Happy Nutella Day!

Mmmmmmm, my favorite way to eat Nutella is with a jar and a spoon!  Everything else is just a distraction.
But in honor of World Nutella Day , I melted some Nutella with a little heavy whipping cream and dipped fresh fruit in it.

Strawberries would have been my first choice but I didn't have any strawberries when I realized it was World Nutella Day.  It turned out oranges are luscious.  Grapes are ok, cookies too sweet, but the unexpected burst of juicy, tangy orange following the first soft, smooth, melty Nutella sensation. . . I cried.

World Nutella Day was started in 2007 by Ms Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso.  Thank you!  My adventures in using Nutella beyond my teaspoon are about to begin.
