Nutella Stuffed Cookie Traybake

Happy World Nutella Day! With a household of Nutella lovers, I cannot allow a day in honouring this delicious spread to go by without some form of celebratory treat.  Since World Nutella Day falls on a Monday I got to baking on Sunday.  I needed a quick, easy but delicious recipe as we were also making one of our homemade Sunday lunches. I decided to make a Nutella stuffed cookie traybake.  Evan woke up to the smell of freshly made cookies. One taste and he immediately banned me from sharing this batch with anyone else!

An Italian pastry chef named Pietro Ferrero sought to overcome this shortage by combining hazelnuts, sugar and a small amount of cocoa This invention took the form of a block in the shape of a loaf of bread evolving into a spreadable form known as “Supercrema” in 1951. Supercrema was the precursor to “Nutella” which was launched in 1964. Chocolate Hazelnut Spread The traditional spread was a mixture containing approximately 71.5% hazelnut paste and 19.5% chocolate.  Nowadays however the hazelnut content is just 13% with the bulk of the ingredients being sugar and palm oil.  Sugar and palm oil may not sound all that appealing but this spread is so popular worldwide that factories around the world produce 1.35 million pounds of it every day! And 250,000 tons of Nutella are sold every year! Versatility of Nutella Nutella is a firm favourite in millions of homes worldwide, adding a touch of sweetness to a wide variety of dishes.
