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.

I could use this is just about anything… toast, cookies, brownies, bread? Oh the possibilties are endless.

Alison June 11, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Swirled into your breakfast oatmeal for a sweet twist!

Karen W. June 11, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Make chocolate pizza for dessert! Spread chocolate hazelnut spread on a pre-baked homemade or store bought crust that has been brushed with melted butter. Top with milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, and white chips (or any flavor combo.) and chopped hazelnuts. Then bake another minute just to soften chips. Slice and serve for Italian dessert nirvana!

Gwen June 11, 2012 at 7:28 pm

In thumbprint cookies

Janet June 11, 2012 at 7:37 pm

I’d use it instead of the chocolate bar in s’mores.

C L June 11, 2012 at 7:44 pm

I would make S’mores and dip them in warm milk that has a spoonful of hazelnut spread melted in it. MMmmmm! :)

Jacqui June 11, 2012 at 7:46 pm

I would make a dessert panini! Toasted bread, some hazlenut spread and strawberries all gooey together would be delicious :-)

Mellisa W June 11, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Hot, buttered, sourdough toast. Thanks!

Maria June 11, 2012 at 7:53 pm

I’ll make strawberry muffins and when filling the tins, put half the batter in, then a spoonful of the chocolate hazelnut spread then more batter then bake. Soooo good.

Allison W June 11, 2012 at 8:12 pm

I’d love that Jif on toast or on a spoon! I’m also thinking it would be delicious in oatmeal.

Alicia Keen June 11, 2012 at 8:13 pm

on toast or on a peanut butter sandwich

Kara June 11, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Peanut butter and chocolate spread swirl cookies! Or in a cheesecake. :)

Emily June 11, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Whoo! Great giveaway! I’ve been looking for the Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Nut Spread ever since you mentioned it a few weeks ago.

I love chocolate hazelnut spread swirled in brownies.

Nancy Wilcox June 11, 2012 at 8:35 pm

I love it on toast.

Valerie June 11, 2012 at 8:38 pm

If you’re pretending to be healthy, try it on apple slices. Or maybe a chocolate hazelnut spread and banana sandwich?

kayla June 11, 2012 at 8:53 pm

i’d love to try it in a “puppy chow” chex mix recipe!

KristinaYellow June 11, 2012 at 9:04 pm

I actually just love eating it smeared on a saltine…sometimes with some mini-marshmallows on top. Semi-portion controlled and oh so yummy

Mary June 11, 2012 at 9:14 pm

I’d enjoy it for lunch or a snack, spread on a firm multi-grain bread (I’m thinking one of the Pepperidge Farm or Arnold brand 9-Grain breads) with some thinly-sliced apple on top.

Tt June 11, 2012 at 9:29 pm

I would use to flavor milkshakes this summer!

Judy June 11, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Between sliced banana pieces, on a toothpick for snacks.

Therese B. June 11, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I would make a brownie with a cream~cheese with the hazelnut spread for an
in between layer. Then top it with fresh roasted hazelnuts.

Terri June 11, 2012 at 9:48 pm

You can use it as a dip for fruit.

Kathy C June 11, 2012 at 9:53 pm

Spread it on a graham cracker!! Nothing yummier as an evening snack! My entire family loves it!

Amy @ What Jew Wanna Eat June 11, 2012 at 10:22 pm

Fun giveaway! That cappuccino flavor sounds awesome. I would make some epic cookies with it!

Meg June 11, 2012 at 10:31 pm


Carole Resnick June 11, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Either flavor on apple (raw) slices.

Hannah June 11, 2012 at 10:48 pm

Spread on strawberries or bananas, or stirred into oatmeal. Amazing!

jenni June 11, 2012 at 10:58 pm

On banana bread….

Claire June 11, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Mmm, put it in oatmeal! That would be quite yummy. :-)

April June 11, 2012 at 11:45 pm

I would put it on Dave’s Killer Bread–toasted. It also is good in hot cocoa, melt a spoonful in the lhot milk.

asha June 11, 2012 at 11:57 pm

On a spoon is probably ideal, but since it is getting hot as all get out here, I would say combining an equal amount of spread and evaporated milk together, beating gently until incorporated, chill in the refrigerator overnight, then freeze in ice cream maker. Delicious ice cream (that, as an added perk, doesn’t get rock solid) with this stuff!

Meredith June 12, 2012 at 3:42 am

Sounds like the new JIF would be delicious on fruit.

Betsy June 12, 2012 at 6:12 am

I’d use it between cookies to make cookie sandwiches.

Francesca June 12, 2012 at 6:16 am

So, so many options! It’d be fan-tab-u-lous in oatmeal! It’d make a great cake/cupcake frosting flavor. Definitely on toast! A big spoonful certainly couldn’t hurt! :)

Rodzilla June 12, 2012 at 6:35 am

Chocolate Hazelnut paired with foie gras. I don’t think it could get much better.

karyna b June 12, 2012 at 6:37 am

on everything! my favorite by the spoonful

Carolyn June 12, 2012 at 6:38 am

stirred into my morning oatmeal!

cecily June 12, 2012 at 6:42 am

i’m hugely partial to hazelnut spread with marshmallows, toasted on a panini press.

om nom nom! :)

Claire June 12, 2012 at 6:51 am

I’d love to try this in a cheesecake!

Pat June 12, 2012 at 7:19 am

The mocha capuccino hazelnut sounds fabulous -and I would love to use it as a filling in a chocolate mocha cake or just spread it in a toasted slice of pound cake.

Amalia Andara June 12, 2012 at 7:30 am

Ohhh, i already have some recipes coming to my head, Chocolate hazelnut yummy!!!

Katie June 12, 2012 at 8:55 am

I would go nuts over this giveaway!! Peanut butter, hazelnut and coffee?! Yes please!

Ericnaz June 12, 2012 at 8:55 am

dip pretzels in it or spread it on fresh baked sugar cookies

petra June 12, 2012 at 9:14 am

My daughter likes the chocolate hazelnut on graham crackers. I like it on tea biscuits.

Nancy June 12, 2012 at 9:27 am

I would use this to make an icebox pie. This time of year in Texas, no-bake pies are the best!

justJENN June 12, 2012 at 11:07 am

OMG Mocha Cappuccino? Yum! I would make cookies for sure!

Anita June 12, 2012 at 11:10 am

Can’t wait to find this at my local Kroger.

My easy recipe: spread the Hazelnut spread between two Ritz-type crackers (or use the oval Townhouse-style crackers). Dip the cracker sandwiches in melted white chocolate confectionery coating and then set on waxed paper to harden. Enjoy!

If you want to get fancy, sprinkle some colored sugar or colorful sprinkles on the treats before the coating hardens.

So simple even small children can help.

crystal June 12, 2012 at 11:43 am

I would use it for a crepe filling and also sandwiched between graham crackers as a snack.

Pamela June 12, 2012 at 11:58 am

Mix with marshmallow creme for a sweet treat!

Stevie June 12, 2012 at 12:09 pm

I love them with crepes and whip cream
