Happy World Nutella Day!
When you talk about shopping at Costco, everyone laughs and says, “Do you really need 6 packages of toilet paper? Or 3 cartons of milk?” Just like with 20 pounds of rice, no one says, “Two jars of Nutella? Do you really need two jars?” Ever. Because obviously.
I joke that the tagline for DailyWaffle is “Home of the Nutella Fudgesicle.” It’s my most popular post, a Zoku pop recipe that went viral (thanks peeps on Pinterest!). Just two ingredients, hazelnut milk and Nutella, you can either freeze it into a popsicle or heat it up for a cup of hot chocolate. And if you choose to spike it, well, that’s between you and your Nutella. Any which way, if there’s one made up food day I have to honor, it’s World Nutella Day.
At the end of a long day, some people pour themselves two fingers of bourbon or a glass of wine. I say sandwich some Nutella between two shortbread cookies, preferably Trefoils. The good news is, it’s Girl Scout cookie season, so there are boxes and boxes that can be yours for the taking. Nilla wafers aren’t bad either.
