I was 15 when I made my maiden voyage to Europe when we went over to visit my stepfather’s family in Germany. At the time, Nutella wasn’t available in the States and my first taste, spread onto crusty bread of some variety, was like heaven. For years, before it was widely available here, our family in Germany would smuggle it across the pond on visits or send over a shipment around Christmas, and my sister and I would hoard those precious jars like they were filled to the very top with pure, molten gold. So, as you can see, my love affair with Nutella is real and it is deep, which might explain why as the weather is getting colder and the sunshine less plentiful I am all about all the Nutella things. Today I’m dropping 12 out of this world Nutella recipes, right here, right now. You’re welcome. Or, I’m sorry. Whichever.
