Make It

You CAN make this yourself without too much effort. Do a Google search for make nutella . The next step is to experiment with different nuts and oils to vary fat content.

I happen to be very fond of hazelnuts , but have had interesting results with walnuts and almonds.

Liqueurs and whiskeys add another flavor level. Play with spices, too.

That's what I was going to say! Rather inexpensive that way!

Dh is from Istanbul and like the rest of Europe (he's from the European side of Istanbul), he knows it from his childhood. It was his peanut butter.

Nutritionally, it's actually better than your run-of-the-mill Jif or Skippy. It's all natural and doesn't contain hydrogenated oil. We like it here, but we eat it sparingly, just as we do peanut butter. They both contain a lot of sugar.

It is AWESOME in crepes.

Yep, its comparable to peanut butter in all those nutritional aspects. I was vaguely referencing that chocolate is not very good for you but with the addition of the nut protein Nutella is better for you.

Frankly I don't care, I just love the stuff!

I tried making rice crispy treats with it once, but it was a failed experiment believe it or not. That does not mean I will not try again though.

I think this came up before, but I will post a way we like it again. We like to use crescent rolls rolled out and put nutella all over then roll up and bake. Sprinkle with a small amount of confectioner's sugar while still a bit warm.

1 jar = 2,000 calories.

You might as well just spread it directly onto your thighs.



John
The same could be said for many things mentioned here at DC! Who said anything about healthy?

I'm betting it's way healthier than a deep fried candy bar.
