Ingredients & Variations

CREAM CHEESE: Cream cheese blends everything together. For best results, let it come to room temperature for faster blending. For an instant Nutella dip, substitute marshmallow fluff for the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Cool Whip.

SUGAR: Powdered sugar dissolves faster than granulated, making the dip smooth and creamy. For a sugar-free version, use powdered Swerve.

NUTELLA: Just scoop and add to the mix!

COOL WHIP: There is no substitute for non-dairy dessert toppings like Cool Whip in this recipe, just make sure it is fully thawed before using. Whipped cream is harder to maintain a fluffy texture when mixed, so it’s not the preferred choice.

How to Make Fruit Dip

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Beat cream cheese until it is smooth and creamy.
  2. Gently fold in the remainder of the ingredients and mix well.
  3. Serve immediately or chill before serving.

Serving Suggestions

Serve Nutella cream cheese fruit dip over pancakes, waffles, or use it as dip for fruit kabobs, these tasty vanilla shortbread cookies, peanut butter cookies, or add to this fun, homemade fruit salsa with honey lime crisps. Nilla wafers, cinnamon sugar tortilla chips, and Nutter Butter cookies are ready-made cookies that are perfect dippers for Nutella fruit dip!

Best Tips for Dips!

Avoid over-mixing the dip as it will flatten and become too thick. Keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator because it’s best served cold. Keep covered in the refrigerator and use within 7 days. Whisk before serving again to incorporate more air into it.

    I had just enough Nutella left from my cooking to make the dip. My grandsons were over to give it a quality test and it passed with flying colors. It was so good they scraped the bottom of the dish clean. I’ll be making this again for Christmas.

    I am a lover of all things Nutella and this was a great flavour experience! The way this stuff pairs with fresh strawberries is something else. Just Nutella alone is too dense, but this combination of flavour and the texture is perfect!
