  • 1 package (8 ounces; 226g) full fat cream cheese, softened (Note 1)
  • 1/4 cup (225g) powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup (211g) Nutella
  • 1 cup (235g) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/16 teaspoon fine sea salt (just a tiny pinch of salt)
  • Fruit, graham crackers, marshmallows, etc. for dipping.
  • Toothpicks for serving


  • CREAM CHEESE: In a large mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. Beat, with a hand mixer, until smooth and creamy. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides as needed. Once smooth, add in the Nutella and beat until combined.
  • WHIPPED CREAM: In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or a separate bowl with hand mixers), whip the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt until it forms stiff peaks.
  • FOLD: Gently fold the whipped cream into the Nutella mixture using a spatula. Fold until all ingredients are completely incorporated.
  • SERVE: Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and arrange fruit (or dippers of choice) around the dip. Skewer small berries on toothpicks. Serve toothpicks alongside the dip. Enjoy!
  • STORAGE: This dip will last up to four days, covered tightly in the fridge. If it starts to separate, just give it a quick stir to incorporate all the ingredients again.



Note 1: To soften cream cheese, remove the cardboard box and inner foil wrapper. Place in a microwave safe bowl or on a plate and microwave for 15 seconds. Flip the block of cream cheese over and microwave for another 10-15 seconds or until softened. (Time will vary depending on your microwave; just remember you want it softened not melted.)
