Nutella Biscotti

Did you know that February 05 was National Nutella Day?

Some things in life make sense.

How did we celebrate National Nutella Day?
Our way of celebrating?
Baking with Nutella.
And my son and I decided to bake something together.
I wanted biscotti.
He wanted cookies.
I won.
We also had grilled Nutella sandwiches with blueberries.

The Nibble  lists all the possible National Food and Drink days.
I love National Food Days.
Thank you.

mmm....Nutella Biscotti.
These were so good.
I drizzled Nutella on the tops of the biscotti.
I also spread Nutella onto one of the sides of the biscotti.
None of us wanted to stop eating them.
But I can't just feed my kids biscotti and Nutella, so I had to put a stop to it.

Thank you to Piping Dreams  for introducing me to these wonderful chocolaty treats.
