Posted: February 4, 2023 10:02 am

Since it was first introduced in the 1960s, people can’t get enough of Nutella. This creamy, chocolatey spread with hints of hazelnut flavor is incredibly versatile. You can do everything from spread it on a slice of bread to bake it in a cake. Since World Nutella Day is just around the corner, now’s a perfect time to explore all that Nutella has to offer. Check out these tasty recipes that are sure to satisfy your Nutella cravings

No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

This dessert lets you enjoy all the flavors of Nutella without the hassle. You just blend together rich Nutella with soft cream cheese and other ingredients to make a sweet, creamy filling that pairs perfectly with a chocolatey Oreo crust. One of our favorite things about this Nutella spread recipe is that it gives you some hacks to make the whole recipe even simpler. If you’re not in the mood to make an Oreo crust, you can swap it out for a store-made one. The hardest part of this recipe is just waiting for it to finish setting in the refrigerator!

Nutellla Stuffed Pancakes

Of course, you can always toss some Nutella on top of a premade pancake, but this recipe takes cooking with Nutella to the next level. Adding the Nutella inside of the pancake creates pancakes that are extra sweet and moist. As you cook them, the Nutella melts into the surrounding dough. Though they might look like regular pancakes from the outside, cutting into them reveals the molten chocolate center. Does this tasty treat sound worryingly complex? Don’t worry, it’s a lot simpler than you might assume. Just follow the steps, and you’ll have impressive pancakes that make any breakfast into a special occasion.

Nutella Hot Chocolate

What’s better than a spoon of gooey Nutella straight from the jar? A whole cup of liquid Nutella you can slowly savor! This recipe creates a hot chocolate that’s practically like liquid Nutella. It uses plenty of traditional hot chocolate ingredients, but the hearty serving of Nutella gives it a nutty, creamy taste that really takes things to the next level.

Nutella, Banana, and Peanut Butter Sandwiches

We know a sandwich might not sound like the most revolutionary recipe in the world, but if you skip everything else on our list, this is the recipe you have to try. It’s simple, fast, uses ingredients you might already have at home, and it’s mind-blowingly good. What makes this recipe so special? Instead of just plain Nutella on bread, you assemble the sandwich and then fry both sides. This toasts the bread and melts the interior, so you end up with a crunchy, buttery outside and a gooey, chocolate center.

Overnight Chocolate-Hazelnut Breakfast Buns

Whether you’re making a festive brunch or just want to unwind on a weekend, these breakfast buns are a fantastic option. You assemble them the night before and let them rise in the fridge, so when you wake up, you just bake and enjoy. These rolls consist of soft, yeasty bread wrapped around a filling of Nutella and toasted hazelnuts. Just keep in mind that this recipe is a little more complicated than some of the other Nutella recipes on our list. It’s not overly challenging, but it’s best for when you have a bit of free time.

Nutella Ice Cream Three Ways

Have you ever taken a bite of Nutella and thought, “Wow, this would be a perfect ice cream flavor?” With these awesome recipes, you can turn Nutella into a cold, creamy treat. The great thing about this recipe is that it includes a lot of different methods for making ice cream. You can use a traditional machine, or you can try methods that just require a whisk and a freezer. The same basic ingredients create a fantastic ice cream whether you have an ice cream maker or not.

Sea Salt and Nutella Fudge

Nutella’s high fat and sugar content make it perfect for creating fudge. Unlike fudge recipes that require carefully boiling a bunch of ingredients for precise amounts of time, you can make Nutella fudge by just melting it in a pan with condensed milk, butter, and a few other basic ingredients. There are a lot of Nutella fudge recipes out there, but the sea salt in this one takes it to the next level. A sprinkle of coarse sea salt on top of the Nutella helps to balance the sweetness and add extra complexity to the flavor.

Nutella S’mores Bars

With their blend of nutty graham crackers, fluffy marshmallows, and melted chocolate, s’mores are a universal favorite. How can you make a classic fireside treat even better? Add Nutella and turn them into a baked good! These cookie bars have soft marshmallow fluff and oodles of Nutella sandwiched between a graham cracker crust. Technically, they’re a lot easier to eat if you wait until they’re cool and cut them into squares. However, we’ve found that it’s almost impossible to take them out of the oven without eating a big, melty scoop right out of the pan.

3-Ingredient Nutella Truffles

When you want something that’s both fast and delicious, it doesn’t get any easier than this recipe. Not only does it have a simple ingredient list, but it also uses a food processor to make the whole method a lot quicker. A great thing about this recipe is that it’s so versatile. Add a drop of peppermint and roll the balls in crushed peppermint candy to make a Christmas version, or add colorful sprinkles to make a festive birthday batch. When making this recipe, don’t be afraid to play around and try different flavors of Oreos as well.

Nutella Cookie Sandwiches

Nutella makes the perfect filling for cookie sandwiches. This recipe consists of crisp, crunchy hazelnut cookies with a layer of tasty Nutella in the middle. With a smooth drizzle of chocolate on top of each sandwich, these cookies end up looking especially tasty and elegant. They’re easy enough to make as an everyday treat, but they look stylish enough to serve at parties and other special events.

Nutella Peanut and Pretzel Snack Mix

This easy Nutella recipe is a delicious spin on the classic “puppy chow” snack mix. Instead of peanut butter and chocolate on cereal, this snack mix has peanut butter and Nutella on crunch pretzel snaps. The end result is a little salty, a little sweet, a little crispy, and completely delicious. Another fantastic thing about this recipe is that you can adjust it to suit your needs. Like more savory flavors? Swap out regular peanuts for honey-roasted. Prefer a more festive look? Toss in a handful of sprinkles. There are all sorts of great ways to personalize this snack mix for your next event.

Nutella Banana Muffins

These soft, moist muffins have a fruity texture similar to banana nut bread. The addition of Nutella takes the sweet banana dough to the next level. Rich swirls of Nutella blend throughout each muffin, so you get gooey chocolate as you bite into it. Though this recipe might sound rich and decadent, it’s actually reasonably healthy. The addition of bananas, whole wheat flour, and Greek yogurt means it contains plenty of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
