HAZELNUT MOUSSE
Serves 4

You’ll Need
– 1 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
– 4 ounces (½ cup) Nutella (or your favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread)

How To

  1. Chill a medium mixing bowl and the beaters to a hand mixer for at least 20 minutes in the freezer.
  2. Slightly heat the Nutella for about 15 to 20 seconds in the microwave, until it becomes a pourable consistency. If it becomes too hot, let it cool to room temperature.
  3. Remove the bowl and beaters from the freezer. Beat the whipping cream with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  4. Gently fold the Nutella into the whipped cream until there are no visible streaks. Fold gently so you don’t deflate all the lovely air you just whipped into the cream!
  5. Chill for 2 hours before serving.

Note

    Why chill the mixing bowl and beaters? Because whipped cream whips much faster if the cream, bowl and beaters are all very cold!
