So maybe I'm at least HALF human? :pig:

LOL Michael!!! Nutella would be good as the center to a truffel!! My Italian friend said they grew up using that like we use peanut butter - but I would have to agree - don't use as much Nutella as you would peanut butter!

The kids in Germany, grew up with nutella like you have with peanut butter. :smile: It is a nut-nougat spread, made from hazelnuts and cocoa.

Some tips for using Nutella

- use it as a spread on bread or rolls

-for baking e.g. as filling for croissants, put in the dark
batter of a marble cake,...

- make desserts

Make crepes, top with 2 scoops vanilla ice cream,
melt Nutella and drizzle over the ice cream

Crepes with Banana and Nutella

Make a crepes, brush on nutella, put on a small banana, roll up and enjoy. That's my daughter's favorite :smile:

Sabayon Creme with Nutella

5 egg yolks
2 tbsp dry white wine
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp liquid honey

In another bowl combine the egg yolks and sugar, whisk until frothy and very light in color. Stiring constantly, by and by add the milk, wine and honey. Remove the bowl with nutella from the pot with hot water and and replace with the bowl of egg mixture. Constantly stir the egg mixture until it get's thickily. Remove from the heat. Still stiring add the hot melted nutella. Fill in a bowl and let cool, stiring once in a while. Serve with whipped cream and cookies

Well Michael, keep on enjoying the delight of Nutella, the more you eat it the more you will grow fond of it!! But be careful also, you could become TOO fond of this sinful stuff!!:lol:

Iris gave you guys some nice suggestions, in Italy, believe it or not there are also NUTELLA PIZZAS!! But don't worry with this pizza there are no tomatoes or cheeses, they just use the plain baked pizza dough with nothing on it, slice it sideways and make nutella sandwitch. Actually, the plain baked pizza dough is also popular, this is the original pizza bianca (white pizza) and they eat it simply with a drizzle of extra virgine olive oil, dash of rosemary and salt, or make a sandwich with something like nutella, among many other things...

I myself didn't encounter the immense pleasure of Nutella until I moved to Spain 13years ago with my ex husband in the Navy, but I was immediately hooked on it because I adore the hazelnut flavour!!:smile:
