I have not tried it yet, but what i have read here it is probably just as well. I may not be able to control myself.

I once made a recipe using Nutella that I had seen on the Food Network. Take two slices of pound cake..spread nutella on one piece...cover with sliced strawberries....cover with the 2nd slice...heat up in a panini press or George Foreman. Veryyy delicious!

Thank you! I need to be saved from further sugar addictions.

I found small, individual trial sized Cost Plus. I can buy just enough to satisfy my craving...well almost. It's not enough to blow my calories!
I saw it on sale recently but VERY WISELY didn't fall prey to the lure. It's creamed sugar and very, very dangerous. Bring it into the house only if you are thinking of having an excuse to BLOW YOUR DIET PLAN! It's the devil in a jar! Hope this will be memorable and helpful to someone.

Oh how i LOVE Nutella. It reminds me of vacationing in Europe... croissants and Nutella for breakfast. SO HEALTHY. hahaha i wish!
I tried Nutella for the first time about a month or two ago and LOVED it. It's a great occasional treat. I eat it on toast for the most part or with fruit. As others have already said though, it contains a lot of sugar so don't go overboard with it!
We sadly discovered it in bulk at Costco. I have been good and only eat it every once in a while with a light smear on Van's whole wheat waffles. But it solves so many cravings and usually gets me to my requires fat and carb intake needed for the day.
I have never tried Nutella but believe I should stay away from it after some of these comments!

Luckily I don't like chocolate all that much so can usually pass it up. But I do really like it with fruit, specifically bananas and strawberries.

I cannot keep nutella in the house. Once the jar is opened, I eat it until it's gone. My older daughter is the same way. I'm thinking that hypoglycemic people (we both are) can't control themselves around nutella. Definitely way too much sugar in it.
I think there is also a SparkRecipe calling for almonds and chocolate, which is even healthier than the recipe I've linked to above, but for some reason, I can't find it in the recipe database! If I come across it again, I'll be sure to post it here. Could've sworn SP_STEPF posted it, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

my kids have Nutella & PB sandwiches all the time. They have tried it on toast but don't like it.

Love the stuff! I add it to peanut butter on my kid's sandwiches. I also eat it myself: 1 tbsp spread on 2 Eggo Nutri Grain frozen waffles with either sliced banana or sliced strawberries (made into a sandwich).
I also make my own version: 1 cup natural peanut butter + 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips (or vegan alternative). Very good and my kids love it too!
I have it on toast or a wrap with so many different things: jam, banana, coconut, peanut butter....drool. On tea biscuits or stone wheat thins...tastes just like a chocolate covered pretzel, or as a dip for fruit.
It does have A LOT of added sugars, so be sure to limit and make sure you're having it as a treat, rather than trying to get any nutritional benefits from it.
