Nutella Cream Cheese Bagels

nutella bagels

Every morning, I’m first to wake up. And the first thing I do is head to the kitchen and start to prepare our breakfasts and lunches for the day. This morning my son followed me into the  kitchen and spotted a jar of Nutella and a package of whole wheat bagels. He immediately requested Nutella on a toasted bagel instead of his usual cereal and fruit.

I find happiness in the little tasks of being a mom, like making and sharing food with my son. Making my son’s ideas for meals come to life gives me so much joy. So I quickly mixed together some softened cream cheese and Nutella to make this amazing bagel spread. I added some sliced strawberries and it made the perfect breakfast paired with fresh orange juice.

Those bagels were so good in fact, I decided to spread that delicious happiness to some friends. So I combined some more cream cheese and Nutella, cut up some fresh strawberries and picked up some more whole wheat bagels and took everything to my husband’s office for a breakfast treat. They were so excited and loved the cream cheese Nutella combination just as much as we did.

Nutella® hazelnut spread is a happy start to every day! It’s so versatile and can be enjoyed on so many things like whole-wheat toast, waffles, pancakes, croissants, bagels, English Muffins, graham crackers, crepes, fruits and more. You’re only limited by your imagination!   On the Nutella® Tumblr page, you can share pictures of you enjoy Nutella, get recipes and participate in spreading the happy!

There’s nothing quite like Nutella®. Its uniquely delicious taste comes from roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and cocoa. And did you know that Nutella is gluten free and has no artificial colors or preservatives? And have you heard of Nutella&Go!? It’s one of my favorite snacks! It’s a single-serve convenient snack pack with Nutella and breadsticks for dipping anytime, anywhere! Nutella can be found grocery stores, warehouse clubs and mass merchandisers, and is generally found near the peanut butter and sweet spreads section. Nutella&Go can usually be found at the front of the store- end caps or at register.

Nutella® hazelnut spread is a happy start to every day! Pick up a jar of Nutella in the spreads aisle and enjoy it with whole wheat toast, waffles, pancakes, strawberries, bananas and many other foods. Nutella. Spread the Happy™.
