Homemade Nutella filling:
Who doesn´t like Nutella?
I just love it!
There is something magical about mixing chocolate with hazelnuts, and to add that into a very rich chocolate cake is even better.
Nutella filling can be a very popular one and even though you can use the Nutella directly from the jar, it can be too sweet or too thick to add to your cake.
Let me share with you the recipe I use. It is not absolutely mine, found it online but it really works.
- 200 grams of dark chocolate.
- 100 g. of heavy cream.
- 1 tablespoon of butter. The original recipe was unsalted, but I like to use salted butter
- 200 grams de Nutella
First melt the chocolate in Bain Marie or in the microwave at minimum intensity so the chocolate won’t burn. Then add the cream and the butter little by little mixing well until combined. Finally add the Nutella and there you go!
Let it rest and cool before using, I like to leave it on the fridge overnight for better texture. Just take it out of the fridge about 30 min before using.
This makes a delicious and very firm filling great for cakes or piping into a cupcake.
Hope you like it!
