Has anyone ever used Nutella as a filling before? Maybe paired with a chocolate fudge cake? You could even add some hazelnuts for crunch. I think I will have to try this and report back.

I have used this, but Nutella is very thick and had a tendency to pull at the crumb of the cake.

I have also beaten it into chocolate SMBC, which gave it great flavor. This is the version I now use.

What if you took the whole jar and melted it a bit in the microwave. Made a dam with BC, of whatever flavor, and then poured it in. Smooth, let it set up for a bit before you put the second layer on?

Do you think that would work?

I've whipped it until fluffy before and it worked fine. It does taste awesome mixed with BC though.

It is really way too sweet for my taste.

I love Nutella straight out of the jar! My favorite way to use it in cake is to fill chocolate fudge cupcakes with it and ice them with chocolate icing. One of my son's friends loves these so much I try to have them on hand when he comes over so he can take some home with him.

i am glad that someone posted this thread. i too was wondering if i could use the Nutella as a filling secured by a buttercream dam.

i may have to experiment with the hazelnuts though...i haven't figured out if to use them in the buttercream or folded into the chocolate cake batter

I have used it before with dark chocolate ganache. I put it in the micrwave for about 30 seconds...just enough to get it spreadable nothing more. Then I mixed the entire tub with about a cup and a half of ganache and put in the refrigerator for about two or three hours to thicken a little. then just spread it on the top of cake like it was a normal pudding or BC filling. It was awesome! I did this with a Double Chocolate Fudge Cake.

I've used it to fill cupcakes before. Stuck it in the piping gun with the bismark tip and began "shooting" cupcakes. The whole class I made them for wanted seconds and the moms wanted to know what bakery they were from.

Where do you find Nutella? Does WM carry it and if so, what aisle. I've wanted to try it.

Yes Walmart has it right next to the peanut butters.

Check out the peanut butter section. It's a nut spread. I usually find it somewhere around the top shelf.

is it about the same consistancy as peanut butter? can it be used in recipes interchangeably?

It is much thinner than peanut butter. It's consistency is between chocolate syrup and peanut butter. There are recipes on their website for cookies made with it that are scrumptious. But my kids favorite thing to do with it is to spread it on crusty french bread or between two graham crackers for dessert.

My favorite thing to do with it is eat it with a spoon right out of the jar! I've done the nutella w/ whipping cream and it is fabulous!!!!

I am making hazelnut crunch cupcakes next weekend as part of my cupcake order. I am going to mix it with double chocolate BC instead of the melted chocolate. Its going on a swirl on the chocolate cupcake, then I am sprinkling chopped hazelnuts on top. I will let you know how they turn out.
