Calling all Nutella, Hazelnut Lovers!!! This one’s for you! Easily the yummiest buttercream frosting out there. I am yet to meet a person that does not like the taste of Nutella and if you have a sweet tooth (like me!!), then you will absolutely go crazy for this recipe!
- 100g Unsalted Butter (softened, so remove from the fridge about 1 hour, this will depend on your climate, before using)
- 150g Nutella
- 225g Icing/Powdered Sugar
- 3 to 4 tablespoons Milk (Whole milk is best, but any will do)
HOW TO MAKE NUTELLA BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer for this recipe. If using a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment.
Start by measuring out the butter, cut it into cubes and add to your mixing bowl. Beat for about 5 minutes or until the butter has lightened in color and doubles in amount. It will be light and creamy.
Add the nutella and mix again for about 2-3 minutes to combine the butter and nutella.
Add half of the sifted icing/powdered sugar to the bowl and mix really well after each addition. You want the sugar to fully incorporate with the butter so that it isn’t grainy and becomes thick and fluffy.
Then add the milk a tablespoon at a time until you achieve the consistency that you would like.
- This frosting goes really well with either Vanilla or Chocolate Cakes and Cupcakes. You can find great recipes for these here:
Using a frosting knife or piping bag with tip attached, you are now ready to use your delicious Nutella Buttercream Frosting.
