Sweet Tooth: The 15 Best Nutella Recipes Ever

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Food

Even though it was first introduced to the commercial market all the way back in 1964, Nutella has really started becoming a worldwide phenomenon over the past few years.  In fact, the brand sells one jar of Nutella every 2.5 seconds these days. The hazelnut chocolate spread is one of the most delicious tasting foods known to man (alongside Sriracha hot sauce of course), and we are obsessed to say the least. While many people like to use Nutella as spread, we prefer to eat it straight from the jar. After putting down a few hundred jars though, we decided it was time to explore the vast possibilities of this delicious spread. We scoured countless cooking blogs and cookbooks looking for the very best Nutella recipes out there, and after cooking up a large amount of them ourselves, these are the 15 best Nutella recipes we came across.

Nutella Smores Pizza

1. Nutella S’mores Pizza

S’mores recipes are a dime a dozen, but a s’more pizza infused with Nutella? Now that’s a homerun. S’mores are one of our favorite dessert treats, and pizza is our favorite food group (yeah we know, it’s not a real food group). This is a recipe for success any way you slice it. [View Recipe]

Nutella Hot Chocolate

2. Nutella Hot Chocolate

What better way to spend those cold evenings in the upcoming holiday season than a mug filled with Nutella hot chocolate? The homemade whipped cream is icing on the cake for a classic recipe enhanced by our love for hazelnut. [View Recipe]

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

3. Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Banana nut bread is something we’ve always enjoyed, but elevate that typical recipe with some dark swirls of Nutella, and now you’ve got a real mouth watering loaf of bread on your hands. [View Recipe]

Sweet Spicy Bacon Coated with Nutella

4. Sweet & Spicy Bacon Coated with Nutella

We have constantly professed our love for bacon in the past, so it goes without saying that this was easily the most exciting recipe on the list – and it lived up to the hype. After cooking up a solid batch of bacon, we were a bit hesitant to smother it in Nutella, but it was well worth it. [View Recipe]

Nutella Donuts

5. Nutella Donuts

If we had to pick one breakfast food to eat for the rest of our lives, it would probably be donuts. For that reason we included several donut recipes on the list. This particular one sees a kickass donut recipe finished off with a Nutella frosting. [View Recipe]

Chocolate Nutella Stuffed Pancakes

6. Chocolate Nutella Stuffed Pancakes

If you like chocolate chip pancakes, you’re going to love chocolate hazelnut pancakes. The Nutella is added to the batter, which makes these pancakes great even without the pictured butter, syrup, and bananas – but who eats pancakes without butter and syrup? [View Recipe]

Nutella Freezer Fudge

7. Nutella Freezer Fudge

In just 5 minutes you can transform that creamy jar of Nutella into these frozen blocks of chocolate hazelnut fudge. Add some coconut oil, natural cocoa powder, pure pumpkin puree, and Agave nectar, and you’ve got yourself a batch of fudge worthy of feeding 20 people. Well if each persona only eats one piece . [View Recipe]

Nutella Banana Crepes

8. Nutella Banana Crepes

Personally we prefer sweet over savory when it comes to crepes. They’ve always been more of a dessert food in our eyes, so this recipe was a match made in heaven. It’s worth noting that these are best served fresh. You can store them away for later, but don’t – you’ll thank us later. [View Recipe]

Nutella Sticky Buns

9. Nutella Sticky Buns

It’s almost as if every recipe gets better than the last, and seeing how delicious cinnamon sticky buns are, we knew this would be a tough one to beat. We were right. Finished off in Nutella, nutty caramel sauce, and a bit of glaze, these sticky buns are some of the best we’ve ever had. [View Recipe]

Nutella Filled Sugar Donuts

10. Nutella Filled Sugar Donuts

We warned you that we had an affinity for donuts, which means we had to find a standard donut, and a “cream” filled one. Here’s the latter. Instead of packing the sugar donut with cream or jelly, these have been filled with Nutella. Definitely not part of a balance breakfast, not that we care one bit. [View Recipe]

Nutella Instant Iced Coffee

11.  Nutella Instant Iced Coffee

If you prefer iced over hot coffee, this recipe is for you. This cold brew features generous splashes of Nutella and a bit of milk to jump start your day. [View Recipe]

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

12. Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate cookies are an absolute classic when it comes to dessert, and this recipe does the iconic cookies justice. If you have a chocolate addiction, this is the recipe for you. If you don’t have a chocolate addiction, you will after this. [View Recipe]

Banana Nutella Stuffed French Toast

13. Banana & Nutella Stuffed French Toast

Some people prefer French Toast over pancakes to start their mornings off. Personally, we’ll eat whatever someone else is cooking. This recipe is similar to previously featured Nutella pancakes, but swaps out the pancakes in favor of French Toast. The Bananas almost make it feel healthy. We said almost.  [View Recipe]

Nutella Pudding

14. Nutella Pudding

This was one of the most enjoyable recipes on the entire list, because we can see ourselves making this one regularly. As we stated previously, we love to eat Nutella right out of the jar, and this pudding keeps the consistency similar to what we already love. Each batch claims it serves 8. If you’re like us, make 2 batches if you plan on sharing. [View Recipe]

Nutella Brownies

15. Nutella Brownies

You didn’t think we’d make a list of the best Nutella recipes without including brownies did you? The finished product is decadent, gooey, and just downright delicious. You can’t go wrong with brownies…ever! [View Recipe]
