Nutella Frosting

Nutella Frosting is an easy and decadent frosting that will take your cupcakes or cake to the next level!

Nutella is one of those foods that you either love or hate. While I don’t love Nutella in everything and certainly wouldn’t want to eat it by the spoonful, I love the depth of flavor it gives when you add it to a treat. Enter Nutella Frosting

Take a plain ol’ cupcake and top it with Nutella Frosting? Now it’s pretty amazing 🙂

When I found the new Pillsbury Funfetti cake mixes at my local Target for $2.50 a box I knew I had to buy a few. Pillsbury makes a pretty good gluten free cake mix, but adding Nutella frosting and a few sprinkles really takes these to the next level!

The new Pillsbury Funfetti Cupcake Mix did not disappoint, and WOW. This Nutella frosting is truly knock-your-socks-off good. It has the classic creamy texture of Nutella except in a pipe-able frosting form.

Simple yet decadent, it’s the perfect way to fancy up whatever treat you might be making! We’ve been known to pull this out as a dip for strawberries or a filling for gluten free graham cracker sandwiches (Schar are our fav). Let us know what you top with this Nutella Frosting!

If only they made Nutella with a dairy free option! This looks SO delicious! I had a similar excited moment when I found the Gluten Free Funfetti mix for my daughters birthday. She was thrilled too! Thanks for linking up with us at the Best of the Blogosphere! We'd love to have you back tomorrow for a new week. :)

I'll stop by! We often use Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Spread for a sub (check out my Nutella Stuffed Rice Krispie Treats!) but haven't tried that with the frosting yet-but I bet it could work if you added a little extra almond milk. Let me know if you try it!

I'm a probably-need-to-be-checked-into-nutella-rehab Nutella addict, too! Can't get enough of the stuff so I CANNOT WAIT to make this. Plus I have just shy of 2 dozen gluten-free funfetti mixes just begging to be topped with this frosting. So glad to hear the mix is good. WOOT!
