Especially if you love having these often, you can save oodles of money making your own!
Have you tried the Nutella Hazelnut spread? Nutella is mixed with skim milk and cocoa and it is great when spread on celery stalks. The celery softens and lightens the taste of the Nutella and you can make snack size chunks for party platters. It is less fattening than Nutella on toast and easier to eat.
Getting your money's worth from Nutella! Add some ice-cream to your nearly empty jar of chocolate spread. That way, you are surely getting every penny's worth!
I am looking for a recipe that appeared in Woman's World magazine around the end of Feb. or beginning of Mar. for double or triple chocolate cheesecake that used Nutella.

Can anyone give me suggestions for using Nutella?

I've been using it as a small treat by dipping soda crackers in it with a small amount of nutella on and enjoying a small nibble.
My kids love it when I buy the store crescent rolls and unroll them individually, spread nutella on them, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips, roll them up as directed and bake. I think I bake them a little longer than the directions say, but I just check on them frequently until they look golden. This is our version of choc. crescents. It is a special treat at my house, usually for the first day of school's after school snack. Enjoy.
Go to foodnetwork.com, type in nutella recipes. Offers a variety of recipes.
Either food.com or allrecipes.com have a great recipe for nutella cake. I made it for my son's birthday and it was a huge hit! Absolutely delicious.
Make filling for pairs of plain cookies or crackers,sandwiching the Nutella between them. Fill cake layers, make cupcakes, hollow out a center hole 1/2 way in center of cake, fill with Nutella, put the reserved cake bit back on top and ice the cupcake. I would even try using the Nutella to marbleize a white layer cake or pound cake mix. Ice plain cookies on the outside too and add sprinkles; use in s'mores in place of chocolate.
I like Nutella and peanut butter sandwiches. Sometimes I add a little bit of honey and/or sliced bananas. Depending on my mood, I either eat them as-is, or I pan fry them like you would grilled cheese.
Use Nutella like you would use Peanut Butter. I make sandwiches, put it on pancakes, toast and just eat it right from the jar by the spoonfuls. Nutella is made from Hazelnuts where Peanut Butter is made from Peanuts.
I spread on chocolate covered graham crackers, then put a scoop of coffee ice cream on one and top with the other. A wonderful ice cream sandwich. Good enough for company!
Make your own: one can sweetened condensed milk, 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, 1 stick of butter, melt in microwave 40 second intervals stirring until smooth. Add 1 tsp vanilla. To make it "Nutella" add 1/2 tsp hazelnut poweder. Mmmm.
Nutella can be melted in micro & poured on ice cream too! Yum!
