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!

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!

Yeah, I don't keep it in my house right now! My favorite thing to do with Nutella? Stuff it into a fresh croissant! Or in a crepe, and of course just eat it by the spoonful.

Love Nutella on crepes with bananas or strawberry jelly - also love sitting with a jar of it and a long spoon (wishful thinking :)!). I have to keep it out of the kitchen.

Love the stuff and cannot keep it around. I will eat the whole jar.

It IS to die for...and it WILL kill your diet! When I DO succumb, I have it on the equally evil shortbread.

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! emoticon
Hope this will be memorable and helpful to someone. emoticon

I so cannot keep Nutella in the house! I'm salivating thinking about it reading this thread but it's just safer for me not to bring that kind of thing home at all. I have no willpower!

I love a thin scrape on toast (the flavor is so powerful you don't need a lot). Also it's great as frosting on brownies when you're being a real glutton.

I've tried Nutella way too sweet for me. It wasn't bad when I needed some chocolate in a pinch for a recipe though~

Oh my gosh - this thread is making me crave nutella!

I do keep it in my cupboard at all times- but out of sight - and if I find myself craving chocolate, it's easy to eat a spoon by itself or spread it on a rice cake. Yummy!

Nutella really is amazing. I have been known to have it straight from the jar, but my preferred method of consumption is in a crepe with strawberries. So. Good.

Nutella is one of God's wonderful gift to humankind. Seriously, it's amazing. However, it must be eaten in small quantities as it can also be a diet killer.

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.

OMG - I love this! Of course, like the old saying, if it seems too good to be true - it IS! It is LOADED with sugar :(

Oh gosh, I love Nutella, but it can be an expensive, unhealthy habit. I found this delicious homemade recipe for chocolate peanut spread, which is just as good and possibly healthier.

smittenkitchen.com/2011/01/chocolate-peanu
t-spread-peanutella/


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.

I crave that stuff about once a year (my craving for this year is already over, luckily), and then, I eat it on toast. My sister eats it a lot, plain, with a spoon.

Love Nutella ... I've eaten it on graham crackers before as a snack. We don't eat it all the time though. Its a special treat!

When I get tired of peanut butter - I switch to almond butter. I buy it at the Bulk Barn. It has just enough different taste to make a difference.

Nutella is a red light food for our whole family. We eat it right out of the jar by the tablespoon. We rarely keep it in the house. It's too "dangerous"!

I love it! It has a chocolate/hazelnut flavor that is wonderful. I USED to use it for a filling in little french butter pastries LOL emoticon

Now, I choose not to eat it but still miss it.

I add a bit of hot water and stir to make a creamy drizzle for a bowl of strawberries or use 1 tbsp. of it with a huge apple sliced up.....Love it, but limit it....

I spread it on whole grain toast and use very little at a time. Top it with sliced strawberries or bananas and I'm more than satisfied and full until lunch.

Just discovered this guilty little pleasure, but I am going to use it as a dip for my apple wedges.

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!

Its not a health food despite any marketing campaigns.

its nearly all sugar.

So if you havent tried, save yourself a new addiction and dont!

It's delicious as a treat, but considering that it's used as the filling for Ferrero Rocher candies, I limit my consumption of it!

On the rare occasion that I do eat it, I eat it on oranges for dessert.

Excellent on whole grain toast...spread it on while the toast is still hot and it will melt all over so a little goes a long way.

YUMMM !!! emoticon

I just got so disgustd with peanut butter - nutella is a fabulous alternative when I'm craving a creamy snack. Because it has such a thick, lasting flavor a little bit goes a long way.

1-serving is 2T but if I spread it on toast I only use at most 1/2T - which is 1/4 a serving. If it's even that much. It really does go a long way.

Its beyond yummy!

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.
