    This sounds sooo good but I can't make it. Not that I have any allergies or don't have the tools. I LOVE NUTELLA! I buy it for my son under the condition he hides it well in his room. If I make this, I'll eat it all. I HAVE NO CONTROL somedays. Maybe I'll use 10 chocolate chips and 10 almonds. - 2/7/11

    The almonds ground up fine, but not like butter. Added only half dark chocolate and then it had the buttery consistency. Spread on top of pumpkin muffins and I had a delightful treat - used a teaspoon on a mini muffin. MMMmmm Good. Made about 3/4 cup. - 2/20/11

    I made 4 jars of this last night! Two simple ingrediants, Nutella is made with moidfied palm oil that can spike bad cholesterol levels more than trans fats do. I am going to make more for Valentine gifts! Thanks for sharing - 2/11/11

    It was good. I had to add a little oil. But the amount of choc chips convinced me that it's way too close to candy. I am going back to peanut butter. Nutella (or this) could trigger a sugar binge. If you CAN handle it, try it -- it was good. - 2/7/11
