Nutella!

SpiralliSpiralli Posts: 3,654Registered Users Curl Dabbler
On a whim, I picked up our first jar ever of this Nutella stuff that I'd been reading about. Wow! I should not have done that. :tongue5: I am probably one of the last people to try this, but I like it! I was surprised that it's approx. the consistency of thin creamy peanut butter. And also surprised by how chocolate-y it tastes. I was expecting more of the nut flavor to come through. DS and DH have not tried it yet, but it may be a new hit at my house. Looks to have as much fat in it as regular p.b. so definitely not a diet or "health" food, IMO.

    You poor thing! :angry7: ;)

    I have such fond childhood memories of Nutella on toast for breakfast on special occasions!

    Love it. Smooth, creamy, chocolaty. I eat it right out of the jar when I need a chocolate fix.

    I can't keep it around. I eat it with a spoon, and failing clean cutlery, with my fingers.

    It's a sickness.

    I read this thread when I was snowed in yesterday and wanting to bake--so I came up with a peanut butter and nutella cookie recipe! They were actually pretty good, just might have to tweak the amount of nutella a little bit (needs a touch more I think)

    Before or after you tweak it, if you wouldnt' mind posting it, I would love to give it a try. :)

    Sure!! Let's see, here's what I came up with:
    2 cups peanut butter (I used smooth, but I think chunky would work if you like that)
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 to 2 tsp. of vanilla, depending on your personal taste
    *originally, I put in 2 tablespoons of Nutella, but I think 3 or maybe even 4 would work*
    -preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients with mixer--it will look a little "grainy" if that makes sense. I just used a teaspoon and scooped spoonfuls out and then made balls with my hands and placed them on a non-stick cookie sheet (I lined it with that quick release foil). Then I used a fork dipped in water & then sugar and pressed down on the balls. They don't spread. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on your oven *because of the color of the nutella, it can be kind of hard to tell when the cookies are done--it took some peeking at the bottoms to be sure!* Depending on the size of the cookies you make, this can make about 3-4 dozen cookies (I think I got 4 dozen out of this batch).
    These make really rich cookies that are great with coffee or milk...we were all trying them out this morning at work, and so far people like them! I just took a couple of pb cookies recipes and "mashed" them up. I hope you give them a try and like them :hello2:

    I too just recently tried Nutella for the first time.

    I expected it to be super chocolately so the idea of it on toast or whatever seemed unappealing to me.

    I have it in crepes with sliced banana. It's AMAZING that way!!

    Mmm, totally my favorite kind of crepes. I'm a bit more of a fan of yogurt than most people, but if the idea doesn't scare you, I like nutella/banana/plain yogurt crepes even better. Soooo good. Don't expect to be any shade of clean after eating one, though. :D

    160g flour
    2 eggs
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    2 tablespoons oil

    1/3 litre milk
    Mix dry ingredients, add oil and eggs, then milk a little at a time (so as to not get clumps).
    Allow to rest for 15 minutes to an hour or two. (if you do more than 15 minutes, it's probably best to stick it in the fridge for that part).

    Heat the thinnest pan you can on a stove, to... I dunno, I think I do medium heat, oil or butter the pan, and ladle in some dough, then swirl the pan around so it covers the bottom. Your first crepe will always be a little messed up, so don't despair. Lift up the edges of the crepe, when it starts looking golden with somewhat brown circles, flip it (either with a spatula or by swinging the pan... leave the pan swinging to the experienced crepe makers :P). This is when you want to add garnish if you're making a melted cheese crepe or any other "hot" crepe. Once the bottom is looking golden too (or your cheese is melted ;)), it's done!

    There, straight from my french childhood ;) Sorry about the metric measurements, but come on, google will translate for you into cups and such. Crepes are really, really not hard to make.

    I never seem to have the time to make crepes, so I fake it with a dutch baby. it's super easy and it's cool to watch it cook. It works best in a cast iron skillet but I think any oven-safe skillet with high sides would do.

    preheat oven to 425

    1/2 cup milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup flour
    2 eggs room temp

    mix well so there are no lumps.

    then melt 4tbs of butter in the pan. swirl the melted butter so that it coats the sides and the bottom. Dump in the batter and let it cook for no more than a minute.

    stick it in the oven and watch it pouf up. Maybe 15 min or so.

    It deflates quickly but it's still yummy.

    I also like to put nutella in my fondue pot and get frozen cream puffs for dipping.

    Nutella and I have had a love affair since I was pregnant with DS.

    Nutella on a spoon, does it get any better?

    I grew up on this stuff in New York...Nutella on everything!! But my friend makes the best Nutella and PB sandwiches, I swear--even though it's just on wonder bread I think she puts a magic ingredient in them so I always ask her to make one for me and bring it in to work :D

    Oh, Nutella :love5:

    I saw an 11-pound jar of Nutella last time I was in NYC. I wanted to stick my whole face in it.
  • crazywavescrazywaves Posts: 582Registered Users
    A simple desert is grilled pineapple with nutella drizzled over it. Actually any grilled fruit is better with nutella.

    Toast or grilled bread with nutella and bananas or strawberries or both.

    Quickie smores graham crackers with nutella and marshmellow fluff.

    That almost sounds like a better version of a smores, but I do need my actual marshmellow :). Never got into the fluff.

    nutella + hot oatmeal

    One of my favorite desserts for guests is a box of the Costco cream puffs and nutella melted in my fondue pot. Just give each guest a skewer and they can dunk the cold creampuff in the hot nutella. It's awesome!

    I love Nutella on plain old unsalted crackers. (I can make a rather embarrassing mess on my desk at work!)

    I did see a special chocolate episode on the Food Network yesterday where Giada Di Laurentiis made Nutella Ravioli!

    I've got to try this recipe! /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.foodnetwork.com%2Frecipes%2Fgiada-de-laurentiis%2Fchocolate-hazelnut-ravioli-recipe2%2Findex.html" class="Popup :tongue1:

    I was in the Piedmont region of Italy a few years ago where Nutella was created. They use it in coffee! You gotta love the Italians!!!!

    Use the back of a spoon and smear about 1 teaspoon of Nutella inside a coffee cup then fill it up with coffee. I like cream/sugar in my coffee, so I mix it up before I pour it into the cup so I don't disturb the sweet, heavenly spread of Nutella! You kinda have to eat this with a spoon - yummy!!!
