Tempted to try? You have to read on to find out what the 9 Easy Nutella Recipes You Can Try At Home are! Nutella lovers, you have been warned.
#1 NUTELLA OREO COOKIES
Everyone loves Oreo Cookies, but when the decadent Nutella spread marries the combination of the chocolate biscuits and cream filling – it hits all the right notes which will leave you craving for more. And yes, you should totally show this off on Instagram and tell everyone how they have been eating Oreo the boring way. Dunking our Oreo’s into milk will now be a second option.
Pry open the oreo cookies, and simply spread the Nutella onto the cream filling, then piece the chocolate biscuits back together. Voila! Oreo made better.
#2 NUTELLA BROWNIES
Nutella Brownies are an easy feat. When done well, it forms a fudgy and cakey texture that will have you falling in love over and over again. We had a ball of fun whipping up this delicious creation, and guess what? This recipe only took us 3 ingredients and 30 minutes to prepare!
1 1/4 cup Nutella
1/2 Self-raising flour.
Chopped Walnuts (Optional)
Preheat the oven at 180 Degree Celsius. Mix all the ingredients together till smooth, and pour the mixture into a baking dish that is lightly brushed with oil/ butter. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on the batter, then put to bake for around 20-25 minutes. Allow it to cool before serving.
#3 NUTELLA MUG CAKES
Surprise, surprise! These gorgeous no-bake mug cakes only took us 5 minutes to assemble. Best part? Every bite was packed with a resounding burst of flavours. Serve them with marshmallows, or you can even top it with your favourite fruits. Granted, this mother of all Nutella recipes is the first you should get your hands on.
4 tablespoons Self-raising flour
3 tablespoons Nutella
2 tablespoons Milk
3 tablespoons Vegetable/ olive oil.
Icing sugar (optional)
Combine the ingredients together and mix until smooth. Pour the mixture into a mug (choose a pretty one if you are intending to take a hundred photos of it!), then pop it into the microwave oven for approximately 2 minutes on ‘high’. Sprinkle some icing sugar for a finishing touch.
#4 NUTELLA POPSICLES
Nutella Popsicles can be made with a grand total of two ingredients, and we love how they resemble our childhood favourite PaddlePops! This snack is a crowd-pleaser among children and also serves as a fuss-free dessert for anyone who has a sweet tooth.
1 cup Milk
1/3 cup Nutella
Mix the Nutella and milk together until the Nutella has completely melted. It would be easier if you heat your milk up a little before mixing the Nutella in. Then, simply pour the mixture into your popsicle moulds. Freeze for around 3 hours before serving.
#5 NUTELLA S’MORES
S’mores are essentially dessert sandwiches made of two graham crackers, melted marshmallows and a chocolate spread of your choice. But of course, being the huge Nutella fans we are, we decided to create our own rendition of the dessert with a Nutella spread. Why not, right?
2 Graham Biscuits (Or just any biscuits of your choice)
Sit the marshmallow on one side of the graham biscuit and pop it in the oven for around 5 to 10 minutes at 120 Degree Celsius. In the meantime, spread the Nutella on the other side of the biscuit. Once the marshmallow has melted, take the graham biscuit out of the oven and piece the two biscuits together. Best served hot.
#6 NUTELLA FUDGE
This rich and creamy dessert is definitely the most sinful one of the lot (you will soon find out from the ingredients list), but that did not deter us from experimenting with the recipe. These gorgeous Nutella Fudge got our taste buds tickling with excitement, and yes, you need to try it too. Forget about calories; they don’t count when we are partying with Nutella.
1 cup Nutella
2 sticks Butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup diced Walnut (optional)
Line a baking pan with Aluminium Foil. Melt the Nutella and butter together in a bowl – you may want to seek some help from the microwave oven to do so. Continue stirring the mixture until it smoothens out. Add in the rest of the ingredients, and stir them together until the mixture thickens. Pour the concoction into the baking pan while smoothing the top. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, and cut them up to your desired size before serving.
#7 NUTELLA COFFEE MILKSHAKE
Nutella Coffee Milkshake is probably the most decadent dessert drink to serve at a house party. Or it can simply be a sweet treat, because we do not exactly need a reason to reward ourselves. It requires the use of everyday ingredients which you can easily get from any supermarket – no more excuses to not make them!
2 scoops of Vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup Coffee
2 tablespoon Nutella
Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend – yes, that is all you need to do!
#8 NUTELLA ICE CREAM
Nutella Ice Cream? Well, yes please! This scores as a comfort food for many, and even though it requires ingredients that are less sought after, we promise that the efforts would be worth it.
1 cup Nutella
1 cup Condensed milk
1 cup Heavy cream / Thick cream
In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream with a whisk until it becomes stiff – to the point where the cream would not topple even when you flip the mixing bowl upside down. Add in the Nutella and condensed milk and continue beating the mixture until it becomes stiff again. Freeze it for 5 hours or more before serving.
#9 NUTELLA FRENCH TOAST
French Toasts are incredibly easy to prepare, and the ingredients are very cheap and easy to find – just eggs and bread is all you need. But we like ours jazzed up with Nutella; it will make a splendid breakfast to get you pumped up for the day. Don’t forget to throw in some berries!
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them until they turn fluffy. Sponge the bread in the egg mixture and fry it till golden brown – the control of fire is important as you would not want the bread to become charred. Lastly, slather your Nutella spread in between the slices of goodness, add your favourite berries, and breakfast is ready!
