Chocolate Hazelnut Frosting

"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 per...

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...

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!!

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 c...

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

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

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 heavenl...

t worked! It had a deeper flavor than just the can stuff, and surprisingly even after i added the powder sugar it wasn't too sweet.
