Been eating it since I was a baby.

We're Italian and my grandmother always had it in her house. Everyone's Italian grandma in the area always did for whatever reason. She used to put it on a sandwich.

Something scandalous I will do now on the rare occasion we have it around is dip pretzels and stuff in it. It's sooooooooo good. We barely keep it around though because it's so fattening.

And if even one time, ya gotta try a Nutella and fluff sandwich!! Or even more fatty and good Nutella, fluff, PB!!

I had never heard of Nutella until I read about it here on CD. Last month, I purchased my first jar from Super WM. Since then, we've had it plain of course, with apple, and my favorite so far was served on warm cinnamon raisin bread. OK, now I'm headed to the pantry again.

I made crepes for brunch on Sunday, and used Nutella and raspberries for the filling, with a drizzle of creme anglais, and a dusting of powdered sugar, OMG, it was fabulous!

How about Nutella Soup?

I found a recipe for Chocolate & Hazelnut Soup in an old cookbook I was browsing though....soooo decadent.

1 and 1/4 pints milk
9fl oz cream
1il 2oz dark chocolate
2oz superfine sugar
1 tbsp water
8 egg yolks
7 fl oz whipping cream

6 tbs skinned hazelnuts - toasted and chopped
finely grated rind of 1 orange
6tsp Grand Marnier (orange liquer) or Frangelico (Hazelnut liqueur)
ice cream - of your choice!

Heat milk and cream to near boil, add chopped chocolate and stir til melted into a chocolate cream.
Boil water and sugar together for 1 minute to make a syrup
Whisk egg yolks, then add sugar syrup gradually, keep whisking until doubled in volume.
Fold in whipped cream.
Fold in chocolate cream and mix until all combined..

Pour into pretty bowls, and sprinkle with hazelnuts, orange zest and drizzle over the Grand Marnier. Serve with a scoop of ice cream.

WOW! The addition of Grand Marnier is killer! I wonder why the recipe doesn't call for serving with large STRAW!!
