 This 3 ingredient dessert will win you over immediately. Nutella Mousse is a quick, easy, and delicious dessert!

Three Nutella Mousse in glasses topped with whipped cream.

This perfectly light and airy mousse is so easy to make and satisfies those strong Nutella cravings. I’m not the only one to get those, am I? I am a huge fan of Nutella so this dessert really hits the spot.

I love that this dessert comes together in just a few minutes. It all depends on how long it takes you to whip your cream. That’s it! You can eat it right away, but I like it best when it’s been chilled. It stays good in the fridge for several days, but is best when eaten fresh.

You can serve this in small bowls or shot glasses, but be forewarned that you are going to want to lick the dish clean and that is really hard to do with a shot glass.

Nutella mousse topped with whipped cream in a glass with a spoon in it.

I add sugar to the cream in this recipe because I like to serve it with a dollop of plain cream on top. Rather than make two separate batches of whipped cream, I simply add the sugar to the whole thing. If you are only going to make the Nutella Mousse (without the dollop of cream) then feel free to skip adding the sugar.

If you love Nutella, you may also be interested in my recipe for Peanut Butter Nutella No Bake Cookies.  They are absolutely delicious and so easy to make!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • Pour heavy whipping cream into the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl. Pour in sugar. Use a hand mixer, or the whisk attachment on a stand mixer, to whip cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Scoop the nutella into the bowl. Fold it together using a rubber spatula until all of the whipped cream is brown and loses its streaks.
  • Scoop into serving dishes, or use a piping bag if you are being fancy.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Great dessert!
Shared thought: if you think you’ll have leftover mousse for days, perhaps divide recipe in half…
1/6 cup = 2-1/2 tablespoons
according to Google. ?
Good luck & enjoy!

Tastes awesome! Do you think this could be used as filling for macarons or would I have to thicken it up somehow?

Do you think I could replace the sugar with maybe a couple of teaspoons of honey?

It is really very difficult to view your video. The advertisements that are always running in the background are continuously moving the screen – – making it difficult to watch you make this dessert. As I am typing this comment, I have been “moved” up the screen to the advertisement 5 times…having to scroll back down. As I try to scroll back down to your video…it keeps kicking me back up. Extremely frustrating. I know you need your sponsors to have this ‘blog’, but I wanted to make you aware of the frustration your viewers feel.

This is amazing! I needed a dessert that was gluten-free for a friend. She loved this. Only problem is that I can’t keep out of it!

This is so delicioud! Amf it made way more than 4 C. for me. I served a family of 8 with this! I did add an extra 1/2c. of nutella because i wanted a stronger nutella taste and because it was very pale in color. It was so rich and wonderful! My daughter wanted something different for her birthday and she picked this. It was fantastic!

I’m in the UK
I’m guessing heavy cream is just whipping cream, but I’m stuck with the sugar.
Is it just normal granulated sugar or icing sugar you use? Guessing normal sugar will be bitty as it won’t dissolve

Does this need the sugar for anything other than added sweetness? I feel like Nutella is sweet enough.

if i make it in afternoon to serve in say after 8 hrs, it will be fluffy right? heavy cream used here is “non dairy whip cream, right)
if I want to make 1 batch of coffee mousse and 1 just milky chocolate mousse, will the process and ratio be same?
Thanks in advance
