Today to celebrate the 5th of February we had a special recipe: the Hazelnut Nutellotti :D! Mouth-watering cookies made with only 3 ingredients (mmm to tell the truth we added one more to our recipe): Nutella, flour, eggs and chopped hazelnuts.
We have added the chopped hazelnuts to make the cookies more aromatic and to create a light consistency contrast: eating this cookies with a very soft dough you’ll appreciate the crunchy contrast of hazelnuts 🙂 . The name Nutellotti comes from Italian: it’s a contraption of Nutella and biscotti (which means cookies) 🙂 .
Don’t you know what holiday falls today? Today is World Nutella Day :D. This initiative was born in 2007, when Sara Rosso, an American blogger, decided to create a event to celebrate her favorite hazelnut cream 😀 . Now the initiative has reached fans all around the world who come together to share their love for Nutella. So, you can’t miss the Nutella Day.
If you try one of the recipes on the blog, take a photo and publish it on Instragam with the hashtag #fratelliaifornelli and tagging our profile @fratelliaifornelli.
