Top 10 Uses for Nutella


NutellaNutella is a tasty spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk, and a hint of cocoa. It has no artificial colors or preservatives and can be used on just about anything.

Seriously, I could write about this stuff all day long. My mouth is watering just thinking about it, so let's talk about my favorite ways to use Nutella:

French Toast:  I love to surprise my kids by spreading a layer between two pieces of French toast. It's such a happy way to start the day.

Nutella and Peanut Butter Sandwiches: Everyone will want to eat two. At least.

Frosting: This recipe from Recipeczar is so easy to make and tastes a million times better than any pre-made frosting you bring home from the supermarket.

Dip Away: Apples served with a side of Nutella make a proper after-school or midday snack. You can try this with pretzels, too!

Croissants: Buy a package of store-bought croissant dough from the supermarket, unroll them, drop a spoonful of Nutella in the center, roll, and bake. Ooh la la!

S'mores: A new twist on an old favorite. Spread Nutella on two graham crackers, insert a roasted marshmallow, and devour.

Coffee: Slide a spoonful of Nutella into the bottom of your cup before you pour in your coffee. Stir and sip away.

Pizza: Spread Nutella on a pre-made pizza crust. Top with sliced fruit and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Ice Cream: Make your own ice cream sandwiches by layering slices of pound cake, Nutella, and vanilla ice cream. Wrap in plastic and freeze. It's perfectly acceptable to eat it on top of ice cream as well.

On a Spoon: There are days when nothing is quite as satisfying as a whopping spoonful of Nutella straight out of the jar all by itself.

This is just a taste of what you can do with Nutella. I didn't even get into the cheesecakes, cupcakes, banana breads, or brownie recipes that exist. Nutella can be found in most grocery stores, most likely near the peanut butter. Because, well, obviously.

I'd love some new ideas! What is your favorite way to eat Nutella?

Um, I'm afraid my favorite kind is the spoon. ;)

By the way, Rigoni Di Asiago makes an organic version they call "nocciolata." I tried some last week and it's every bit as good--maybe even better.

Nutella is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I remember when I went to Europe for a trip I was so excited to find little single serving packs of it at the stores!  Have you ever seen those?  They are so cute and the perfect Nutella fix when not at home!

I make crepes and drizzle it on top. Sometimes with strawberries in the crepes. Deliciousness
