Nutella is widely popular here in Australia, too. I love the stuff (straight from a spoon), but when my kids were little, I restricted their intake to occasional treats. I only ever serve it on toast or bread.

I recently tried the peanut version, and didn't like it at all.

Hot waffles with Nutella and whipped cream - heavenly!

Some rather oily and icky imitations (including one that swirls together fake nutella and banana creme) have been available here in Iceland for many years, but it was fairly recently that the real article became available. What a difference!

i love nutella, and i was very unhappy to discover that the stuff contains partially hydrogenated oils, otherwise known as trans-fats.

so good in crepes.

DH loves this too, in fact I don't know if he'd ever eaten a crepe any other way before I came on the scene

Ya know, I think this threads lasted nearly as long as the "World's Finest Pancake" thread did way back when. Nutella is great tasting stuff. That's for sure. And speaking of pancake toppings, Nutella would have to be a natural.

I wonder how it would be if it were used as an ingredient in a ganache, maybe served hot over butter-pecan ice cream. I'm gonna have to try that one of these days, if I can ever find some sugar-free butter-pecan ice cream that is.

It is sooooo good over top of ice cream! Scope the amount that you want out of the jar, and heat it for a few seconds in the nuker if you like, it's way easier to pour it over your ice cream this way. Or it is great in it for that matter! At a gelato bar in Dublin DH had "Nutella" flavoured ice cream, and says it is very popular in Italy

Yes I would love the recipe please.
Today in class mt children did a narrative story and I told them it could be about anything they liked as long as it contained the line " The Nutella jar was completely empty". The results were varied, interesting and sometimes hilarious. A lot involved my passion for Nutella on toast!!
