Let’s be real, Nutella is basically its own food group. Anyone can tell you that there’s a special sort of bond between a girl and her Nutella that’s somewhere between an unhealthy obsession and true love. Well, Nutella lovers everywhere rejoice because here are 7 mouthwatering recipes to make with our favorite hazelnut-chocolate spread.
2-Ingredient Nutella Mousse
Did we mention it was only 2 ingredients? And one of them is Nutella? So what excuse do you have to NOT make this ASAP? Best part is that it’s quick, seems fancier than it is, and you can top it with any other goodies you like. Click here for the recipe.
Nutella Mug Cake
Hooray for lazy-girl baking! It’s the perfect size for a sweet little pick-me-up and only takes three minutes. Have one (or 7, whatever), all you need is a good sized mug and a microwave. Here’s how to make it ASAP.
Nutella Chunky Ice Cream
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Nutella ice cream! Why hit up Dairy Queen for soft serve vanilla when you can make your own Nutella frozen treat? This recipe is a little more advanced and the ice cream has to sit overnight, but if you can wait that long, we promise it’ll be worth it. Give it a try!
Baked Nutella Donuts
Emphasis on the baked (aka not fried) part because that means it’s sorta healthier for you (that’s what we’re telling ourselves, at least). You do need a donut pan (which you can buy here in regular and mini size!) but besides that, it’s a pretty straightforward process. What are you waiting for? Get cooking!
Nutella (Gluten Free!) Crepe Cake
Even if you’re not gluten free, this cake looks amaaaazzzing. Warning, it is pretty hard to make crepes (because they’re so delicate) but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t attempt. May the odds be in your (and Nutella’s) favor. It’s worth a try!
Nutella & Banana Stuffed French Toast
Brunch just got better now that you have the recipe for Nutella-inspired French toast. It’s the perfect combination of savory and sweet. Not a fan of bananas? Substitute them with strawberries or marshmallow fluff. Good thing this goes perfectly with mimosas.
Impress all your friends by making your own homemade Pop-tarts! They’re super cute when they’re done and the author of this recipe added step-by-step pictures that will ensure your success. You’ll never go back to regular strawberry-frosted Pop-tarts again.
So next time you reach for Nutella and a spoon (no judgment, we’ve all done it), consider making these recipes instead. It’s the perfect opportunity to show off your culinary skills and fix your Nutella cravings at the same time.
