Nutella frosting is a splurge-worthy indulgent buttercream frosting. This decadent chocolate hazelnut frosting is perfect for topping cakes, cupcakes, or even cookies! Makes about 3 cups of frosting.
- 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
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!
