Jenn, the Leftover Queen just posted a cupcake that contained dates and Nutella. You know, that chocolate spread in a jar that you secretly eat spoonfuls of? Yeah, that choocolate spread.
Not to be left out, the Greeks also have their own brand out in the market, called Merenda. While in Greece, I’ve tried both versions and I can’t seem to taste the difference. When in Greece…eat Merenda right?
Greeks will often smear Merenda on slices of bread or have in a dessert crepe with ground hazelnuts and that’s how I like it best.
I’m not a about to set up a creperie but I came close to recreating the joy in eating a crepe with Nutella and nuts.
I simply made a Merenda grilled sandwich! February 5th has been declared World Nutella Day and I pay homage to the chocolate spread with my grilled Merenda sandwich.
Catch the round up how others have been enjoying Nutella at Ms. Adventures in Italy.

- Place a non-stick fry pan on your stove and pre-heat on medium.
- Spread butter on both slices of bread and then spread a good coast of Merenda on the inside of each slice.
- Sprinkle some crushed hazelnuts on the chocolate spread and then smack your sandwhich together and grill for about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
- Cut your sandwich in half and enjoy the oozing goodness of your grilled Merenda sandwich.
