What is it?

Available in many supermarkets, Nutella is a brand of creamy chocolate-hazelnut spread whose flavor is similar to that of gianduja, the hazelnut-flavored chocolate from the Piedmont region of Italy. Italian children enjoy Nutella spread on a slice of crusty bread. But it’s also great when you need a chocolate filling in a pinch.

Don’t have it?

You can substitute other brands of chocolate-hazelnut spread.
