This has to be one of our favourite world days... It's World Nutella Day! Enjoy this delish day with our recipe for Nutella hot chocolate. 

Nutella, which is one of Ireland's favourite hazelnut and chocolate spreads, is manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero (who also make Ferrero Rocher, Tic Tacs and Kinder products) and was first introduced in 1965.

The main ingredients of the delicious spread are sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts and cocoa solids. As palm oil has recently come under fire for its environmental impact, the Ferrero company has committed to finding a more environmentally sustainable way to produce the spread.

If you love Nutella as much as we do, you should try out this delicious hot chocolate – it will warm you up on a cold day, as well as giving you a big hit of that fantastic hazelnut flavour.
