Nutella, the hazelnut spread that is a pantry must!

Recently we were lucky to have Nutella party sponsored by Mommy Parties. Not that I ever need an excuse to share some great products with my friends but this party made me so excited.

What is Nutella? Nutella is a hazelnut spread. It is a combination of the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa.Nutella has no artificial colors or preservatives.

My family loves Nutella from waffles to cookies Nutella tastes so yummy. We always have a container of Nutella in the pantry.  If I let them, my kids would eat Nutella on waffles every morning. Personally, a little Nutella on a tortilla, wrapped up, has been my little treat after dinner.

When I was planning the party, my friends were split on those who absolutely love Nutella to those who knew nothing of Nutella.

So, to show Nutella's many uses, I asked everyone to some ideas how to use Nutella I asked my friends to contribute a favorite recipe. My friends really came through with some great ones.

Here are some examples.

Chocolate Kisses

  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

  • 1 nine oz package of Hershey kisses
  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Combine flour, baking soda salt 
  • In another bowl, place Nutella butter and both white andbrown sugar.  Cream w mixer about 3 minutes
  • Add egg and vanilla and blend until incorporated. Stir in dry ingredients.

Nutella triangles

In addition to these fun recipes, there are Weight Watcher recipes, Paula Dean recipes and many, many more. Actually, Nutella tastes great just straight from the jar. Just make sure that you have a good knife to get out all the goodness that can get stuck in the jar.

So next time that you are at the store, pick up a jar of Nutella. It just might become your pantry staple.
