Maybe I’m a little behind, but I never thought about adding Nutella to pudding. Genius? Maybe.

I got the idea from a tart recipe of which I also tried, which I shared here.

It involves strawberries…

In the meantime, let’s all stare at the yumminess that is this Nutella pudding.

Since I like to eat Nutella with pretzels, I thought I’d use them as a spoon of sorts for these pudding bowls.

You might need a bigger spoon though. Don’t you just want to dive in there?

You can justify this dish by saying that you are just adding protein (milk) to your Nutella, thereby making it healthier.


At least that’s what I told myself.

I’m a big fan of Nutella. I was looking for easy dessert recipes that have Nutella and came across this one. I actually discovered this recipe from an app called Yummly that I use to find good recipes. It only had the ingredients of the dessert, so I decided to visit your website to see the instructions of making it (I found the name of the website on Yummly too, where they say somewhere on the recipe who made it). Anyways, today I made the Nutella Pudding, but I used corn flour instead of cornstarch where it said on the recipe. I’m not sure whether I should have used cornstarch or I could still use corn flour since they’re kinda the same, but the Nutella Pudding turned out great. Really liked it!

I'm making this right now and it's in the pot and I'm waiting for it to boil and it does not seem like this is going to work the texture just seems like milk that's a bit thickened, is it supposed to be like this?

Pudding thickens as it cooks (with the cornstarch), and even more so after it chills.

We had this for dessert tonight. Delicious! Um ... this does not make four servings. It makes two servings. :)

I'm sure I could eat it all myself and just make it one serving! I'm glad you liked it.
