As you may know, February 5 was World Nutella Day. I submitted my entry, a fried Nutella and banana sandwich with cinnamon sugar crust, but a comment on that entry inspired me to make a Nutella fruit dip. It's basically a variation of this peanut butter dip, which I have made before and absolutely loved. I replaced the peanut butter with Nutella, omitted the brown sugar and added a pinch of salt instead.
It tastes amazing! We used apples to dip into it, but it would taste great with bananas and strawberries as well.
- 3 tablespoons Nutella
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese softened
- pinch of salt
- ¼ cup milk
- Thoroughly mix Nutella, cream cheese and salt until no streaks of cream cheese remain. Mixture may be a little grainy-looking. Slowly add milk a bit at a time and stir until milk is thoroughly mixed in (you'll need to mix for a while for it to come together). You should end up with a nice smooth, creamy dip for your fruit. Store in refrigerator. To soften up the dip after removing from the refrigerator, just stick it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds.
This is my bonus World Nutella Day recipe for all you Nutella-lovers!
