate-hazelnut spread. I’ve narrowed it down to my three favorites for you to choose from:
Nutella Tart: even Pierre Hermé participates with the Nutella hype. I spotted this recipe about a year ago and I still haven’t had the heart to make something with so many calories. Alas, I have an excuse to make them now. (they’re from Pierre Hermé’s ‘Chocolate Desserts’)
Brownies with Nutella Ganache: what could be better than brownies with Nutella? I’ve read that using Nutella in the brownie batter looses its delicious flavor, so I’m incorporating Nutella in the chocolate – hazelnut sour cream ganache. Yum!
Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting: these cupcakes are chocolate perfection personified! Whenever I make chocolate cupcakes I always wished I had used a chocolate frosting to match the flavor of the cake, so these are full on chocolate and full on yummy!
