World Nutella Day


What a wonderful day! It's World Nutella Day and if you know anything about me, you know I LOVE Nutella!!! My blogging friend, Brittney (Adventures in Gluttony) was such a sweetheart and sent me an email a few days ago to tell me about the event and I am so glad she did. Unfortunately, my Nutella file is in Germany so I was off to find something different to make.

I didn't want a cookie or cake because I have had A LOT of chocolate baked goods lately. I found a wonderful recipe for grilled pineapple at the Food Network and decided to give it a try. I changed it up a little and didn't really follow a recipe, but it worked perfectly!


This morning I grilled up the pineapple and topped it with Nutella and mascarpone sweetened with brown sugar and a little vanilla. Oh.... my.... goodness! What an incredible and decadent breakfast!

Thanks to Ms. Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso for hosting World Nutella Day. Seriously, if any food needs a special holiday, it's Nutella!!!

Thanks, I had no idea about Nutella Day. It's the same day as Ronald Reagan Day and I was sporting my 1980 political buttons on Friday while making my thick, chewy chocolate chip cookies.

That is an original dessert you have there with that Nutella. I wish I was over there . . I'd eat it for breakfast!

I'm so glad that you were able to participate! Those pineapples look soooooo good! I never would have thought to combine the two.

And yes, Nutella does deserve its own special day!
