If you have been baking for a while, chances are you have come across a Nutella Frosting recipe and thought, What? I can turn my favorite biscuit spread into a delicious dessert frosting? Why YES! Yes you can. Check out this EASY (and crazy delicious) Nutella Frosting recipe.
I am a huge fan of cakes and cupcakes and making my own desserts. While I am generally eating healthy for the most part, I figure that I deserve to cheat every now and then. And if I am going to cheat, I am going to do a really good job of doing it!
One of my favorite parts about making this easy Nutella Frosting is that it is really good on so many things. Whether you are making cakes of cupcakes, this is by far one of the best flavored toppings out there. Not only that, but the kids will destroy whatever you are putting this on!
I remember when I was growing up my mom would make this killer buttercream frosting. I mean this stuff was old school, but man was it good. I think I always weighed 5 pounds more after ingesting a cake or cupcakes that were decorated with her frosting. It was heavy, but it was GOOD.
Fast forward a bazillion years later and I am on a new favorite frosting kick. This stuff is so good you can seriously serve it on anything. It is a dessert frosting, but it seriously does taste good on a warm biscuit that is fresh out of the oven. I mean, if it’s just sitting there, you should use it, right? 🙂
Easy Nutella Frosting
The trick when making this easy Nutella frosting is to get it to the correct consistency. That’s easily accomplished as long as you are adding your required milk a little at a time. This is not one of those dump and make recipes. Altitude can really make a difference in recipes, so if you want to make sure this is thick enough for your tastes, then take it slow with the milk. Trust me!
How to make Nutella Frosting
Nutella frosting is generally really easy to make. You will need one stick of softened unsalted butter, 3 cups of powdered sugar, 3/4 cup of Nutella spread, and 2 Tbsp of milk. Just remember that when you make the frosting, you add the milk a little at a time, and use a little more or less to reach your desired consistency.
