It is World Nutella Day. This is true, because bloggers, Sara and Michelle from Ms Adventures in Italy, and Bleeding Espresso have declared it to the world. Check out: World Nutella Day!

If you are already familiar with this delicious chocolate-hazelnut spread, I don't need to explain the smooth creaminess that makes this a wonderful ingredient. Even though I am nut a big chocolate fan, I do love this combination in panna cotta, cookies, cakes and tortes.

To celebrate the festivities, I made up a VERY simple way Nutella dessert.

Nutella Mousse

1 t. powdered gelatin
3 T. water
1/2 c. Nutella (I used only 1/4 c. for caloric reasons)
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. Cool Whip (I know..., but I was watching calories!)

Put water in a small saucepan, and sprinkle gelatin over it. Let it sit for a minute or two. Heat over medium until gelatin is melted. Remove from heat. Measure Nutella into a medium bowl. Whisk together Nutella and warm gelatin mixture. Add cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip, and stir until combined. Spoon into 4 dessert cups or glasses, and chill for two hours.

HEAVENLY!

Oh yum! I LOVE Nutella! I don't dare have it in the house too often because I eat it right out of the jar!

But maybe for Valentine's Day.....
