nutella mousse dessert recipe

Okay, so you know how much I love an easy recipe that delivers huge, right?  Let me just say that I was beyond excited when I made this awesome Nutella Mousse!  It literally takes all of five minutes (minus chill time) and yet it turns out a creamy, delicious Nutella Mousse with endless possibilities.  And the best part?

There are only two ingredients.  TWO!!

Yep, this one is a major winner, folks.  And who doesn’t love Nutella?  This Nutella Mousse is right up there with my other Nutella favorite – Nutella Hot Chocolate – but I have to admit that I’m torn over which one I love most.  Possibly this one since it’s something that, with a few minor tweaks, you could actually serve at the end of a nice holiday meal or dinner party.  Try adding a layer or two of strawberries or raspberries, with a nice dollop of fresh whipped cream and some chocolate shavings to top it off. I usually just make it and enjoy it as is but it’s always nice to have easy ways to dress up your recipes.

Easy Nutella Mousse - uses just two ingredients!

    Am I the only person on the planet who has never tasted Nutella? People go crazy for this stuff, but I have never had any. This wonderfully (simple!) mousse may be the cure to that abnormality. GREG

    I am sooo in love with this site… and R.F. , too of course. Thank you for all the hard work you do. (I know it is! )

    You will answer me. You will!

    OK, with that out the way –

    Is this thick enough that I could chill it in piping bags and use it as a frosting?

      hahaha…Mr. P! From the fabulous deliciousdeliciousdelicious!! You KNOW I love your blog, right? :-) To answer your question…maybe. Truth be told, I'm not a huge cake and/or cupcake maker so I don't use frosting very often. Having said that, it's the consistency of whipped cream, and if you whip it to stiff peaks I don't see why it couldn't be a frosting. It does seem to firm up a bit more after it chills, too. So I say give it a shot! :-)

    Well, I might just do that!

    You know, I didn't even know you blogged. I figured it was RS only for you. I have been having a good root round, and love this place!

    • says

      Mr. P! I never "advertised" that I had my own blog; I figured RS was really for promoting others blogs, not my own. I really miss it although it's been fun getting to know everyone on a more personal level. So glad we connected here!

    This looks so great, but I can't have it, I put on some extra weight that I am now trying to lose and I blame it all on nutella and peanut butter, my 2 favorite indulgences.

  8. says

    I love Nutella and I love mousse. What a great combination. This sounds like a great recipe for entertaining. Easy, make ahead and delicous. Thanks for sharing! Now I'm off to check out your chocolate bowls with some other kind of mousse!

  9. says

    My all-time favorite go-to dessert when I need something quick or last minute. This time, serving it in chocolate piped edible bowls…next time I want to plan ahead and serve it in a layered mousse cake..mmmm.

    Sounds delicious, but more specifics would be helpful! How long does it take to get between “soft and stiff”? I am using the fastest whipping set on my mixer.

    • says

      Soft and stiff are terms used when whipping cream. If you lift your mixers out and the cream “stands” on its own as a little peak of whipped cream, that’s stiff. Soft will have a “soft peak” where it fall over slightly. Google it for pics which will really help if my explanation is still a little confusing.

    Everything was looking great as I was trying to figure out between stiff and smooth (about 4 minutes in) and then suddenly it curdled before my eyes! : (
