Double Nutella Kulfi with Toasted Hazelnuts

Like all Italian kids, I have grown up on bread and Nutella… so that surely represents me! And my husband back in India has enjoyed his good share of kulfi while growing up. So… why not combine the two to come up with something that combines both Indian and Italian culinary cultures?

Notes

*Note: You should be able to find these molds at any Indian food store, but if you don't, you can use any other mold. Even the individual plastic tubs for yogurt work fine. In this case, make sure to cover each tub with some plastic wrap. The plastic wrap should be put directly in contact with the kulfi mix so that no air can enter; this will prevent crystallization.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4  Cup  heavy cream
  • 1/2  Cup  sugar
  • 1  Cup  plus 2 1/2 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1/2  Cup  plus 2 3/4 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1  Tablespoon  milk
  • 2  Tablespoons  hazelnuts, toasted and crushed

Directions

Whip the cream with the sugar using an electric mixer. Then, add the evaporated milk and 6 3/4 tablespoons of the Nutella and whisk together until well combined. Pour the mixture in the kulfi molds, close them, and put them in the freezer overnight.*

When ready to serve, prepare the Nutella sauce by melting the remaining Nutella in the milk in a small saucepan. If you want a thinner sauce, just add a little extra hot milk (add gradually until the desired consistency is reached).

Unmold the kulfi and serve it with a good drizzle of warm Nutella sauce. Decorate with the toasted crushed hazelnuts.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.

Nutella Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
