Nutella Banana and Walnut Pastry Purses

February 5, 2011

Join in the fun today February 5, for “World Nutella Day”.  There are a lot of Nutella recipes flying around today so it is hard to decide what to make next!  These little beauties I found on Elaine’s website at  You must visit her site for some fantastic recipes in all categories.  I am really loving these today though.  I have two obstacles to cope with (not a problem).  I could not find hazelnuts in any form and would have loved them but the walnuts did the trick for me.  I also can’t seem to pinch these guys enough, guess I will practice, practice, practice.  Or maybe I just loaded them too much, I like it.  You can also visit and get great recipes for all things Nutella.  If you are a Twitter Fan follow them both @ItalianDish and @NutellaDay as well.
