My children love Nutella so I’m always looking for new ways to use it. Typically, I use it alone on a sandwich or with peanut butter. I created an easy Nutella ganache recipe to dip some favorite snacks in. We dipped strawberries, animal crackers and pretzels- all were a hit. Ganache can be made with a few simple ingredients. One note- it doesn’t harden like tempered chocolate; it’s a bit softer. You should refrigerate to set it before serving.
If you have someone who doesn’t like Nutella or has a nut allergy you can easily switch it out for one of the Hersey chocolate spreads. If you have leftovers you can warm it in the microwave and use it as Nutella hot fudge on ice cream!
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 1/2 semi sweet or dark chocolate morsels
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- TBSP of butter
- pinch of kosher salt
- Melt Nutella, chips cream & butter in a double boiler (I use a bowl over a pot with simmering water).
- Stir until smooth
- Take off heat.
- Dip whatever you like into ganache or drizzle over your items.
- Place on parchment paper until set.
