Nutella Chocolate Mousse

Nutella Chocolate Mousse

February 13, 2017   18 Comments

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and this Nutella chocolate mousse is my treat!

It has a whopping TWO ingredients and is really easy to make. Last year, I debut my No Sugar Added Chocolate Mousse and it went viral.

This year, I went simpler.

The sugar is in the Nutella which is a hazelnut, chocolate, sugary spread that I had never had until I was lucky enough to visit France in 1989. That was a WHILE ago and now you can find this stuff next to the peanut butter in the USA.

It is delicious and very addictive so do not buy a huge container of it. I bought 7 ounces and that was the right amount to have around the house.

The Nutella mousse is fluffy just like the snow outside my window.

Isn’t that beautiful? I love sitting in here looking out there. I don’t really love going out there so I leave that to my dog (and kids). The snow is perfect right now. It is like living in a dreamy cloud.

The Nutella chocolate mousse takes about 1 minute to make (don’t tell your Valentine) and will impress even the most devoted chocaholic. You simply whip the whipping cream and fold in Nutella. Done. You can make it ahead as it stores well.

Do not put Nutella in the refrigerator (you should store the mousse in the fridge) – it will become too hard to spread.

I make some plain whipped cream before I make the mousse as a delicious topping. You can't miss with this recipe.

I think this recipe is pretty light but as far as SmartPoints goes – this clocks in at 7! It is probably because of the saturated fat in the cream.

You don’t need a lot of this to enjoy it. A little bit goes a long way toward satisfying your sweet tooth. It is like a fluffy chocolate hazelnut ice cream.

Do you eat Nutella? What do you do with it?

What is the gram or ounce measurement per serving. I'd like to use my food scale to measure accurately.

Nutella has 10SP per 2 Tbs; most likely the 21g of sugar and 4g of saturated fat per serving. It is delicious, but a special once in a while treat in our house!!! (My kiddos loved Nutella spread on crepes and rolled up with powdered sugar in Germany!)

Another homerun! Have you tried peanut butter & chocolate? Lisa, you are an awesome food inventor! Its always fun to see what you're up to :)
My son buys this chocolate-hazelnut spread for occasional indulgences (which has 12g sugar vs 21g in Nuella, plus better ingredients overall) and now I do too: https://www.amazon.com/Nocciolata-Organic-Hazelnut-Spread-9-52/dp/B00MFNAKQY/ref=pd_sim_325_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3JRXDWDDQ7NAZN7S529F

I also found a very easy and quick home-made chocolate-hazelnut spread that I will be doing soon since I keep many types of toasted nuts in my freezer already! I really enjoy making my own processed foods like this one, and know the ingredients and nutrition of the end product.

I LOVE Nutella and can easily over-do!! Any chance this recipe would work with Cool Whip Free instead of heavy whipping cream?

on February 13, 2017

Lisa -- is that a 'typo?' --is it l and a quarter cup Nutella, or 1/4 cup?

Nutella is so delicious to me it's one of the items I cannot have in my pantry; too hard a time resisting it, but this sounds like a great special dessert. Thanks!

I would like clarification on the amount of Nutella as well, please. Anxious to try this one!

I guess I'm an oddball! A friend brought me a jar of Nutella awhile back and guess what?
I really couldn't figure out what all the shouting was about! I didn't much care for it as a spread. Having grown up with a mom who's basic tenet was "waste not, want not", I'm going to give your latest concoction a try with what's left in the Nutella container. Sounds like a very nice topping. (Please don't hate me all you Nutella lovers out there!)

Would also be interested to know if Nutella and fat free or light Cool Whip would work for the chocolate mousse recipe?

on February 13, 2017

I had a technical glitch that made the recipe unclear - sorry about that. It is 1/4 cup Nutella or 4 tablespoons.
@Beth - it is a 2 ounce serving but whipped so seems like more.
@Sallie - I think that you could fold Nutella into just about anything and it would work. I haven't tried Cool Whip but why not?
Thank you for your questions!

Lisa - Thank you so much for your response. For someone who doesn't like Nutella (I wish that was me but it isn't!), I'll bet Cookie Butter would work well, too. Tasty but no nutrition in it.

Where is the chocolate in this Nutella Chocolate Motsse?

on February 13, 2017

@Kim on the Nutella label, at the bottom, it says "Hazelnut Spread with Cocoa"... that's the chocolate

You had me at Nutella....

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks Lisa. I saw that after I submitted my comment. I guess I am Nutella Naive! Can't wait to try the recipe.

I made this yummy treat for Valentines Day ...I even simplified it...I used lite Cool Whip and then sliced strawberries on top ....big hit...a definite do again!!

For those wishing to lighten the calories and fat in whipping cream [104 cal/2 tbsps; 18g fat/2 tbsp], you could probably use ''So Delicious Coco Whip-Lite'' [25 cal/2tbsp; 2g fat/2tbsp] instead of Cool Whip which is a very unhealthy product. Following is some data on both.

There are also some pretty pretty tasty-looking treats in the cocowhip recipes!

Thanks for the idea, Nutella usually ends very quickly when I buy it, because of me, I love it. I hope to cook this recipe before I eat it
