February 5th is World Nutella Day. Instead of providing a common recipe to use Nutella (crepes or cupcakes) we thought we would step outside the box and share a creative and tasty use of the popular chocolate hazelnut spread.

Nutella Ravioli

Prep Time: 25 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes | Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 16 wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten to blend
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 16 fresh mint leaves
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • Granulated sugar, for dredging
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap. Place 1 wonton wrapper on the work surface. Brush the edges of the wrapper lightly with egg. Spoon 1 tablespoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread into the center of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper diagonally in half over the filling and press the edges of the wrapper to seal. Place the ravioli on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers, egg, and chocolate-hazelnut spread.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Add enough oil to a heavy large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F.

Working in batches, carefully add the ravioli to the hot oil and cook until they are golden brown, about 45 seconds per side. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the ravioli to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Then, transfer the cooked ravioli to another baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven while frying the remaining ravioli. (The fried ravioli can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cool them completely, then cover and refrigerate. Before serving, place them on a baking sheet and rewarm in a preheated 375 degrees F oven just until they are heated through, about 7 minutes.)

Spray the top side of the mint leaves very lightly with nonstick spray. Working with 1 leaf at a time, dredge the coated side of the leaves in sugar to coat lightly.

Arrange 2 fried ravioli on each plate. Dust the ravioli with powdered sugar. Garnish with the sugared mint leaves and serve.

The internet is full of fabulous facts about everything from current events to the history basket weaving. Because of this, as we research for our daily content on food trucks, food carts and street food, we stumble upon some items of knowledge that we just did not know. We have decided when these fun facts pop up, that we would share them with our readers in our section titled “Did You Know?”

For today’s Did You Know fun food facts we will look at Nutella.

The Facts: Nutella is a chocolate spread produced by the Italian company, Ferrero. It was first introduced in April 1964, Nutella is now sold in more than 75 countries.

  • The original Nutella started off as a block, rather than as a creamy paste.
  • In 1954 the hazelnut paste’s name was changed from “supercreama gianduja” to Nutella. This was due to an Italian law which prohibited the use of superlatives in product names.
  • February 5th is World Nutella Day.
  • The amount of Nutella produced worldwide in one day is equivalent to nearly three times the weight of the Statue of Liberty.
  • More than 70 million hazelnuts are used worldwide each day in the production of Nutella.
  • In each 13 oz. jar, there are more than 50 hazelnuts.
  •  The number of jars sold annually, if lined up, would wrap around the moon four times.
  • The recipe for Nutella varies from country to country. In Italy, Nutella contains less sugar than the French version.
