Ingredients

Just a few simple ingredients will get you on your way to making a dreamy dip.

  • Nutella – The classic spread is the star of the show and it shines in this chocolatey, velvety dish.
  • Cream cheese – Cream cheese adds creaminess to the dip and gives it a tangy cheesecake taste. Be sure to soften before mixing with the other ingredients.
  • Heavy cream – The fat in the cream helps to make this a silky dip.
  • Powdered sugar – Powdered sugar sweetens the dip and also helps to make it luxuriously smooth.
  • Cool Whip – Whipped topping adds light airiness to the dip. 
  • Mini chocolate chips (plus more for garnish, if desired) – These add texture and even more chocolate flavor.

How to Make Creamy Nutella Dip

This easy dip comes together in a matter of minutes.

  3. Fold in Cool Whip. Once those two ingredients are completely combined into the Nutella mixture, use a rubber spatula to gently fold the Cool Whip and mini chocolate chips in.
  4. Add to bowl and garnish. Spoon the dip into a bowl for serving and add an optional garnish of more mini chocolate chips.
  5. Enjoy! Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator.

You can serve this creamy dip with your favorite dippers like strawberries, graham crackers, angel food cake pieces, and cookies like vanilla wafers, peanut butter oatmeal cookies, or trail mix cookies.  Or make it a sweet and salty combination with pretzels.
