Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spread Giveaway

by on June 11, 2012 · 269 comments

Update:  Giveaway over!  Thanks to all who shared tips, and good luck on the next one.

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread at the grocery store. Bought it, tried it, liked it! And then last week something really nice happened. Jif contacted me (not the peanut butter itself, but rather a human representative) and asked if I’d like to host a giveaway featuring their product. Well, heck yes!

Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Flavored Spread

Now I’m supposed to share some tips on how to use it, but I’ve already posted two recipes and feel that’s enough for now. How about if you post tips? In the comment section, share one tip on how to use Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. This Friday I will randomly choose one commenter who will receive a Jif Tasting Kit which includes the following:

• Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread
• Jif Mocha Cappuccino Flavored Hazelnut Spread (I didn’t know about this one!)
• Homemade Marshmallows (Not sure whose house they’re going to make them in, but wow.)
• Graham Crackers (for S’mores)
• Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix (Yum)
• Folgers Black Silk Coffee (Tried this at Smucker’s. People who love smooth, milder coffee went nuts over this)
• Silver Spoon (?)
• Recipes and Tips (of course!)
• $50 AMEX Gift Card (Woo Hoo!

The value of this tasting kit is $100 and in full disclosure, I also received one.

Pit it on waffles or pancakes!

mark s. June 11, 2012 at 1:18 pm

i would put the chocolate spread on my banana split as a topping

Jessica June 11, 2012 at 1:27 pm

After eating a spoonful straight out of the jar, I would like to try using it in place of peanut butter in a peanut butter brownie recipe. Mmmm!

Gina P. June 11, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Smother it on animal crackers…such a tasty and addicting snack :)

Rebecca June 11, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Spread it on Chocolate Graham crackers and top with peanut butter chips!

Joyce Mitchell June 11, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Spread it between some Nilla wafer cookies. Thanks for the chance to win.

Shannon June 11, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Eat it with a spoon :)

Beth L June 11, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I warm it slightly and drizzle it over ice cream.

Megan H June 11, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I would have to hide in the pantry with a spoon so I wouldn’t have to share with my kids! Otherwise I’d eat it on toast with bananas. :)

Jane June 11, 2012 at 2:13 pm

My husband is Italian…they have the hazelnut chocolate spread there. He scoops a tbs. full of the spread and mix it with his morning coffee.

eva June 11, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I think these would be awesome in a stuffed cookie. I made a homemade version of the Pillsbury prize winning PB stuffed cookie a few years ago. Jif hazelnut or mocha would be yummy!!/photo.php?fbid=52131780433&set=a.5879410433.24193.838610433&type=3&theater

Denise B June 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm

spread it on toast pr crackers

jennifer t June 11, 2012 at 2:54 pm

I adore it simple and on toast! Sometimes I live on the edge and add a little honey drizzle to the top. I also love it on my pancakes and waffles!

Gianna June 11, 2012 at 2:56 pm

In the middle of a layer cake :)

Cori June 11, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Chocolate brownies with Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spread frosting!

RMJ June 11, 2012 at 3:05 pm

spread it on some good crusty bread for breakfast….and lunch…and dinner.

Erika June 11, 2012 at 3:05 pm

I keep picking up both of these jars in the store, debating a purchase or not. My favorite use for Nutella is smeared thickly on whole wheat toast for breakfast. We love JIF peanut butter here, so the hazelnut spread is very, very tempting.

Vera June 11, 2012 at 3:13 pm

my kids like it on waffles or pancakes. :)

Hannah at FleurDeLicious June 11, 2012 at 3:16 pm

I would make some shortbread sandwich cookies with the mocha cappuccino spread! And the hazelnut one would be eaten by the spoonful before I could make anything with it :)

Rebecca June 11, 2012 at 3:16 pm

It’s good in yogurt banana smoothies, in place of my usual peanut butter and any sweetener. Also good all by itself with a spoon…

Darcy Panak June 11, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I would to eat it on ice cram with some banana slices ! Yummy!

Emily June 11, 2012 at 3:21 pm

I haven’t tried it so I would have to steal the tips above and eat it on toast or off the spoon.

Kathy June 11, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Spread on graham crackers and eat plain or make s’mores, or using as topping for plain cookies or bars.

Rick Sires June 11, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I think a spoon and a comfy chair are all I need . . .

Puppydogs June 11, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Oh top a warm brownie and vanilla sundae with it :)

Cookies4kids June 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I stir a spoonful into my mediocre hot chocolate to make it a decadent treat!!! I could add the marshmallows also if I should win. Thanks so much.

Louise June 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I haven’t tried the Jif spread yet, but I put the competition on Wasa and eat it for breakfast.

Julie @ Sugarfoot Eats June 11, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Spread on top of a warm brownie for something extra special.

claire S June 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Mix in a dash of cinnamon and spread on graham crackers. A delicious and not-too decadent treat.

Sue June 11, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I think it would go great in crepes with some cut-up banana

Amy L June 11, 2012 at 4:44 pm

I think I’d eat it off a spoon. : )
I would like to try it as a filling for french macarons. I’ve baked them once, and have been wanting to try again. I also make a very simple peanut-butter, milk, honey, and banana smoothie, and I bet this spread would be yummy in that too. Here’s the recipe:
They use soy milk, but regular milk works fine. It’s a great breakfast on the go.

Kyla June 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm

I would mix it with the cream cheese when making cream cheese brownies.

JennieM June 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm

I would make my Grandma’s Jif Peanut Butter Frosting with the Chocolate flavored Hazelnut spread and put in on a white cake.

Debby June 11, 2012 at 4:54 pm

On warm toast with my morning coffee!

robyn June 11, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Spread it on crepes (or at our house, Polish pancakes) and top with sliced bananas and whipped cream. Delightful!

CHERYL June 11, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Spread it on warm crescent rolls and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

TxPepper June 11, 2012 at 5:08 pm

It if weren’t so hot, I would probably bake and make a stuffed cookie or a layer bar of some sort. But since it is hot, just a spoon straight into the jar. :-)

~ Maybe that is what what the giveaway silver spoon is for….plain and unadorned! Yummm

Jen June 11, 2012 at 5:10 pm

I hate to be boring, but I think I would love this just spread on a nice, toasty, crunchy bagel. I love when nut butters get all melty & delicious!

Jenny June 11, 2012 at 5:15 pm

One silly way I’d love to use it straight up with a spoonful of peanut butter and sprinkles with some Cap’n Crunch cereal!

Martha in KS June 11, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Picture this – graham cracker – chocolate hazelnut spread – marshmallow creme – another graham cracker. GET IN MY BELLY!

What does it mean “chocolate flavored”?

Dee June 11, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I would put it on a waffle with a sliced banana on top.

Beverly Jones June 11, 2012 at 5:31 pm

I would love to use this to make some Easy Chocolate Hazelnut Tarts with a baked short crust containng ground hazelnuts, cooled, then filled with the Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and garnished with a whole hazelnut.
I looked evrywhere for this spread since reading some delicious recipes using it, but I can’t find it anywhere!
Thank you

Donna June 11, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I’m pretty sure all I would need is a spoon.

Amelia Tucker June 11, 2012 at 5:41 pm

For a healthier-ish snack, I like to spread a layer of it onto a plain ricecake, and maye top with a few fresh raspberries. Mmmm….

Sagi June 11, 2012 at 5:58 pm

one box of jif hazelnut spread poured into a bowl with 1 pack of heavy cream – microwave for 30 seconds and stir.
mix in a box of crumbed graham crackers, and you have the best and fastest no-bake cookie dough ever.

Jillian June 11, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Yes please, yes please, yes please!! I would smother it all over warm toast because melty goodness is perfection on a plate!

Beth June 11, 2012 at 6:12 pm

On toast!

Ela June 11, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Use it to fill thumbprint, spritz or sandwich cookies. Also as a filling for cupcakes.

sharona June 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm

looks like it would be yummy spread on sugar cookie dough and rolled up and sliced for pinwheel cookies

Sugarbetty June 11, 2012 at 6:35 pm

I think I would use it in a homemade ice cream. Maybe as a swirl in vanilla or make a chocolate hazelnut ice cream. Yum.
