World Nutella Day, 2009

Today is World Nutella Day! This event is hosted by Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso.

Since we recently had a nutella shake at Flip, I thought it would be perfect to recreate it today. Hubs has mentioned this shake at least once a day since we ate it. We had milk and nutella already, so we ran out and bought some ice cream and mini marshmallows. Hazelnuts are near impossible to find at our grocery store, so I skipped those. I kept it a secret from hubs, as to surprise him.

We don’t have one of those cool mini-blowtorches, so I used the broiler to toast the marshmallows. I sprayed a teeny bit of non-stick spray onto some foil, so the marshmallows wouldn’t stick. I watched them diligently as they toasted, because I’m notorius for burning things under the broiler. Then I blended the other ingredients, topped it with the marshmallows, and it was ready.

Hubs’ pronouncement: Just as good as the original, even without the toasted hazelnut bits.
