It's World Nutella Day!!!

World Nutella Day. Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Shelley from At Home in Rome solemnly declare February 6th "World Nutella Day" - a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella. Make your favorite dish or experiment with a new one! Posts are welcome through February 6th, 2007 - the round-up will be made on February 7. Complete details are available here

Here is what y'all need to know about one of my favorite food items. I make this easy kinda dessert...sounds odd but it is tasty. Kinda hard to take a snap of melting ice cream, not that good of a photo person or not that good at thinking ahead or both. I did this during the SUPER BOWL so was somewhat distracted - but oh so happy the Colts WON!!!

But here ya go: Pineapple - Vanilla Ice Cream - Nutella Drizzle

Pour off the juice from a can of sliced pineapple, heat the syrup and add about a 1/4 cup of brown sugar. While that is cooking down, heat the pineapple slices in a skillet with a bit of butter. No this is not low calorie whatsoever. Put the pineapple in the cooked down syrup to coat the pieces, then transfer to your serving dish put a scoop or two of ice cream, I used vanilla, drizzle your nutella over that, add a squirt of whipped cream and a crushed walnut. Voila!

Nutella is definitely food for the gods - my boyfriend's roommate made some croissants yesterday and I completely slathered them with it...heaven!
