I’ve never really made it a secret around here that the dessert table is where you will usually find me at parties. I have this thing called a sweet tooth that never seems to be satisfied.

This Nutella Dip is everything I dream about when it comes to desserts. Not only is the dip itself a delicious blend of cream cheese with that chocolate and hazelnut flavor we all love… but you dip more sweets into it!

I know, I know… sweets dipped in sweets. There’s no such as going overboard when it comes to party food.

Things to Dip in Nutella Dip

Really, the sky is the limit with this! I normally raid my pantry to see what I have available. Since you’re only putting a small amount of each item out on the platter, this is a great way to use up the ends of some of your dippers.

Here are some of my go-to dippers for Nutella Dip:

  • Nilla wafers
  • Rice Krispie Treats
  • Apple Slices
  • Pretzels
  • Graham Crackers
  • Animal Crackers
  • Strawberries
  • Banana slices
  • Grapes
  • Mandarin Oranges

One piece of advice, if you’re going to serve it with a fruit that browns quickly (i.e. apple slices or bananas), sprinkle your fruit with a fresh fruit preserver. I’ve been using Mrs. Wage’s Fresh Fruit Preserver for years now!

One bottle lasts forever and it works like a charm! No more browning fruit on your pretty tray! Plus this helps you out since you can slice your fruit ahead of time rather than waiting till the last minute!

How to Make Nutella Chocolate Dip Recipe

Any recipe that has less than 5 ingredients is a star in my book! This one gets extra credit because it can be made ahead of time so you’re not rushing around right as guests are arriving!

Start by whipping your whipping cream in a large stand mixer until stiff peaks form. This means when you stop the beaters and lift them, the whipping cream will come with the beaters and stand up on it’s own (forming little peaks). Then set this aside.

In another bowl, add your softened cream cheese and powdered sugar and beat until well combined and smooth. Make sure your cream cheese is softened so you don’t have any lumps in your dip.

Add Nutella to the cream cheese mixture and blend completely.

Then take about half of the whipped cream that you beat previously, and gently fold that into your nutella mixture. I like to use a rubber spatula to fold it in. Continue to fold it in until it’s nearly blended. Then fold in the remainder of the whipping cream until it is all completely blended and uniform in color.

At this point, you can cover it with saran wrap and place it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it. If you want, you can garnish it with some chocolate curls or some mini chocolate chips if that’s easier!

I made this last week for my son's birthday party (he's a Nutella addict lol) and it was a HUGE hit. My son was so sad that there weren't any leftovers so I had to make it for again. So good!
