This week we’re excited to introduce Kraft’s new Crunchy Hazelnut Spread. This new spread is delicious spread over your toast or in a sandwich.
What other uses are there? Why not try these 4 easy ideas:
- Hazelnut Popcorn
This topping is a great way to make popcorn a little more fun…. In a saucepan, boil ½ a cup of sugar and ½ cup of honey. Add ½ a cup of hazelnut spread with a teaspoon of salt. Stir until smooth and pour over popcorn. Spread coated popcorn on baking paper to ensure it doesn’t stick together.
Add a tablespoon of hazelnut spread to your morning smoothie to add a tasty kick to your day.
For a tasty treat, try spreading some of your hazelnut spread over fruit. Apples, pears and bananas will work great!
Recreate your traditional s’more by replacing chocolate with hazelnut spread – yum!
Also new to the range are Almond, Cashew and Hazelnut Smooth – look out for them in store!

Finding new and interesting ways to make fruit fun for kids can be a challenge. So with this in mind, we asked Sonia from Life, Love & Hiccups to share some simple ideas (ones you would actually have time to make). Here are 6 of top suggestions:
- Watermelon Hearts
Why not share some melon love! Use a love heart cookie cutter to cut the shape of a heart in a watermelon and fill with another heart shape of rock melon or honey dew.
- Apple Cups
For an afternoon snack, cut an apple in half, scoop out the core and centre with a melon scoop and fill with chopped fruit and yoghurt.
- Pineapple Faces
Cut a pineapple ring, add a melon ball nose and blueberries for eyes. Freeze for an hour and you have a delicious twist on an icy pole!
- Fruit Skewers
Melon shapes, strawberries and grapes on paddle pop sticks – deliciously simple.
- Berry Islands
Thread slices of banana and strawberry onto a skewer and surround with grapes and blueberries.
- Fruit Cones
If apple cups seem like too much work, fill flat bottom ice cream cones with fruit salad and a drizzle of yoghurt.

Not a salad fan? Here are 8 salads to tempt those who tell us they don’t like salad…
- Moroccan Lamb Salad
It’s hard to go past lamb, but covered in mouth-watering Moroccan flavours and with a zesty chickpea & lentil salad, even the biggest salad critics will fine this hard to resist. View recipe.
- Grilled Basil Chicken Salad
Fresh and light, the secret to this salad is fresh basil, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. View recipe.
- Portuguese Chicken Salad
If summer was a salad it would be this – Portuguese chicken, peaches, feta and tomatoes. View recipe.
- Spicy Beef Salad
Turn up the heat with this spicy and fragrant beef noodle salad with sweet chilli sauce. With the consistency of a stir-fry, this is a salad in disguise! View recipe.
- Zucchini & Pesto Salad

- Vietnamese Chicken Salad
Chicken salad too boring? Take it up a notch with delicious Vietnamese flavours, crunchy Asian veg and peanuts. View recipe.
- Quinoa Salad
Combine two flavour trends with Dukkah-roasted veg & quinoa. The key to this salad though is the garlic & Greek yoghurt dressing, it works perfectly all year round. View recipe.
- Potato Salad
Who doesn’t love a potato salad? Everyone has their own way of doing it, but our favourite combination is bacon, cornichons, capers and parsley – yum! View recipe.

Chicken is a staple ingredient in most Australian households, but it’s easy to get stuck in a chicken rut. Here are 4 simple twists on traditional chicken favourites to keep it a flavour boost:
- Chicken Chimichangas
Rather than chicken burritos, try chicken & cheese chimichangas using hot roast chicken from the deli. View recipe.
- Chicken & Raspberry
Rather than the usual warm chicken salad, try poached chicken with raspberry vinaigrette – full of colour & summer flavour. View recipe.
- Chicken & Pear
Rather than serving chicken breast with 3 veg, try Prosciutto-wrapped chicken with honey-roasted pears. View recipe.
- Chicken & Mango Chilli
Rather than grilled chicken with potato salad, try serving with a mango chilli salsa, lime & mint. View recipe.
Look out for our RSPCA Approved chicken in store or online at shop.coles.com.au. If you try one of these recipes, we’d love to see the finished result – tag us on Facebook or Instagram using #Coles.
