I bet you haven’t tried this recipes yet!
If you haven’t tried the rich, creamy decadence that is Nutella, then your mouth is missing out. Nutella is a whipped hazelnut-chocolate concoction that was surely created in the heavens before the chocolate gods decided to bless us mere mortals with its presence. If eating it straight from the jar isn’t enough, it’s time to step up your Nutella-gorging game and try some of these recipes.
Coffee S’mores Pie
Pie, coffee, chocolate, hazelnut? Score! This pie from the Bon Appetit blog is nestled in a crispy graham cracker crust while the filling is a simple mixture of Nutella, heavy cream, semi-sweet chocolate, and butter. Whip them together and pour the fluffy blend into the pie crust. A coffee ganache will then be drizzled over the top before you top it with an airy meringue. There’s minimal baking involved, so you can easily have this in your mouth in about two hours from the moment you crave it. Get the full recipe here.
The coffee-Nutella combo is never going to get old. This recipe gives you another way to consume Nutella—slowly sipping rather than with a spoon. It’s ridiculously easy, and may steer you away from Starbucks for good (until your pants get too tight and you need to start drinking your Skinny Vanilla again). All the recipe takes is two cups of milk, a 1/2 cup of Nutella, and a 1/2 tablespoon of espresso powder. Heat the milk then dump it into a blender with the Nutella and espresso powder. Blend until mixed and then pour half into cups. Froth the remaining milk mixture and pour into the cups. Die of bliss. The end.
These brownie/cupcake hybrids are a great “throw together” recipe if you need to impress someone or beg for forgiveness for your transgressions. Using John Wm. Macy’s Chocolate Sweetsticks, Nutella, flour, and eggs, you’ll have moist, dense, and not-too-sweet brownies that will send you into peals of delight. Top it with your favorite frosting (Nutella frosting, perhaps?) and you’ll have anyone in the palm of your hand. The recipe can be found here, and the Sweetsticks can be ordered through the John Wm. Macy’s site.
Two Ingredient No-Flour Cake
Just two ingredients to happiness, you say? Done. The Kirbie’s Cravings blog has blessed us with this easy Nutella concoction. You’ll whip eggs until they triple in volume (about 6 minutes—you’ll need a mixer for this) and then carefully fold in softened Nutella in three small batches. This will keep the mixture light and fluffy. You’ll bake in a parchment paper lined pan and be treated with the most beautiful and delicious cake you’ve ever tasted. Find the recipe here.
