The 5th of February is World Nutella Day and this Organised Housewife celebrated with all things Nutella. Below are some of my best Nutella recipes to date, starting with these Nutella Macarons, which are perfect to make and celebrate such a delicious fact with. They have a pure Nutella filling that will impress any chocolate connoisseur!!!
My eldest miss made these last week, and I have to tell you that they are just amazing. They are so yummy and I’m incredibly proud of her macaron making skills because let’s face it, macarons are not the easiest cookie to make. You have to get the consistency of the recipe perfect or they won’t bake right. Not only did she get it right, she made them better than I do!
The centre is pure Nutella, and together with the macaron biscuit, it’s such an incredible chocolate explosion when you bite into one. Yummo!!!
The recipe makes up so many macarons, that you won’t be able to help yourself and will be eating at least a couple of these a day. Nom Nom, let’s just say that there is nothing better than my afternoon coffee and one of these macarons.
- 6 egg whites
- 260g icing sugar, sifted
- 200g almond meal
- 30g cocoa, sifted
- 200g caster sugar
- 250g Nutella
- Preheat oven to 140°C.
- Draw macaron sized circles evenly spaced onto 3 sheets of baking paper.
- Place icing sugar, almond meal and cocoa powder in a bowl.
- In an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they are frothy.
- Add half the sugar and continue to beat.
- When stiff peaks start to form, add the rest of the sugar and continue to beat the mixture until a thick meringue forms.
- Using a spatula gently fold through the dry ingredients. Continue to fold for 2 minutes working the mixture from the edge to the centre.
- Spoon the mixture into a piping bag.
- Pipe onto the baking paper the same diameter of the circles.
- Set aside for 20 – 30 minutes in a dry place until a soft crust forms on the surface.
- Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
- Leave the macarons to cool on tray for 5 -10 minutes then place on a wire rack to cool completely and so you can reuse tray if needed.
- When cooled pair up macaroons with a similar sizing half.
- Place Nutella in a piping bag and pipe on half of the macarons then sandwich the other half together.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Best served at room temperature

Chocolate Nutella Cake
My chocolate Nutella Cake was a cake that I made for Easter one year, but it would also work perfectly with maltesers on top instead. I can tell you that this cake is totally yummo and doesn’t disappoint.
