Nutella Mousse Squares


When things get hectic (or should I say stressful), it's only natural to seek the comfort of your one and only, your one true love. The one that, through thick and thin, has been by your side. The one that can always pick you up when you're feeling down...


Found on the Nutella Day website, this Nutella mousse recipe is quick, easy, and sure to impress!

In a ramekan, sprinkled with a few chopped hazelnuts, is by far my favorite serving suggestion. Or, spread it in a pie crust topped with some whipped cream and you've got a delicious Nutella cream pie. Or, chill it in a pan and cut it in to easy to share mousse squares (fork recommended, but not required). Or...

(SIGH)

OK. Let's be honest. You'll probably just eat it right out of the mixing bowl...'cause it's THAT good!!

Nutella Mousse Squares
Mousse:
1 cup Nutella
2 cups heavy whipping cream
Crust:
1 1/2 cups Oreo cookies, finely crushed
3 tbsp melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In food processor, crush cookies...or you can use a ziplock and a rolling pin like I did. Works just as well!


Stir cookie crumbs with melted butter until moist.


Press cookie mixture into bottom of 8" square pan and bake for 10 minutes. Completely cool crust before filling.


In chilled mixing bowl, combine heavy cream and nutella.


Whip on high until not so soft, but not so stiff peaks form.

  1. ohh, so simple, but looks soooo good! I'm not sure how much of the mousse would actually make it to the pan before I ate it!

  4. Nutella, whipping cream, oreos. Perhaps the perfect dessert?

  6. I love the idea of placing the oreo cookies inside a ziplock bag to crush them. I'm just not sure how if that mousse can still make it to the pan after I make them (hint: a full-fledged nutella lover here)
