As you may know, February 5 was World Nutella Day. I submitted my entry, a fried Nutella and banana sandwich with cinnamon sugar crust, but a comment on that entry inspired me to make a Nutella fruit dip. It’s basically a variation of this peanut butter dip, which I have made before and absolutely loved. I replaced the peanut butter with Nutella, omitted the brown sugar and added a pinch of salt instead.
It tastes amazing! We used apples to dip into it, but it would taste great with bananas and strawberries as well.
This is my bonus World Nutella Day recipe for all you Nutella-lovers!

Makes approx. 1/2 cup
3 tablespoons Nutella
3 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
pinch of salt
1/4 cup milk
Thoroughly mix Nutella, cream cheese and salt until no streaks of cream cheese remain. Mixture may be a little grainy-looking. Slowly add milk a bit at a time and stir until milk is thoroughly mixed in (you’ll need to mix for a while for it to come together). You should end up with a nice smooth, creamy dip for your fruit. Store in refrigerator. To soften up the dip after removing from the refrigerator, just stick it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds.
