Has any one use it for filling? Or is it not firm enough.? Can it be used as is? Or dose anyone have any better ideas, (besides adding it to the buttercream) Thank you.

Yeah, tried it with a spoon going straight into my mouth.

Over the past few years I've bought Nutella with the intention of using it in a recipe. I'm ashamed to admit that I have no Nutella self-control. Yum!

I used nutella in cupcakes. I filled liners with vanilla batter, then swirled a tablespoon of nutella on the top before baking. Then frosted with a nutella buttercream. They turned out delicious! Not sure if this is what you were looking for...

I've used it for filling in cupcakes. It's really delicious...but it is gooey. If you were to use it on a cake, I'd make sure to have a pretty stiff dam around the edge to avoid it oozing out. Might also mix a little buttercream in it to stiffen it up a little.

Thanks, Carmijok, My daughter wants it for a cake, That I`m making for my granddaughters Birthday next month. And they love the stuff, I would`t be able to buy it till i need it cuz it would be gone. Do you think i`m better off warming up some fondant to use for a dam. If it`s that gooey?

Or you could make Nutella Ganache. I've seen a recipe with equal parts of heavy cream and nutella (1 cup). It looked a little runny, but you could try it that way and let it set up overnight. Then whip it like you would with regular choco ganache to make it fluffy. HTH! thumbs_up.gif

I've used it to fill cakes, and had no problem with oozing. A regular icing dam will work just fine. I, also, have trouble keeping it in the house and away from my big mouth!

I often use it as a filling for choc mudcake. As the cake is quite heavy/dense, I make a ganache dam, then I have no problem with oozing.

It is delicious! Everyone who tastes it, loves it!

So easy and simple! I just whip heavy whipping cream, (in a bowl that I had in the freezer) then refrigerate for about 15 minutes. Then just stir in the Nutella, (using my KA) until mixed and refrigerate until stiff, (about an hour or so)

I teach Wilton classes, I had a student use it once as a filling for her cake. The following week she said everyone at work loved it. I believe she put it on a chocolate cake and the frosting was the Wilton recipe for buttercream.

Karen421, Am I understanding you right, You`r wipping the heavy cream (cold) Till thick then stiring in the nutella, And just let it sit in the fridge? I read somewhere where they say, Heat heavy cream (3/4 cup) add to 1 jar 13oz of nutella then put in the fridge, Have you ever tried it that way?

I use it quiet often. Not straight though, unless it's a filling. However, I use it as a buttercream, with melted chocolate... heavenly! >.<

I haven't tried it warm. Yes - just take the entire (32 oz) Heavy whipping cream, cold and put it in a very cold bowl and whip it. After that sets up about 10 minutes, I add the entire jar of Nutella, stirring only until mixed. (don't mix it so much - or it could break down) Crazy easy!!!! You would be amazed what I have tried that way and how much people love mousses!!! icon_biggrin.gif
