What’s better than chocolate and strawberries? How about Nutella and strawberries.
I’ve always thought that strawberries and Nutella make a great combination. So the other day I thought, why not just stuff some Nutella into strawberries? Strawberries have been on sale lately. Must be a sign.
While it’s easy to stuff the berries with Nutella, it was harder to pipe them and make them look pretty because of the Nutella’s texture. If I were to do it again for guests, I might do a Nutella whipped cream instead.
But as far as taste goes..these were delicious. Better than chocolate covered strawberries. FH is only allowed a few strawberries a day because he gets an allergic reaction if he eats too many. Usually he can control himself, but he kept sneaking these when I wasn’t looking.
Nutella stuffed Strawberries
3/4 cup Nutella for stuffing
1. Place Nutella into piping bag and refrigerate about 30 mins so it becomes firmer for piping.
2. Slice off a tiny bit of top end of strawberry (where attached to green) so that the strawberry can stand on a flat surface. Then make a deep knife cut on tip of strawberry. You want to make two cuts for each strawberry in the shape of an “X” or a cross. You want to cut about 3/4 of the way down, but not all the way. Use your finger to help separate the petal of the strawberries so that they open up enough for stuffing.
3. Remove Nutella from fridge and pipe into each of the strawberries. (As I stated in my post, it is hard to pipe it pretty. If you want a prettier presentation, I think it's better to do a Nutella whipped cream mixture.)
