While looking for recipes for something sweet to create I came across this made with one of my favorite ingredients…NUTELLA!  I think I’ll try this tonight!


Pizza dough
2 tablespoons butter (1/4 stick), melted
1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella)
1/2 cup chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
2 tablespoons chopped high-quality white chocolate (such as Lindt or Perugina)
2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts


Preheat oven to 450°F. Line large baking sheet with parchment. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 11-inch round. Transfer dough to prepared sheet. Make indentations all over dough with fingertips. Brush melted butter over. Bake until pale golden, about 20 minutes.

Smooth chocolate-hazelnut spread over hot crust. Sprinkle chopped bittersweet chocolate and white chocolate over. Bake until chocolate begins to melt, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts over, cut into wedges, and serve.

Well it is here at last……yummmmy! After dinner tonight I’m gonna make my favorite dessert….It involves Nutella. I wish I had a crepe machine but instead I have a panini grill. So I’ll stop at the store for fresh croissants. This recipes is simple all you need is:

1 fresh croissant (my bread of choice) 2-3 Tbls or more of Nutella 4 lg strawberries sliced thin

Spread the Nutella over a cut croissant and lay strawberries on Nutella, slowly grill on paninni grill for several minutes until golden brown. Be careful not to let the Nutella run out of the croissant! ENJOY…with lots of napkins!

World Nutella Day February 6th, 2007. My Favorite Day is coming. Well I like Groundhog Day too!

What can you do with Nutella….well anything I believe. If you haven’t tried Nutella, then run to your favorite grocery store, purchase some, smear it on a bagel or croissant, toast, bread, or even just on a spoon……Yummy!

Recently I took some crusty Italian bread, smeared it with Nutella and sliced strawberries, then grilled it in my new panini machine….and when I took it out to enjoy the first bite….I was in Heaven. The taste of warm Nutella and stawberries is amazing!

So if you haven’t tried it already please join in the celebrating the day. If you have a recipe to share…please feel free to send it to me! Ciao!
