Celebrate World Nutella Day with Nutella Chocolate Fudge Brownies, Nutella S'mores, Nutella Hot Fudge Pudding Cake, and Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Sticky Buns—my latest concoction!
World Nutella Day 2012 fell on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5th. Since I wasn't able to participate last year, I decided to try and whip something up this time. The timing couldn't have been better as it also fell on the day I was baking the first recipe with Tuesday's with Dorie, so I was in the baking mode! The cookbook the group is using for the first recipe is "Baking with Julia" by Dorie Greenspan, but that's another story coming tomorrow!
What is World Nutella Day?
World Nutella Day is a day set aside every year to celebrate and enjoy eating Nutella. You know the stuff! The silky smooth and sinfully sweet chocolate hazelnut spread that's a narcotic to some people—something that can't be stopped!
According to NutellaDay.com, "World Nutella Day was created in 2007 when Sara Rosso, an American blogger living in Italy, thought that there were many days in the year but no day set aside to appreciate Nutella." Sara then recruited a few friends to join in the fun, and Nutella Day was born.
This is from their site, "Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso solemnly declare Sunday, February 5th “World Nutella Day 2012? – a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella."

I used the remaining dough for White Loaves (page 81-82) in the Tuesday's with Dorie recipe yesterday. They came out very good for an everyday sweet treat. I would definitely use the dough again for these Nutella Sticky Buns, although I would rather use my own sweet dough for these delicious gems.
Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Sticky Buns Ingredients:
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 Tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup pure Vermont syrup
- 1 Tablespoon liquid or granular soy lecithin, optional

Using the ingredients listed above, continue to follow the directions for my Maple Cinnamon Rolls: Soft Homemade Sticky Buns with Icing on Suite101. Unfortunately, Suite's one year copyright prevents me from including the entire recipe right now.
Leave out the cinnamon in the Suite101 recipe and also in the Sticky Goo ingredients... unless of course you love cinnamon, in which case you should definitely try it! Follow the rest of the directions and you'll have about 10-12 of the best and sweetest Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Sticky Buns ever!
