I have a jar of Nutella. What is it and what do I do with it? It is sort of chocolaty.

Oh, you have a jar of deliciousness! It's hazelnut butter mixed with chocolate. Smear it on graham crackers. Use it to top cupcakes. Ice rice krispy treats with it. Eat it straight from the jar with a spoon. I've eaten it as a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich. Yum
Nutella? Delish! Its a smooth chocolate spread made with hazelnuts for good measure. Its very popular in Europe and over here (England) its traditionally enjoyed on toast. Shellee is right, it does go very well with peanut butter!

History - Nutella®, in its original form, was first created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, cocoa was in short supply because of rationing due to World War II, so chocolate was very limited.
So Mr. Ferrero used hazelnuts, which are plentiful in the Piedmont region of Italy (northwest), to extend the chocolate supply.
Nutella is great for dipping cookies, fruit, pretzels, chips and you can pour it between layers of cake before you frost. It is great on ice cream and even a little in your coffee or hot chocolate. Just let your mind go wild and crazy and enjoy this great creamy chocolate
Make a pizza crust or buy one that is already made spread Nutella on it then top it off with berries.
