Nutella Whipped Cream

To start a new year, I feel like we should boost our confidence by making an easy recipe that blows all our minds. Nutella Whipped Cream has only two ingredients, takes about 5 minutes, and is amazingly delicious! Plus January 5th is National Whipped Cream Day, so why not celebrate?!

What you’ll need

All you need is a bowl and a mixer – either a stand mixer or a handheld mixer will work for this. If you don’t have a mixer, you’ll need a bowl, a whisk, and a strong arm! I like to use a metal bowl to make whipped cream because I think it keeps the cream colder, but any bowl will work!

How to make Nutella Whipped Cream

Start by beating the cream until it just starts to form very soft peaks. Add in Nutella and continue beating until stiff peaks form. In order to achieve stiff peaks, you want to make sure you’re working with cold cream.  I like to keep my cream in the refrigerator until I have everything else prepped and ready to go and then use the cream straight from the fridge. If you’re having trouble getting peaks, you can also measure out your cream first and put the measuring cup in the freezer while you prep your other ingredients and equipment.  This way it won’t be in the freezer long enough to freeze, but it will stay very cold. Another trick is to put your mixing bowl in the freezer for a bit before starting so you’re working with a cold bowl.

Common Questions

How long does whipped cream last?

Whipped cream can last a few days if stored in the refrigerator, but when possible, I like to make it as close to when I’ll be using it as possible, especially since it only takes a couple minutes to whip up (pun intended)!

Is whipping cream the same as heavy cream?

Heavy cream has a bit more fat than whipping cream, so it will form those stiff peaks a bit better, but whipping cream will might a slightly lighter whipped cream.  Either one will work for this recipe, so go with what you have on hand!

What can I use Nutella Whipped Cream for?

This can go on any desserts – cakes, pies, ice cream, the options are endless. It can also top your coffee or hot chocolate, your pancakes or waffles, or it can even serve as a delicious dip for your fruit!
