Food Friday - Nutella Dip

Nutella Dip
adapted from Cooking Classy
Every once in awhile, I cook a little piece of heaven and this is one of those times.  I've never been a big, hooked-on fan of Nutella until I found little snack packs with cracker sticks at Wal-mart.  YUM!  When I saw this recipe I just had to try it and it so did not disappoint.  This is a "eat it with a spoon, standing by the fridge, in the middle of the night" kinda goodness.  I think you could take this dip and put it in a graham cracker crust to serve it as a cheesecake.  For real.  So fantastic it is hard to put it into words! :-)

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup Nutella

  • In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. In a separate mixing bowl, whip cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth, about 1 minute. Add nutella and blend until well combined. Add half of the whipped cream and gently fold mixture until nearly blended then add remaining whipped cream and gently fold mixture until well blended.Serve with strawberries or graham crackers. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
