Any day could be Nutella Day in my home, but since today has been decreed World Nutella Day, we have an excuse to serve up some yummy Nutella recipes, and celebrate its hazlenutty, chocolatey goodness even more. We’ve mined our site for some of our favorite recipes over the years that let you enjoy this creamy spread, and even a recipe to make your own homemade version if you find yourself without a jar on hand.
