A jar of hazelnut chocolate butter, like Nutella or Nocciolata, is always scrape-worthy, even if there's next to nothing left. But no matter what tool you use, be it a spoon, spatula, or index finger, bits of precious, chocolatey nut butter are sure to remain glued to the sides. Instead of resigning the jar to the bin, make hot chocolate instead.
Not that we think there needs to be an excuse to eat Nutella, but if one exists, then we're certainly going to take advantage of it! Today, Feb. 5, happens to be World Nutella Day, and the only appropriate way to celebrate with your kids is in the kitchen. Here are five sinfully sweet treats that incorporate the chocolate-hazelnut goodness. Eat up, and enjoy!
The only way I can explain this oversight is that perhaps I was too busy gorging myself on the treat in my typical manner, which is to say I was spooning it jar to mouth — repeat ad nauseum.

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to make sweet treats for the ones we love, and since my love is a chocoholic, I get to try out a couple of new chocolate recipes every February. This month: a decadent Nutella pound cake that will make your sweetheart swoon.
Traditionally a pound cake is exactly that: one pound each of the essential ingredients — flour, sugar, eggs, and of course, butter. The cake is pretty easy to make even for a beginner baker, and the key is to never overmix the pound cake batter. You can either layer the Nutella and cake batter to create a swirled, marbled effect or fold the chocolate hazelnut spread into the cake batter entirely.
This is a dense cake, so use the toothpick trick to see if it is baked completely. Resist the urge to cut into the cake right away and be sure to let it cool for at least 20 minutes, otherwise the cake might start break apart as it cools. To serve, sprinkle with cocoa powder and pour a tall glass of cold milk. If you have a chocoholic or Nutella fiend in your life, keep reading for the recipe.
When the weather is hot, we love easy no-bake desserts! Here, Gabriela Une Vie Saine shares her favorite no-bake treat, an uncomplicated raspberry nutella pie.A decadent no-bake pie with Nutella and raspberries as the star ingredients!
Both the batter and the frosting have Nutella, and chopped toasted hazelnuts add a lovely texture and crunch to the cake. The best thing about this recipe is that the entire cake can be assembled up to three days in advance — you just have to make room for it in the fridge!
