Preparation

How to prepare Nutella liqueur

To make the Nutella liqueur, start by pouring the milk and cream 1 into a large pot, and then add the Nutella 2. Mix vigorously with a whisk to combine all the ingredients and stop lumps from forming 3. Then begin to heat gently. Once the mixture is warm, but before it’s reached a boil, and the Nutella is fully melted, turn off the heat and remove the pot from the stove. Leave the mixture to cool completely. Keep whisking it every now and then to prevent a film from forming on top.

Once the mixture has cooled completely, add the alcohol 4 and blend it well into the other ingredients. Finally, pour into clean bottles that you’ll keep it in 5 and allow to cool completely for at least 10 minutes. We used a glass container with an airtight closure 6. Let the Nutella liqueur rest for at least 20-30 days before drinking it!

Storage

The Nutella liqueur can be kept in the pantry or fridge for around 90 days.

Tips

The trick for making this liqueur even tastier? Let it rest for at least 20-30 days before savoring it so the warm, enveloping notes of the cream, milk, and Nutella blend together in velvety harmony! Want to make it extra sweet? Add a pinch of granulated sugar! And for a more intense and aromatic flavor, you can also add a few drops of Grand Marnier.
