World Nutella Day was created to celebrate the delicious hazelnut spread on Feb. 5, but you can use the gluten-free recipes throughout the year. Nutella is gluten-free, and Ferrero states there is no risk of cross contamination during the manufacturing process. Although you can enjoy the spread straight from the jar with a big spoon, you may want to try these ideas.


According to Ferrero, Nutella is made with hazelnuts, skim milk and cocoa, so gluten is not an issue. In addition, the company confirms that it is careful about avoiding cross contamination with the protein. The hazelnut spread can be used in a variety of recipes ranging from milkshakes to cookies. It is versatile, and easy to incorporate into multiple desserts.
