World Nutella Day 2011 Roundup Part 2

World Nutella Day*Remember the other half of the roundup is at co-host Sara’s Ms Adventures in Italy.*

Nutella lovers, last year I said you had outdone yourselves, but WHOA did you go nutty for the 5th anniversary of World Nutella Day!

If you were following @nutelladay on Twitter (2,400 followers), World Nutella Day (over 20,000 fans!) on Facebook, or at the Nutella Day Flickr pool, you already know that this past weekend has been crazy with Nutella, but today we’re here to talk about all the great recipes and tributes to Nutella you sent in.

Please consider sharing the roundups on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, etc., especially if you’ve participated and are included — any and all spreading of World Nutella Day love is much appreciated! Remember recipes from *all* World Nutella Days (about 500 recipes plus this year’s soon to be added) can be found at

In case you missed it, Sara whipped up a Flourless Nutella Chocolate Cake for the occasion, and I contributed this Nutella Spice Cake with cinnamon and peperoncino:

Now to the rest of the roundup; thanks so much to everyone who participated in World Nutella Day!

First, let’s start off with a special mention of Jennifer at The Onyx Plate, who had an entire Nutella celebration — this is a homemade cupcake stand filled with Nutella goodies, and Jennifer also made my Banana Nutella Brownies from last year. Woohoo!

OK, moving on to all the other wonderful contributions; I do apologize there’s not more color commentary, effective organization, or other bells and whistles, but we wanted to make sure the roundup got out today with all the important details, i.e., Entrant name, blog, and submission.
