I got an amazing job offer. I don't really want it. Is it wise to leverage it against my current employer?

A company in my current industry recruited me to join their executive team. They threw me an amazing offer (100% salary increase, lots of other stuff) and are very excited about me as a candidate. What they do as a company, however, is not quite as interesting as what I already do. Also, the business I'm currently in charge of and the people with whom I work are awesome. My current company is awesome. I want to stay put.
I've been given tons of new responsibilities over the past few years and have been promoted three times. Each promotion only came with modest raises... in short, I think I'm under paid. I have an excellent track record and am a key decision maker for my current company.
It's time to talk to my boss... is this as simple as letting her know what I've been offered and wait to see how she reacts?
