World Nutella Day 2011 Roundup Part 1

Thanks to everyone for participating in the 5th Anniversary of World Nutella Day!

We were overwhelmed by the submissions, the #NutellaDay Tweets taking over Twitter, the 20,000 fans on Facebook, and the new photos added to the Nutella Day Flickr pool.

We’ll be adding these recipes to the hundreds of Nutella recipes on the Nutella Day site in a few days, but for now, be sure and visit the participants and their wonderful recipes on their own sites.

Make sure you don’t miss out on the Part 2 of the World Nutella Day round-up on Bleeding Espresso!

  5. says

    How can I go have my salad for lunch when I’ve seen this tempting round-up? I’m off to buy Nutella. And I’m annoyed at myself for not participating this year. Hope you continue the tradition next year.

  6. Rose in Cali says

    I love how so many of the recipes used homemade Nutella! I am will definitely try making my own batch. Maybe I’ll have an entry by next year.

  7. says

    I made Nutella muffins on Friday evening and ate them on Saturday without even knowing it was Nutella. I was just getting ready to post about them tomorrow. Very weird coincidence. I must have felt your vibe. Ciao!

  8. says

    I always love looking at these round-ups. People are so creative (and make me feel less bad for skiving off my “diet” for the sake of Nutella, LOL!). I tried to submit something, but must have gotten the e-mail address wrong since the message bounced. Well, there’s always next year.
    Thank you Sara and Michelle for all the hard work you put into pulling this event off so fabulously =).

    I’d love to use nutella but the last time I checked the ingredients here in the U.S. it has high fructose corn syrup in it. I don’t eat HFCS.

  10. says

    In my humble opinion, my family’s business imports the best chocolate spread ever, from Baratti & Milano, called Crema di Nocciole which uses the well known Italian hazelnuts from Piemonte. It is amazingly smooth and delicious and not too sweet or fake tasting. Everyone from kids to celebrity chefs have tried it and love it!!
