I am a frosting girl. That’s me. Hi.

I can’t be on your team if you have ever uttered the words, that’s “too sweet” or, “I scraped the frosting off”.

Just no.

Quick and Easy Whipped Nutella Frosting Recipe

My people ask for a corner piece…an extra rose (or two).

My people eat the frosting first…you know, to make sure it’s the RIGHT kind of frosting. No fake stuff allowed. Only the real deal for my brethren. If the frosting ain’t right, the cake ain’t worth it.

I should really write bumper stickers.

Anyhow, today I am sharing with you maybe my new favorite food. And DEFINITELY my new favorite frosting.

I don’t want to be all exaggeratey, but today’s pretty major.

Whipped Nutella Frosting. OHHHYEZZZZY.

My Favorite Hazelnut Frosting For Desserts

I have to tell you this frosting never made it onto a cupcake, or a cookie or even a toothbrush. It went straight from the mixing bowl and into my face. And when I ate so much I couldn’t feel my fingertips any longer I gave the rest to my neighbors, where they also ate it with a spoon, from the bowl.

I was going to make dark chocolate cupcakes and pipe a giant swirl of this creamy love fluff on top. But it never stood a chance.

It’s THAT good.

So I will say make this at your own risk…because I know it’s not health food or anything. But I’m pretty sure you deserve a giant heap of frosting in your face right now.

I know this because you are my people.

And if you’re the type with self-control you betcha it will be great on THESE cupcakes! Or THIS cake! Or even in place of the mousse on THIS CAKE!

Or you know…straight off a spoon 🙂

Enjoy!

My frosting didn’t turn out like the light color you posted it’s still dark like chocolate. Should I add more of something?

I don’t generally post comments but this recipe is really both easy and delicious. Being on stay at home orders, I tried to use what we had for a cake. My kids love Nutella so we used it and it turned out better than I would have expected. It is chocolate-y but not too heavy. I is actually really light and whipped up.

Would this have to be refrigerated due to the heavy whipping cream?

This is a pretty tasty frosting. However if you’re planning on filling and frosting a standard 24 batch of cupcakes with a swirl frosting pattern on top, you’ll need to make a double batch. I didn’t even do very full frosting on the top and I ran out with about 5 cupcakes to go.

Are the Nutella lumps normal? Just wondering if yours comes out that way too or if I should warm my Nutella lighting so it’s not too thick?

Can’t wait to make this for my sister’s birthday! Can you suggest the perfect cake to accompany this? Would you do yellow or chocolate? I can totally appreciate your love of this frosting. There was a pastry shop I had gone to for 45 years. Hands down best buttercream in the world. I too would eat it by itself, and actually bought it in a container on occasion. Whenever we did our death row last meal it always included this. I would always say if I had to choose between one million dollars or a bowl of this buttercream, I… Read more »

This was delicious! The directions were easy to follow and gave the desired result (even though this is only the second frosting I’ve ever made, and the first in over 10 years. We haven’t eaten it with the cake yet, but it was delicious out of the bowl, even after refrigerating overnight. We can’t stop eating it, so I decided to leave this review! Also loved that it didn’t call for heavy cream, and just whole milk. I usually don’t have the former, but do have the latter for my 2 year old, who is still asking for more! Thanks… Read more »
