Apparently students at Columbia University are just like the rest of us, at least to the extent that they can't resist stealing massive quantities of Nutella whenever they get the chance.

It seems the students have been taking off with as many as 100 pounds of the stuff every week from the school's dining hall. Some are filling cups with it. Others are straight up lifting jars of the stuff. But what are they doing with it once they get it back to their room?

Here are 11 brilliant and delicious things they should be doing with it. If you love Nutella (or, to put it another way, if you're human) we have good news -- we've included links to all the recipes. Just don't blame us when your fat pants get too tight.
