This Nutella dessert should be sweeping the nation any minute now

March 6, 2011

It’s really good. And absurdly easy:

Nutella-yogurt mousse with brownie chunks, raspberries and toasted hazelnuts

I just took fat free, plain, Greek yogurt (really any fat level Greek yogurt would work; the fatty ones would probably be that much tastier) and mixed it with a few tablespoons of Nutella, 1-2 tablespoons of Nutella per cup, depending on how chocolatey you want it. The batch pictured had some chopped up brownies I had leftover, raspberries and toasted hazelnuts, all layered like a trifle.

I’ve been making this sort of thing at work once a month or so, when I want to have a dessert, but don’t have a lot of extra time to bake something from scratch, or when I have leftover cake or cookies to use up (this is rare!)

If you like nutella, you’ll like this. The tangy Greek yogurt (which is pretty much just strained plain yogurt) goes perfectly with the Nutella.

Someone at work suggested mixing in dulce de leche (a sort of latin american caramel sauce) instead of Nutella, which sounds great. I also want to try making some homemade Nutella. And another batch of Greek yogurt ice cream. And coat it with some Nutella-coconut oil magic shell (a random idea which just struck me now; it seems like it would work.) I hope SmugMug HQ is up for testing all that goodness.

    April did some homemade Nutella like spread with peanuts instead of hazel nuts a while back, it was quite tasty… but that trifle looks even better.
