2 Ingredient Nutella Mousse

I have a sweet tooth, just a quick look at some of the posts on the blog is a dead giveaway. I have to eat something sweet everyday, erm, lets just say sometimes for fear of sounding like a crazy person. From mug cakes to chocolate and everything in between. Having any kind of sweet treats lying around the house has become my weakness, as a result we no longer buy chocolate or the like. This includes Nutella, that beautiful, chocolate, hazelnutty goodness. It never lasts in our house, a medium sized tub would last a week at best. The sad reality is that I cannot control myself around Nutella, so we no longer buy the stuff. It’s chocolate hazelnut gold, I tell you!

Ok, Nutella avoidance aside, when we have had Nutella in the house, I haven’t just eaten it on bread or toast or just with a spoon out of the jar, I’ve also made Nutella mousse. You can easily make a quick single serve or make a big bowl of the stuff. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser.



2 Ingredient Nutella Mousse (1)



I by no means invented this. If you search the internet you’ll be flooded with recipes. However at the time of making it, I wasn’t aware there were 2 ingredient versions out there or aware of just how easy it is to make. I kinda just threw it together in a bowl and mixed.

For the quick and easy single serve version, all you’ll need is 1 teaspoon of Nutella and 2 tablespoons of thickened cream. Just put them together in a bowl and mix until smooth and combined then hide behind the couch before anyone catches you, you won’t want to share.

Below you’ll find a recipe for a bigger version, fill it into a large bowl and decorate with chocolate shavings, cookie crumbs or go fresh with strawberries and raspberries. Or you can do what I did and fill them into individual small pots like below.

A quick and easy 2 ingredient delight, sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup nutella
  • 1½ cups chilled thickened cream

Instructions
  1. Beat your cream until soft peaks form.
  2. Place your Nutella into a heatproof bowl and warm for about 10 seconds in the microwave. Ensure your Nutella isn’t too hot, you just want to warm it enough so that the texture is slightly more runny.
  3. Pour your Nutella into the cream and fold gently until combined.
  4. Serve as is or decorate with chocolate or fresh fruit.
