Today is World Nutella Day organized by Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso.

Some days before Christmas I got a Chüechli-Blech from Betty Bossi. When Ci informed me about World Nutella Day I knew immediately I would bake some Nutella rolls in this pan for the event.

Nutella Rolls for World Nutella Day

For the rolls I made half of my favorite Challah dough and for the filling I used Nutella, what else? ;-)
