I've got a HUGE jar of nuetlla as a gift. As much as I love Nutella, I honetly think I will have a heart attack from finishing this jar on its own. Any suggestions for recipes using Nutlla? thanks!

    Basically replace in all sweet recipes that use peanut butter.

    Nutella rice krispies treats. Add in a glob right before you toss in the cereal. Maybe also cut back on the marshmallows some too.

    Nutella fudge. Lots of recipes found via Google.

    As an ingredient in cakes, cookies, as fillings--inject some into cupcakes, make a cinnamon roll but use nutella instead. As a hot drink--stir into warm milk.

      Nutella with Nigella.

      That will give me something to think about for a while...

        Hazelnut ice cream with a nutella swirl.

        And invite me over.

            I once made chocolate rugelach and filled them with Nutella and nuts. Very tasty. I wish I could offer you the recpie, but I'm sure there's one floating around out there.

              My favorite: peanut butter and nutella sandwich, toasted.

              My wife's favorite Nutella recipe I call "Nutella on a spoon."

                I have a slight modification to your wife's recipe - substitute your forefinger for the spoon. I know, I know, it's less than hygenic but when I was a kid, that's what I did and I still can't see it tasting better any other way (plus it discourages people from sharing your stash).

                if you don't have crepes, make a nutella sandwich heated up in a panini press (or in a pan like a grilled cheese) on thin baguette slices.

                  My love of nutella knows no bounds. That jar would be gone in short order in my pantry. I fill alfajores with them, but it on toast, also make banana hazelnut empanadas.

                  Full disclosure: the recipe is available below via my food blog

                    Use it for fondue.
                    I just read an article about it in Flavors magazine, a publication about the food/restaurant/wine scene in Atlanta.

                      Nutella Mexican wedding cookies look darn good- I might use this recipe for a cookie swap this week.

                        I made these tonight (cookie swap is tomorrow). They're pretty good- not overly sweet, but pretty dry. Part of what I love about Nutella is the creamy texture, and that gets lost in these cookies. But it's a really easy recipe so if you have a ton of Nutella to use up, it's not a bad option.

                        Nutella spread on a store-bought oatmeal cookie is the best mouse-trap bait in the world.

                        No really.

                          I make a peanut butter cookie subbing the Nutella for the peanut butter, but adjusting with a bit more shortening & less sugar. Plus cookies freeze well so you can save some for when the Nutella binge is over

                            Jamie Oliver has one, it a bread stuffed with nutella and bananas. I made it once and it was really good. I think it might be on the Food Network's website. It's called breakfast bread or something like that.

                                I was going to say that! Crepes! With sliced banas and whipped cream!

                                  Drop the whipped cream and add some Grand Marnier and you've got one happy dropping-that-no-trans-fat-rule girl!

                                  Crepes with strawberries! Or smear some along the side of a cold banana.
