For anyone interested, in looking for recipes that use Nutella I found out that Feb 5th is NUTELLA DAY.
 I thought I would pass on the Nutella Day info.  That way for everyone that has never tried Nutella you can make a point of trying it on Feb. 5th.
For the fans of Nutella I think the day calls for making something special.
How about posting some Nutella recipes.

Hi Nikki ~  Isn't it funny that I STILL haven't opened my jar of Nutella - lol - 
I think it's time for me to check the expiration date.

Nancy, I posted this just so you would try the Nutella that is in the cabinet.  Take a slice of the coconut bread and toast it.  Slather it with some of the Nutella and let me know how you like it. The Nutella has to go on as soon as you take the toast from the toaster so it will warm up the Nutella and make it all "melty" and gooey to eat.

Cheryl and Mary, Nutella is a Hazelnut and chocolate blend.   Sort of like a chocolate flavored peanut butter just made with hazelnuts.   Very good on toast but I also like it on toasted pound cake.  It can be used in brownies, just swirl some into the batter before baking.  I also will "zap" some in the microwave and pour it over ice cream.  Heated up it does become more liquid so it makes a great fast "fondue" for cake, fruit, marshmallows, pretzels. 
Also very good just dipping a finger, or in polite company a spoon into the jar.

I will look for some great recipes and post them.

My family found Nutella while we were on a trip through Italy and the childen absolutely feel in love with it. They took it from the breakfast table so that they would have enough for the rest of the day-on any food that they could find. When we returned to the U.S.,Nutella was quite a challenge to find-after numerous trips to different stores ,we finally found it and now I keep it in stock just in case they come to visit. Oh,what memories!!

Ok, I found a couple of recipes that I think are worthy of sharing.
Think the first one I will make later this week, have some shopping to do first.
Nutella Butterscotch Bars
1 Sheet of puff pastry
1 Cup butterscotch chips
1 Cup Nutella
2 large eggs
1/4 Cup flour
1 Cup mini chocolate chips

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Using a rolling pin on a floured surface, roll the puff pastry to 1/8 inch thickness.  Dock the dough several times with a fork, covering the surface of the pastry.  Place the dough on a foil lined, or parchment paper lined cookie sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.  Bake for 10 minutes, until golden brown in color.  Set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, stir together butterscotch chips, Nutella, eggs, flour and mini chips.  Spread the mixture onto the puff pastry, leaving a 1 inch boarder.  Turn the oven down to 350* degrees F. and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes.  When the bars are done, the top will be cracked slightly and the center will have a creamy texture.  Allow the bars to cool completely and cut with a pizza wheel or sharp knife.  Makes 24.

Recipe number 2

Nutella Bundt Cake
1 Cup Nutella
4 large eggs, divided
1 box (18.25 ounce) yellow cake mix. 
side note when I make this I will use a chocolate cake mix!
1/2 Cup buttermilk
1 Cup confectioners sugar
2 Tb Frangelico or hazelnut syrup
Heat oven to 350 degrees Lightly grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan
In a small bowl whisk together 2/3 Cup Nutella and 1 egg.  Blend until completely smooth and set aside.  In a large bowl, using electric mixer on low speed, stir together cake mix, remaining 3 eggs, buttermilk and the remaining 1/3 cup Nutella until moistened.  Scrape down sides and beaters and increase speed to medium, beat another 2 minutes.
Remove 1 cup of the batter and mix with the reserved Nutella -egg mixture.  Pour leftover batter evenly into prepared pan.  spoon reserved Nutella batter over it and using a knife gently swirl batters to create a marble pattern.  Smooth top of cake and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.  Moist crumbs should stick to toothpick when inserted into cake
Allow cake to cool 15 minutes in pan.  Carefully invert onto cooling rack and remove pan.  While cake continues to cool make glaze with confectioner's sugar and Frangelico, stir until smooth.  Drizzle over cake.

This should be a good start for Nutella recipes.

I get my hazelnut syrup at Starbucks.  As far as Frangelico here is the lesson...

Frangelico is a brand of noisette, or hazelnut and herb-flavored liqueur (coloured with caramel coloring) which is produced in Canale, Italy. It is 24% alcohol by volume, 48 proof. It was released in the 1980s, gaining attention largely because of its unusual packaging: its bottle was designed to look like a friar, complete with a knotted white cord around the waist. It is most commonly sold in two sizes: 750ml and 375ml

Frangelico can be used to make many different cocktails, such as the Hazelnut Martini, the Frangelico Colada, and Frangelico and Cranberry Juice. It can also be combined with vodka to make the Chocolate Cake shot. For a quick and easy drink, it can be served on ice, with soda water, or with coffee.

The origins of Frangelico date back more than 300 years to the existence of early Christian monks living in the hills of Northern Italy. According to Barbero, the manufacturer in Italy, the name of the liqueur is based on a legend of a hermit named Fra Angelico who "created unique recipes for liqueurs." However, the bottle itself most closely resembles the habit of a Franciscan friar, while the liqueur's likely namesake, the famous painter Fra Angelico (d.1455), was a Dominican, whose robe would have been white and without the cincture.

Frangelico is made in a similar manner to some other nut liqueurs: nuts are crumbled up and combined with cocoa, vanilla berries, and other natural flavors, and then left to soak in the base spirit. After the spirit has absorbed the flavor of the ingredients, the liqueur is filtered, sweetened, and bottled

I think you can find that in the coffee aisle where the flavored coffees and cappuccinos are. I believe it is used to flavor coffee, milksakes, etc. There are other flavored syrups, too.

Elsa, WOW! Talk about a fountain of information.
All I was going to say is since the Frangelico or hazelnut syrup is for the glaze it could probably be omitted and use almost any other flavored liquid for the glaze.  That said I would be careful that it does not overpower the flavor of the cake. If you are "friendly with your local coffee shop ask if you could have a few tablespoons of the syrup.

Here's a quick desert using nutella:  Heat a crepe (or think tortilla, if you don't have any) slather nutella, put sliced banana on top.  Roll and eat.  If you like put whipped cream or cool whip inside or on top (or both.)

One of my sons made a delicious nutella brownie for Christmas.  He wasn't sure how they would turn out or taste, since he'd never heard of it before.  Once he and his daughter tasted the brownie, they went to the store and bought another jar to use on toast in the mornings.

The Nutella Butterscotch Bars sound absolutely delicious.  And it just so happens I have both Nutella and butterscotch chips on hand and ready to use; however, my baking will be temporarily postponed until I can get to the store to purchase some puff pastry.  I usually have some in the freezer, but used it over the holidays. 

Nutella is just way TOOOOOO good.  I enjoy it on toast, crackers, with peanut butter and jam for a sandwich, on grilled sourdough bread, OR simply "as is" right from the jar!!!

I don't believe I have ever had coconut bread.  Is that a homemade bread or is it available in stores?  It does sound like it would be very tasty paired with Nutella.

Yummy, my favorite snack! LOL  I usually don't have enough of it left to make any of the recipes, will have to stock up again.  Spread some on rice cakes for a quick snack topped with some dried fruit or straight out of the jar for a quick pick-me-up lol.

Thanks to all for the recipes and ideas.
