I came up with this trying to dress-up canned frosting for chocolate chip cookie sandwiches and was very pleased with the results. There aren't nearly enough recipes that use chocolate hazelnut spread! It's great for frosting cookies or brownies, or frosting and filling cakes. No one will ever guess this started in a can.

Excellent frosting. I don't like store bought frostings but I thought I'd give this a try because of the nutella. I used sugar-free nutella because it's what I had on hand and it came out perfectly delicious. I imagine it would be so much better but sweeter with the regular nutella. I made a 2 layer cake and topped my cake with a cherry and some crushed hazelnuts. There was plenty of frosting for a nice thick layer. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was really yummy. The only change that I would make is to add at least 2-3 tablespoons of milk because the consistency is really thick and slowed my beaters down! The milk smooths it out and makes for a creamy delicious frosting. Read More

I'm not a big frosting fan but the added nutella decreased the richness. The combination of this with the cookies was a bit hit in our household. Would not change a thing!! Read More

What a great idea to make regular chocolate frosting taste like it came right out of a bakery. I love chocolate frosting but I don't want to take the time to make it from scratch and canned chocolate frosting just isn't good. Thanks for the idea! By the way don't add any water. I added just a tiny bit thinking it would make it more spreadable. It did but it was a little gooey. Don't change a thing in the recipe. Read More

This was super easy n quick to make. My electric mixer is on stereroids so I opted to just blend/mix with a rubber spatula and it worked fine. Turned my plain lil yellow cupcakes into a heavenly lil treat. My hubby says they are a "WIN". Thanks for sharing. Read More

Frosting was much too stiff and did not whip up well until I added some softened butter. Then it was great! Read More

Very easy and delicious. I agree with the other reviewers this frosting is pretty thick. I added about 1 1/2 tablespoon of milk. Read More
