Nutella Mousse

I made this Nutella mousse for my husband’s birthday, and it was so creamy and delicious!  I wanted to make a dessert that would be light and not too filling because we were having a heavy dinner.  Nutella is amazing and it makes recipes taste infinitely better (am I right?). This is my third, 5-or-less ingredients recipe, and this recipe is perfect because it only has 3 ingredients (yes!). This recipe yielded 2.5 ramekins which was perfect for my husband and I, but to make more ramekins, feel free to double it.  I adapted this recipe from one I found on the World Nutella Day website.  This recipe is easy to make and you can use whatever toppings you’d like. I just sprinkled hazelnuts on top of my mousse, but you could make more whipped cream or you could sprinkle chocolate shavings or raspberries on top too.  Nutella tastes wonderful with so many different flavors and that’s exactly why I love it so much (besides the fact that it tastes like pure bliss).  Hope you enjoy this recipe!


  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • Hazelnuts for sprinkling


  1. Whisk the Nutella and whipping cream until stiff peeks form.
  2. Divide the mousse between ramekins and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Top with chopped hazelnuts.
