New York-based Dominique Ansel Bakery, the creator of the Cronut, has created Nutella Cronut holes that it will be giving away for free in honor of Nutella's 50th anniversary on Monday.

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. 

The delectable mini-Cronuts are filled with Nutella and dusted with sugar on the outside.

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.
