Quick and easy, No Bake Nutella Fudge is creamy, chocolaty, sweet and delicious, made in just minutes using your microwave.
- When melting the Nutella and butter, make sure you stop every 40 – 60 seconds to stir the mixture really well. Don’t skip the stirring step, as it may result in burning some parts of the Nutella, which will create lumps.
- Sift the confectioner’s sugar, it will improve the overall texture of the fudge. It’s one extra step, but it will take you just a few minutes.
- Store the fudge into an airtight container in the fridge, this will ensure it doesn’t become rock hard.
- chocolate chips, for extra chocolate and a nice crunch
- chopped, roasted hazelnuts, they are perfect in this rich dessert
- walnuts or pecans
- corn flakes cereal – this one is a huge hit all the time!
The fudge is definitely on the sweet side, but what can you expect from Nutella mixed with sugar? To cut the sweetness you can enjoy it with some coffee or a cup of milk. The kids totally love the sugar and will refuse the milk 🙂 The No Bake Nutella Fudge is a huge hit for playdates or as a hassle free, easy dessert for all the Nutella lovers!
Here is a fun step by step video of how to make this recipe:
Tools I used to make this easy No Bake Nutella Fudge:
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1 cup/2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- or 1 cup pecans, chopped
- or 1 cup hazelnuts, roasted and chopped
- Line two regular muffin tins with paper cups. Set aside.
- If using a rectangular or square pan, line it with aluminum foil, so there is extra foil sticking out on the sides to lift the finished fudge out.
- Add the Nutella and butter to a large bowl, microwave and stir the mixture every 40 - 60 seconds, until completely melted and smooth.
- Remove bowl from the microwave and stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Mix well with a rubber spatula.
- Add the sifted confectioners sugar and stir well until completely combined. If using any mix-ins, fold them in and stir well.
- Press the fudge into prepared baking pan or paper cups, smoothing the top with the back of a spatula. The top will appear somewhat oily, top with sprinkles. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the fudge is firm to the touch.
- Store fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
