Who loves Nutella?

I do! I do! Hmm that lovely chocolatey hazelnut spread. Who doesn't love it smothered on toast or straight from the jar? Turns out people love Nutella so much that 2 bloggers decided to dedicate a whole day to it! The 5th February is World Nutella day! I found this out last night, luckily in time for me to go out and buy a jar last night so I could be ready to join in the celebrations.

I wanted to make something simple and easy that didn't need any fancy ingredients, since all I had was the store cupboard essentials and nutella! So I stumbled across this recipe in a chocolate recipe book I had and it looked perfect. They are chocolate melting moments, sandwiched together with nutella. The recipe uses icing sugar and cornflour which gives it an immensely soft crumbly texture, that really does just melt in the mouth. Yum.

chocolate melting moments with nutella


125g butter
2 tablespoons icing sugar
3/4 cup of plain flour
2 tablespoons cornflour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
a little bit of milk


1. Mix together the butter and the icing sugar until soft and fluffy

2. Sift in the dry ingredients in 2 goes until you get a smoth paste.

3. Add a little milk to the mixture to make it smoother - this will make it easier to pipe.

4. Pipe them onto agreased baking tray and put in an oven preheated to gas mark 5/350c for approximately 10 minutes, or until firm.

5. Leave to cool, then sandwich together with nutella!


  1. Wow, I had no idea there was a world nutella day. I love nutella. I guess I know what I'm having for dessert tonight.

  8. These look lovely!!! So cute! I've not had nutella in a long time, I guess I worry that if I buy a jar, I'll just eat it all in one go!
