I know, I know, February 5, 2012 is Super Bowl Sunday. If you would like some football food recipes, the good folks at Allrecipes.com have a variety of recipes, menus and party planning tips for you to check out. But, more pressing matters involving chocolate are dictating what this post is all about.

It was only a couple of months ago that I tasted Nutella for the first time. I was given a jar of the chocolate-hazelnut spread and it sat on a shelf, forgotten for weeks. Then, one evening, I wanted just a taste of “something”. You know what it’s like to want “something”. All you want and need is a taste.

Then I remembered “The Jar”.

I took a spoon, found the jar and had a taste. I will admit my first thought was “OOOHHH! MY! GAAWWD! This tastes like a melted milk chocolate bar!”

I will be generous and say the jar lasted two weeks.

It’s also the only jar I’ve ever had because I don’t need that kind of temptation in the house again. But, that doesn’t mean that there are other Nutella fans who can’t control themselves. Maybe. This day is for you.

February 5, 2012 is World Nutella Day and there is a site dedicated to you! Naturally, there are recipes. They have 700 (yes, as in hundred) on their site!
