1964 was a big, big year. Mary Poppins hit the big screen, Beatlemania infiltrated households worldwide, Muhammad Ali won his first worldwide heavyweight championship, and (perhaps most importantly) a chocolate hazelnut spread from Italy hit the market—NUTELLA.

Naturally, the deliciousness that is Nutella was instantly recognized by the masses, as it remains to this day, having secured an eternal spot in hearts and kitchens everywhere. Surely this special treat needs no accompaniment or additions, standing perfectly irresistible on its own, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little extra fun with it. Here are 5 totally drool-worthy ideas to do with this classic staple!

1. NUTELLA-COVERED STRAWBERRIES

Yes, yes, we know: chocolate-covered strawberries are delicious all on their own. BUT, with Nutella? Can you even imagine?! Here’s a tip: after covering strawberries in chocolate, place in fridge and allow the Nutella to harden up a bit. Enjoy cold for a sinful and refreshing treat!

2. NUTELLA MILKSHAKE

I know what you are thinking—how have I never thought of this before?? Next time you’re in the mood for a creamy shake, simply add a few scoops of Nutella to your blender! Couldn’t be more simple and the payoff couldn’t be more worth it.

3. BACON NUTELLA

Why limit yourself to the oh-so-trendy chocolate-covered bacon? Let’s think outside of the box here! Simply take your favorite crispy bacon, smash and chop it into the finest pieces possible, and mix it into your Nutella before using it as you normally would. The salty complements the sweet and the texture—just trust us, it’s on point.

4. DIY NUTELLA—YES, IT’S POSSIBLE

Why make Nutella yourself when the original is just so perfect? That’s a good question. All we can say is when you make something yourself, it’s healthier right? (Or at least it’s easier to pretend that it is). So make your own Nutella, indulge in ignorant bliss, and eat it with reckless abandon! Recipe can be found here!

5. NUTELLA BREAKFAST SANDWICH

Everyone loves a good breakfast sandwich right? So why not create one with the single most-loved thing on earth? Simply use your bread of choice (bagel, croissant, plain old bread!), spread with Nutella, bacon, and even an egg! It’s not as weird as it sounds, so prepare for your mind to be blown and your breakfast sandwich experience elevated beyond belief.
