Don’t have a favorite dessert recipe that calls for Nutella? We can help with that. Here are 17 of our favorites that are sure to satisfy your chocolate-and-hazelnut cravings.
Our one-ingredient banana ice cream is a favorite around here, but when you’re looking for a little variety, there are some easy ways to upgrade it. One way is to add in a healthy scoop of Nutella for a chocolatey banana ice cream.

Nutella’s hazelnut-chocolate-eat-me-surreptitiously-from-a-jar-with-a-spoon appeal has not abated in the years since it crossed the pond from Italy, and this easy recipe for Nutella fluff is just what it sounds like: that chocolate-hazelnut flavor, but fluffy, creamy, and cool.

This is all dessert: Nutella, cream cheese, a sprinkle of salt, and the best crusty Italian bread you can find, sliced as thin as you can.
