1 lb (4 sticks) unsalted butter (room temp.)

  • 13 oz of Nutella

  • 2¾ cup powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


1.      Place the butter and Nutella in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.

2.      Beat on medium-high for 3 minutes.

3.      Add the powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time.

4.      Add the vanilla once all the powdered sugar has been incorporated.

5.      Beat on medium for another 3 minutes until light and fluffy.

6.      Reduce speed to low for 1 minute. This helps to smooth the icing and release any air bubbles.

I add Nutella to taste. And to whatever buttercream I use. America buttercream is very sweet for my taste so ideally I would add it to meringue or cooked buttercream. 

Start with maybe 1/4 cup Nutella and taste. You can always add more...
