Rich and creamy Nutella pudding cups. Make these ahead for a decadent chocolate dessert!



For the Pudding

  • 1 (13-ounce) container of Nutella
  • 2 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 egg yolks

Optional Topping

  • Whipped Cream
  • Grated dark chocolate


  1. Transfer the Nutella from the container to a large mixing bowl using a spatula. Use a spatula so you can scrape as much as you can from the sides and bottom of the jar. It will be sticky so scrape the spatula on the edge of the bowl to remove the Nutella.
  2. Add the milk in small batches to the Nutella and whisk between each. This will make it easier to dissolve the Nutella. Start with 1/2 cup of milk and then keep adding it in batches until the Nutella is dissolved. Don’t worry too much if you have a few wayward lumps.
  3. In a large saucepan, whisk the cornstarch until it’s light and powdery. Slowly add the Nutella and milk mixture. Start with a 1/2 cup and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the rest of the Nutella and milk, whisking continuously so you don’t have any lumps of cornstarch. Add the egg yolks and whisk until combined.
  4. Turn the burner to medium heat. Bring the pot to a simmer, stirring frequently. Once the pudding is thickened and the bubbles can barely break the surface remove the pot from the heat. It should take less than 10 minutes for the pudding to thicken.
  5. Take the saucepan off of the heat. Divide the pudding into containers (approximately 1/3 cup for each serving). Cover with plastic wrap so the wrap is touching the pudding surface and keep them in the refrigerator. Chill the pudding for at least an hour or up to 4 days.
  6. Add the topping (if using) before serving.
