To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Nutella on Monday, the inventor of the Cronut has merged his creation with the sweet hazelnut spread to create a mouth-watering must-have.
For one day only, the New York bakery run by pastry chef Dominique Ansel will release Nutella Cronut holes, a miniature version of Cronuts, his popular croissant-doughnut hybrid. Filled with Nutella and dusted with sugar, the bite-sized Cronut holes will be available for free at the Broadway Pedestrian Plaza in Manhattan from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday.
Ansel will be making 2,000 of the delicacies and handing them out himself.
Given the famously-long lines that have regularly formed at his bakery for Cronuts since their debut last year, Monday promises to bring another salivating crowd for a rare treat.
Ansel, who debuts a new flavor for regular Cronuts every month, has no plans to add the Nutella Cronut holes to his regular menu of offerings, although massive demand could always change that approach.
