Nutella Hot Fudge: 2 Ingredients, 33 Seconds

Here at Babble, one of our most viewed posts of all times is Sophistimom’s Hot Chocolate in 99 Seconds, which is a really simple and brilliant rendition of a microwaved ganache.  Her snappy approach to hot fudge inspired me today when I had a neighbor over for lunch.  We’d just eaten some spicy Indian food, so a cool creamy snack was in order.  But, I had less than a minute to pull something clever together.  So, I grabbed a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a scoop of Nutella, zapped them together in the microwave, and holy hazelnuts! what resulted was nothing short of Nutella perfection.

This recipe is not unlike a ganache.  The cream from the ice cream melts with the cocoa-goodness of Nutella to create a shiny, soft, and pourable hot fudge sauce.  It’s perfect for ice cream.  Better yet, it can be made in under a minute with ingredients you probably already have on hand.  Score.

Nutella Hot Fudge Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 large scoop vanilla ice cream

Place ingredients in a small, microwave-safe container.  Nuke for 30 seconds.  Stir together until creamy.  Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, if needed.  Pour over ice cream & enjoy!
