Nutella Stuffed Strawberries Recipe

Is it just us, or does Nutella make absolutely everything exponentially better? Nutella is a sweet, smooth, and hazelnutty treat, and to know it is to love it. It's taken the world by storm and it makes a wonderful addition to a wide-variety of recipes. If you're looking for a fun treat that combines fruit with the perfect amount of chocolate and Nutella, then these Nutella stuffed strawberries are gold. The concept is similar to chocolate-covered strawberries, but in addition to adding chocolate to the outside, you also hollow out the center of the strawberry to add a Nutella filling. It's one of the best treats you will ever taste.

Recipe developer Jaime Shelbert of Wholly Nourished came up with this delicious recipe, and it's a must-try. "This recipe is always a hit with everyone, and it's so easy to make. It takes chocolate-covered strawberries up a notch," she shares.

Without further ado, keep scrolling to find the instructions on making this tasty dessert.

Gather the ingredients for Nutella stuffed strawberries

The first thing you'll need to do is make a list of ingredients and head to the grocery store. Just don't forget to check your fridge and pantry before you head to the store to make sure you don't buy items you already have. 

The foundation of the recipe is 10 medium-large strawberries and ½ cup of Nutella. To add even more sweetness, be sure to get dark chocolate chips or wafers. You'll also need coconut oil and chopped hazelnuts. 

Prep the strawberries

Once you have everything in front of you, it's time to begin! The first thing you need to do is grab your strawberries and a paring knife. If the strawberries didn't come pre-washed, make sure to give them a good rinse and dry them well. 

Then, grab a cutting board and slice the green tops off of each strawberry. Keep the knife handy because you still need it to make a hole in each berry. "Hollow out the center with a good paring knife," Shelbert says. Or, if you happen to have a strawberry corer, you could use it instead. 

Add the Nutella

This step is one of the most fun parts of the process. Take out the Nutella and spoon it into a piping bag. If you don't happen to have one, that's fine. "No sweat if you don't have a piping bag," Shelbert notes. "A Ziploc will do. Spoon the Nutella into the bag, snip a small corner of the bag, and you're ready to pipe." Sounds easy enough, right? 

Once you have added the Nutella to the bag, squeeze it into the hollowed-out strawberries. Repeat the process with each one until they're all filled. 

Melt the chocolate

Are you ready to add some chocolate to the mix? Grab a small, microwave-safe bowl and add the chocolate and coconut oil. Pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds, then remove it and stir. Continue microwaving the chocolate and coconut oil mixture in 30-second increments until the chocolate is smooth and glossy. The coconut oil helps to thin out the chocolate a little to give it the perfect consistency. 

Melting the chocolate should only take about 60-90 seconds total.

Dip and coat the strawberries

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to create a good spot for resting and chilling your soon-to-be chocolate-covered strawberries. Spread the chopped hazelnuts on a plate. Hold the strawberries at the top and dip the bottom half of the fruit into the melted chocolate.

Next, roll the chocolate-dipped portion through the chopped hazelnuts to coat each strawberry with the nuts. Place the treat on the parchment paper. Repeat the dipping and rolling with the remaining strawberries.

Cool and enjoy

Pop the baking sheet into the fridge for about 10 minutes to let the chocolate harden. Once you remove the strawberries from the fridge, you can serve and enjoy them! "These make a lovely dessert for a party," Shelbert notes. "Or a sweet treat for Valentine's Day. Top with a dollop of whipped cream to make them a little extra."

But, be sure you don't make these too far ahead of time. "These are best enjoyed the same day or next. Since the strawberries are sliced in the center, they start to lose their juices and can become soggy," Shelbert shares.

We hope these chocolatey treats hit the spot!
