I am NUTTY for NUTELLA! Seriously people, Nutella makes me nutty & I’m not ashamed to admit it. LOL!
I have been eating Nutella for over 20 years and never ever get tired of it and don’t imagine I ever will. Last month I posted my Strawberry Nutella Panino and was overwhelmed with the amount of love it received! So many of you commented, emailed & twitted with me about your love for Nutella! Hard to believe a little jar like that could contain such incredible, finger licking goodness (oh yes, you know you dip your finger in the jar too! LOL) isn’t it. All that love got me thinking.
So, I came up with an idea for a monthly Nutella posting to feed my Nutella habit & hopefully yours and The Nutella Challenge was born!
I’m simply thrilled that there are so many Nutella-ites out there that share my love for this chocolaty, hazelnut goodness! So without further adieu I give you (drumroll please…) my NUTELLA GELATO…. I know, I know! This one is going to be hard for me to beat but I’m up for the challenge. LOL. After your breathing returns to normal I hope you’ll give this Nutella Gelato a try & let me know what you think. I’m already dreaming about next month’s Nutella posting!
We have so many talented foodies participating in The Nutella Challenge. Be sure to show them some love & check out all of their postings as well! We hope to overwhelm you (tee hee) with an unlimited amount of Nutella choices! As if it wasn’t enough, don’t forget we’re doing this once a month so you might want to go ahead & stock up on your Nutella! I KNOW you’re going to want to re-create each & every one of these Nutella originals!
What you’ll need:
6 egg yolks
1 capful of pure vanilla extra (yeah, yeah you know by now I like Madagascar Vanilla)
1 cup + 2 tbsps of granulated sugar
3 1/2 cups of whole milk
2 – 0.32 oz (9g) packets of vanilla sugar – I use Dr. Oetker Original Vanilla Sugar
1 13oz jar of NUTELLA!
What to do:
In a large saucepan over low – medium heat, add your milk & vanilla sugar. Stir. Add in your vanilla extract. Continue to stir until milk is warmed completely through. You don’t want to boil the milk mixture. In a mixer, combine the sugar & egg yolks & beat with the paddle attachment until mixture is creamy. Slowly temper the egg mixture with the milk mixture (SLOWLY, you don’t want to end up with scrambled eggs). Once you have combined the mixtures, return combined mixture to sauce pan and continue to stir over low heat until mixture thickens. This could take a few minutes. Slowly add in your Nutella, stirring through completely with each spoonful.
Once the mixture thoroughly coats the back of your wooden spoon, it is ready. Remove from heat and move pan into refrigerator to cool completely. This could take a few hours. Place mixture into your ice cream/gelato maker and follow the instructions per your machine.
