Nutella and Red Berry Dessert Tacos
Nutella French Toast Rolls with Cinnamon Sugar
Remove the crusts from the slices of bread. Discard the crusts. Or eat them. Recipe from SteakNPotatoKindaGirl via FoodPorn.com.
Strawberry Nutella Sushi Cups
No raw fish around here. These decadent dessert “sushi” are filled with a fluffy Nutella mousse and juicy-sweet strawberries. Sweet sushi rice actually serves as a surprisingly delightful vessel for the classic strawberry-Nutella combo. If you plan to set these bite-size cups out for a party, you can also freeze them for 1 hour (instead of chilling in the fridge) so that the filling holds firm for a longer period of time at room temperature.
No-Bake Strawberry Nutella Cheesecake
Strawberry season is an indicator of two things; it means the sun is out and the oven is off. Take a break from a hot kitchen to make this easy, fresh and stress-free no-bake Nutella flavored cheesecake. The hazelnut spread not only gives the cheesecake a velvety texture and chocolatey taste, but it also helps stabilize the pie to set up a creamy yet firm consistency when chilled. The addition of condensed milk adds a touch of milky sweetness and the lemon juice creates a mellow, zesty flavor that balances the cheesecake’s sweetness. You can prepare the crust a day ahead and also chill cheesecake overnight. This cheesecake will be a hit at any summer event, and it’s a great way to use up the season’s favorite berry.
Nutella Iced Coffee
Don’t be surprised if this decadent, chocolatey twist on a typical iced coffee becomes your #1 caffeinated beverage of choice. While you can also prepare this Nutella Iced Coffee by whisking the ingredients together by hand, the blender makes creating a perfectly smooth beverage easy work. P.S. You do not want to skip out on the coffee ice cubes—they make this cool caffeine hit all the more delicious. To make them, simply freeze lightly sweetened coffee (you can use leftovers from your morning pot) in ice cube trays overnight.
This Monkey Bread Babka with Nutella Glaze Is Breakfast Pastry Goals
When asked about her inspiration for this monkey bread babka, James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Sherry Yard explained, "I'm a Brooklyn gal. I grew up with babka." But this isn't any old babka recipe. Served at the Tuck Room Tavern in Los Angeles, California, "Our dish brings babka it to a whole new level, topped with a cinnamon streusel, and we pour mocha hazelnut sauce over the top," Yard said. The dish is designed to be shared, as is everything on the brunch menu at Tuck Room. "I created the menu with shared dishes to start your brunch with, from the bite size smoked salmon popovers to the latke fries and, of course, our monkey bread."
Babka, a sweet pastry made by twisting together pieces of dough, can be a notoriously challenging for home cooks to make. And this recipe for monkey bread babka isn't for beginners. (You'll definitely need a stand mixer, for starters.) But that shouldn't deter an adventurous home baker from trying their hand at this sharable pastry for a weekend brunch. Yard has some tips for folks wanting to make this dish at home for a crowd. "Keep the filling 1 inch from the border," she noted, and emphasized the importance of scattering the filling evenly. "When rolling keep in small turns and keep it tight," Yard added.
Even if your monkey bread babka doesn't come out looking gorgeous, it'll still be delicious. Oh, and be sure to drizzle on the hazelnut chocolate sauce right at the end, ideally in front of your guests for maximum chocolatey impact.
Monkey Bread Babka with Nutella Glaze
First, make the brioche dough.
Once the dough is ready and done proofing, it's time to make the cocoa-sugar dust, streusel topping, and prep the chocolate filling. (All you have to do is put these ingredients in bowls, mix them up until combined, and set aside until you need them.)
Now make the Nutella glaze.
You're almost there! It's time to put it all together.
Addictive chocolate-hazelnut spread stars in our two-tone version of chocolate bark. Making bark is easy--just melt chocolate, spread it out, and add your favorite toppings. We added one important step, though: tempering the chocolate (carefully melting and cooling it to specific temperatures while adding large chunks of unmelted chocolate) so the bark stays shiny and snappy. The temperatures for dark chocolate and white chocolate are a bit different, so follow directions carefully for best results. For other flavor options, try Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark or White Chocolate, Pistachio, and Apricot Bark.
Nutella S'mores Dip
This easy, 5-ingredient S'mores Dip brings campfire flavors to the kitchen in less than 10 minutes.
Nutella Tiramisu in Jars
In this updated version of the classic Italian dessert, richly flavored Nutella adds to the decadence of creamy mascarpone, and the single-serving jars mean you don't even have to share. You'll need six 1/5-liter jars such as Weck, or you can use tall 1-cup canning jars.
Nutella Pie Pops
Two ingredients plus craft sticks are all you need to make these pie-on-the-go treats. The Nutella melts as the mini pies cook, so let them cool before tasting.
