World Nutella Day 2010
Yay!! Today is World Nutella Day!!
I’ve been thinking about today for a long, long time and I’m so happy it’s finally here. I thought a lot about what I wanted to do this year for World Nutella Day. Last year, I made Mom & Me’s Nutella & Peanut Butter Cookies which incorporated Nutella into a recipe I’ve made many times over. So this year, I decided I wanted to do something I’ve never really done before – make cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes, but Cupcakes with Nutella Butter Cream Frosting. I’m not going to pretend that I made the cupcakes from scratch (it was a cake mix) and I can’t take credit for the frosting recipe (found it here).
My brother and I made the cupcakes over the weekend. We were both sure we had cupcake sprinkles or decorations of some sort, but none could be found. The cupcakes looked great, they tasted great, but something was definitely missing. That’s when my ever so talented and innovative mother stepped in and suggested we drizzle some Nutella over the cupcakes. So we did, and the results were exactly what these yummy and easy to make cupcake treats needed.
I’d like to say that I have one of these yummy cupcakes to eat today, but who are we kidding, there was no way they would have lasted. I am really glad that the frosting recipe worked out, though. There were a few recipes floating around on the internet and I have to say that this recipe worked out nicely. At some point, I might experiment with some of the other ones I found, but this recipe is definitely a keeper.
Now, off to see how the lovely hostess’ of World Nutella Day – Sara Rosso (Ms. Adventures in Italy) and Michelle (Bleeding Espresso) are celebrating, as well as everyone else out there in the blogosphere.
Have you had some Nutella today? If not, what are you waiting for?
