Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 -1/2 tsp salt I like a very slight salty taste, so I use 1/2 tsp
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp whole milk can also use heavy cream
  • 1 tsp good quality vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and Nutella until well blended.  
  • Add sea salt, cocoa, milk or cream and vanilla and blend until mixed.  
  • Add the powdered sugar, a little at a time, until all is blended, smooth and creamy.  
  • Pipe or spread onto desired dessert, or eat it straight from the spoon!
