5 Best Nutella Tiramisu Recipes

What is tiramisu?

Most everyone has heard about tiramisu at least once. In case you haven’t, tiramisu is traditionally a coffee-flavored Italian dessert made with layers of ladyfinger cookies or sponge cake and whipped cream.

Who wouldn’t love that? The other question you may be thinking is, how do I pronounce the word tiramisu? Phonetically, it is pronounced ‘tee-rah-mee-sooh,’ which means “pick-me-up” in Italian. 

Combine this decadent treat with Nutella and you’ll be in dessert heaven! Find out how to make your own Nutella Tiramisu from our top favorite recipes below.

1. Nutella Tiramisu in a Cup Recipe

This recipe is pretty easy to make, but it does require patience because it takes about two hours to chill. We promise the wait will be worth it! Brew a batch of instant coffee then mix in Nutella.

Next, stir mascarpone cheese until creamy, then add Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar and thoroughly combine it. These are your two components of the dessert. 

The first layer is the mascarpone mixture, then layer the coffee-Nutella mix, and continue each layer in the parfait cup until it’s full. Garnish with cocoa powder or whipped cream and enjoy. 

If you’d like, you can use light brown sugar or maple syrup in place of powdered sugar for added sweetness. An optional extra to consider is chopped nuts, to add textural variety to the dessert.

2. Nutella Tiramisu Recipe

This recipe follows a more traditional way of making tiramisu by soaking ladyfinger cookies in coffee. With this version of Nutella Tiramisu, you’ll first make your mascarpone cream, folding in some optional coffee liqueur.

Next, mix Nutella with some milk and combine warm coffee with powdered sugar. Dip the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture and place them in your baking dish to create the first layer.

Spread the Nutella mixture on top, followed by the mascarpone. Repeat these layers until the dish is full and then cover and chill. 

A few tips you should keep in mind is to quickly dip the cookies in the coffee to prevent them from getting too soggy. If possible, use Dutch-processed cocoa, and garnish it with either mint leaves, a dollop of Nutella, or chocolate shavings.

A song or two may have started playing in your head after reading the title of this next recipe, but you’ll be singing “hallelujah” by the time you’re done making this dessert. This version of Nutella Tiramisu is lighter and only takes 30 minutes to make!

The ingredients are the same as the first two recipes, but you’ll be putting them together differently. Mix the Nutella, powdered sugar, vanilla, heavy cream, and mascarpone into a bowl, and whisk until thick.

Lightly soak the ladyfingers in warm espresso. Fill up your dish with contrasting layers of the cookies and Nutella mixture. A handheld mixer is a great tool to use if you hate whisking by hand, especially for those with hand or wrist issues.

4. Nutella Tiramisu Layered Cake

This recipe is a little different because instead of using ladyfingers, you’re going to make your own cakes from scratch. You will incorporate Nutella throughout this amazing dessert because it is in the cake batter and the mascarpone filling. 

Once you’ve made the cakes, brush cake pieces with espresso plus hazelnut and coffee liqueurs. Pipe equal amounts of Nutella and mascarpone cream, and then repeat the layers.

Making the cakes will be the most unique and time-consuming part of this Nutella Tiramisu recipe, but it is well worth the effort.

For anyone with gluten allergies, it’s so nice when you can enjoy some of the same dishes that everyone else loves to eat. There are some ingredient substitutes in this Nutellamisu, but there’s no substituting the joy of making this!

Begin by making a cake, this one will be a gluten-free chocolate sponge cake, which is very versatile. Boozy coffee, whipped mascarpone, and Nutella will be the other components of this dessert.

The cake soaks up the coffee, Nutella is combined with the mascarpone, and the whole thing is topped off with hazelnuts and chopped chocolate. We certainly wouldn’t turn down this gluten-free dessert.
