Weekly Mix: Nutella

It’s hard to imagine a time that I didn’t know about Nutella. But, I only discovered it since I started this blog in 2006. In the spirit of making up for lost time, I do use it frequently in baking. And, honestly, it gets used up with a spoon directly in the jar, too.

I went through the archives here at BoB and found some of my favorite recipes that feature Nutella. If you’re a Nutella fan, too, then go ahead and check that you have some in your pantry. You’re going to want to do some baking!

Gianduia Brownies | Bake or Break

If we’re talking chocolate, brownies are a good place to start. Gianduia Brownies feature not only Nutella but a good dose of its components – chocolate and hazelnuts. Gianduia is just a fancy Italian name for that, you know. These brownies are big and dense and full of flavor.

Chocolate Hazelnut Cake | Bake or Break

I think about this Chocolate Hazelnut Cake often. I made it for Quinn’s birthday a few years ago, and it’s one of my favorites. The cake, much like those brownies, is full of Nutella, chocolate, and hazelnuts. There’s even some Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, for a little extra flavor. Plus, more chocolate and hazelnut goodness on top!

Nutella-Salted Shortbread Brownies | Bake or Break

I found these Nutella-Salted Shortbread Brownies purely by accident. And what a happy bit of serendipity that was! I adore shortbread and Nutella, so these are not surprisingly a favorite. Of course, the sweet and salty aspect doesn’t hurt either.

Chocolate-Glazed Hazelnut Mousse Cake | Bake or Break

This Chocolate-Glazed Hazelnut Mousse Cake is another of Quinn’s birthday cakes. Are you sensing a pattern? It’s a tad more involved than my usual baking fare, but it’s worth every bit of it. It’s cool and creamy and delicious, and it’s gorgeous, too!

Nutella Swirl Cheesecake Bars | Bake or Break

Combining Nutella with cheesecake is a magical thing. I love these Nutella Swirl Cheesecake Bars for their amazing flavor, simplicity, and aesthetics. Don’t you just love that swirl? If you want to make these even more chocolate-y, try using chocolate graham crackers or chocolate wafer cookies for the crust.

Hazelnut Blondies | Bake or Break

These Hazelnut Blondies are a more hazelnut than chocolate. The blondies themselves only have just a bit of Nutella, but a big dollop of Nutella on top of one of these is pure dessert joy.

As I mentioned last week, this month marks 7 years since I started Bake or Break. To celebrate, I’m giving away some of my favorite things. This week… Bundt pans! I don’t have nearly as many as I’d like, mostly due to storage limitations. But, I’m always thinking of ways to justify/store them.

    Why BoB; WHY despise your readers from the rest of the world?
    Just kidding. I just want the Original Platinum Collection.

    I love your block. For four years now I read it almost religiously. You are a great inspiration for me, and you can see that if you take a look at my blog. If it wasn΄t weird then most recipes I make would be yours.
    Thank you BoB

  4. What a great list of Nutella recipes! I don’t bake with it as much as I used to, guess I need to fix that.

    I’m that weirdo that doesn’t like Nutella. I hate hazelnuts, what can I say?

    What a great selection of recipes, I am particularly looking forward to trying the salted brownies. I haven’t used Nutella a lot in baking, in my house it just gets put on a piece of toast and served alongside a cup of tea!
