Nutella is another word for MAGIC.  Yes it’s really a magical thing.  From the simple toast to a sophisticated dish, with Nutella it becomes a "Specialty".  We are nutella lovers and I have been using it for several years now.  It’s a staple in the kitchen and never run out of Nutella.   For the World Nutella Day 2013 here is a simple recipe which is easy to make with just 5 ingredients.  This dessert is so simple to make, but is very elegant and gourmet dessert.  It is wonderful to serve as a party dessert which can be prepared in no time, but very rich in taste. I am sure this will be a hit and everyone will ask for the recipe when they taste this classic combo.  These mini desserts are so cute and great way to impress your friends, family or anyone. Indulge your sweet tooth without eating huge portions.  Soft, Airy Nutella mousse with berries dusted with cocoa powder served with Nutella berry truffle does it sound interesting???? R u tempted??? Here is the recipe... Enjoy!!!



Makes 12 shot glasses.

Nutella - 3/4 cup
Heavy cream - 1 1/2 cup
Instant espresso powder - 1/2 tsp


1.  Mix the nutella and the espresso powder in the bowl.  Microwave the mixture in low power for 30 to 40 seconds.  Stir it every 10 seconds. 
2.  The consistency has to be like heavy cream.  Mix well and keep it aside.  Let it come to room temperature.
3. Now whip the cream until they form soft peaks.
4. Gently fold the whipped cream to the nutella mixture until they are blended well.
5. It will be super soft.  Refrigerate them for atleast 2 to 3 hrs.
6. Use them as desired.

I used this way...

1.  Fill the shot glass with few Raspberries (Off course you can fill it with your favorite fruit, but berries and banana is a classic combo with nutella)
2. Now fill it with the Nutella mousse. Refrigerate for minimum 2 to 3 hrs.
3. When serving dust with Cocoa powder and top it with Nutella berry Truffle.


Ingredients :

Nutella - as needed
Raspberries - few
Cocoa powder for dusting


1. Scoop nutella in a bowl. Put it in the freezer for just 15 to 20 minutes until they are slightly hardened.
2. Now using the melon scoop, scoop the nutella.   Slightly flatten it put a berry in the middle and make a rough ball.
3. Do the same with remaining nutella.  (This is little messy job but believe me nutella with sweet berry in the middle dusted with cocoa powder is Divine).
4. Put in the freezer for another 10 minutes until the rough balls are slightly hardened.
5. Remove it from the freezer and make nice balls and roll it in the cocoa powder until they are well coated.
6. Refrigerate until they are ready for serving.

Enjoy !!!
