The chocolate hazelnut spread Nutella has been a popular spread for toast, waffles, pancakes, crepes, crumpets and drizzled over porridge and yoghurt. The gorgeous spread of Nutella over toast or pancakes makes us feel like breakfast time is dessert time, and we’re all for it.
But Nutella isn’t simply limited to being your spread over toast, it can be a wonderful hero ingredient for a variety of different desserts. And we have eight mouth-watering recipes you’ll definitely want to make if you’re a huge Nutella fan like us.
1. Nutella Cookies
Of course, you can spread Nutella over your cookies, but why not bake the chocolate spread straight into them? These Nutella cookies from Bigger Bolder Baking are so gooey and delicious, and the best part? They only require three ingredients! With no effort and a beautifully crumby exterior to munch on as you devour these rich cookies, you’ll be salivating as you eat them!
2. Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
If you want your Nutella to stay intact within its glorified rich and creamy chocolatey texture, then these Nutella stuffed chocolate chip cookie bars from Sweetest Menu are for you. They are heavenly, have a divine texture, and Nutella oozes so beautifully out of them! Just like chocolate chip cookie bars but with Nutella dripping right out of them.
3. Nutella Stuffed Mini Pancakes
Okay, we’ve already raved about how great Nutella is when it’s spread over pancakes and crepes. But have you ever thought about stuffing your pancaked with this rich chocolate spread? Well, Tastemade has with this gorgeous Nutella stuffed mini pancakes recipe.
Taking after the dutch pancake style that simply melts in your mouth, these mini pancakes are just like little Nutella bombs.
4. No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake
Many people don’t realise this, but the maker of Nutella is, in fact, the same maker of the equally popular hazelnut chocolate pieces Ferrero Rocher. This easy no-bake Nutella cheesecake recipe from Yummiest Food glorifies both our favourite choc hazelnut spread and Ferrero Rocher together to make a decadent and rich dessert.
5. Nutella Mug Cake
Somewhere between a warm brownie and slice of gooey chocolate cake, this Nutella mug cake from Just So Tasty is the perfect winter warmer. Made in the microwave in under five minutes, this Nutella mug cake is easy to make, extra fudgy, gooey and is absolutely heavenly when topped up with a scoop of your favourite vanilla ice cream.
6. Nutella Tart
Something about the idea of a rich, biscuity, crumbly tart screams a warm Sunday afternoon having lunch with the family. This Nutella tart from Sally’s Baking is the perfect dessert to serve for your Sunday family lunch or for one of your baking days. This tart is traced with a gorgeous toasted hazelnut crust to enhance the chocolate hazelnut spread within the Nutella ganache. Yummy!
7. The Best Nutella Hot Chocolate
If you haven’t already tried concocting a hot chocolate with Nutella rather than the basic hot chocolate powder, then we must say, you’re missing out. The standard Nutella hot chocolate simply calls for a cup of milk and a couple of tablespoons of Nutella, but this best Nutella hot chocolate recipe from Pikture Nama adds cocoa powder to the mix. Looks beautiful when topped with whipped cream and marshmallows!
8. Nutella Fudge
Nothing says mouth-watering like some good old fashioned ooey-gooey fudge. And this Nutella fudge recipe from Splendry is both easy to make and is perfect as a holiday treat. Chopped up into bite-sized pieces, these are perfect as a dessert piece and are far less sweet traditional fudge due to the hazelnut flavour.
