Spread the Love – Happy Nutella Day!

This luscious gianduia goodness has inspired prose, art and even a holiday and commemorative postage stamp, not to mention numerous recipes.

goodness of Ferrero’s crema gianduia”

• 1.5 shots of Frangelico liqueur

• 4 shots of milk

Drizzle Nutella into a martini glass and then spread some along the rim of the glass.  Dip the rim of the glass into the chopped hazelnuts and then proceed to chill the glass.

In a small sauce pan warm up the milk and dissolve the Nutella until it has turned into hot chocolate milk.  Allow to cool and pour into a shaker with the Bailey’s, Frangelico and ice.  Shake until well chilled, then gently pour into the chilled martini glass and enjoy.
