I discovered Nutella yesterday and believe this could turn into a bad, bad thing. I bought some croissants and this morning for breakfast sliced one and smeared each half with Nutella. Now I am trying not to simply go get the jar of Nutella and a spoon ::::sigh::::

What else can I do with it?

  1. Love it!! Will be interested to see the suggestions. I use it on toast, and it is great on crepes. But I am sure there will be lots more suggestions for us to enjoy.

    1. Truffles. Melt 1 lb of good milk chocolate and stir in 1/2 cup of nutella. Let cool to room temperature and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. roll into 1 inch balls and dip into tempered dark chocolate.


      Make vanilla shortbread cookies. Sandwich nutella between them and dip half or the whole thing in tempered dark chocolate.

      I love nutella too.

        1. Just had this last weekend at Notti Bianche in D.C.: Sugar coated donut holes filled with Nutella and hazelnut gelato in a small bowl of chilled espresso. (also topped w/ whipped cream & chocolate pcs.) Great combination.

            Here's a similar one: A dollop of Nutella inside aebleskiver!

          2. I cannot open a jar of Nutella. Once opened it will soon be gone. I mostly eat it straight up. I had it on crepes and they were by far the best crepes I had ever had. So far I have only had the "Nutella" brand. I know that Zinngermans sells a chocolate hazelnut spread, but it is so pricey, I have not tried it yet, although one day I will order it. They make it sound like heaven.

              Nutella on crepes w/ bananas IS the best!!

                Ultimate crepe I used to get in Montreal: nutella and bananas and strawberries, and just a mist of grand marnier. I think these were all the toppings the crepe place had.

                I think they put crack in it -- my daughter has only had it once and it is all she talks about. I don't dare try it myself....
