Nutella lovers, I have treat for you! I imagine that at this point, the only people in America who don't love Nutella are the people who haven't tried it yet. I first had Nutella in college. My husband went on a trip to Germany and returned with a jar of the delicious spread. I guess it took Europe by storm before making its big splash in the States. I was a little leery of trying trying it at first (hazelnut??) but I did. And it was love at first bite.
For whatever reason, I don't seem to have Nutella around much. Perhaps it is because I would probably be constantly dipping my fingers in the jar if I did. But whenever I come across recipes that include Nutella, I am quick to save them. And I have plenty of them! I have been waiting for quite a while to make the Nutella swirl doughnuts. Fortunately, I finally got around to trying it. I knew when I saw the recipe that if I was going to splurge on Nutella that I would have to make this a "makeover" recipe. And that's exactly what I did. But trust me, these don't taste like a makeover recipe!
