Nutella, originally known as “gianduia”, was created by Pietro Ferrero during the World War II when chocolate was in shortage and to compensate for it, Pietro mixed hazelnuts in it. A simple concoction melted the hearts of millions and became an instant success.
This roller coaster of an addiction created by Hitler and Napoleon took the world by a storm. Over time, people from all over the world have invented new creations to keep up with the trend and it seems it will take a long time for this flavor to fade away.
The most popular Nutella dishes are:
1) Nutella Buns
Just a cooler version of a chocolate sandwich.
Take some brioche bread, flatten it out, smear nutella and chopped hazelnuts all over it. Roll it up and cut the bread in the form of buns. Cook it in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Eat them while they are hot to experience the best foodgasm ever.
2) Nutella Ice Cream
Perfect remedy for a sultry afternoon.
Just a normal ice cream made with an ice cream churner with an overload of nutella in it.
3) Nutella Covered Bacon
The perfect blend of sweet and savory.
Cook the bacon strips on a frying pan until they are curled up and crispy. Then coat them in nutella and allow them to cool down for a while.
4) Nutella & Strawberry Tarts
Little mouthfuls of deliciousness.
Make a pastry dough, roll it out into a desired shape and place it on a baking sheet. Create it in such a way that you have space to fill in the nutella. Bake it in the oven and once you remove it to cool down, place a strawberry on top to give it a tarty flavor.
5) Nutella Churros
Nutella (yum) + Churros (yum) = DOUBLE YUM.
All you need is some brown sugar, nutella, cinnamon, butter and eggs. Beat them all up and pour it in a piping bag. Squeeze out the batter at desirable lengths and into a hot frying pan full of oil. Cook them till they brown. Remove each and place them in a plate full of sugar that acts as coating.
