We've sampled many different flavors of gelato over the years while visiting our family in Italy, but somehow, our kids always go back to their favorite flavor "Nutella®"! While this is not exactly the same as the ones that you will find in Italy, it's pretty darn good for a homemade version!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine milk, cream, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of chocolate-hazelnut spread and vanilla and whisk until incorporated, and you no longer see any specks of chocolate. Do not let mixture come to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Refrigerate mixture until cold, about 3 hours.

  • Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • Meanwhile, place the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate-hazelnut spread in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high until slightly melted, about 30 seconds.

  • Transfer gelato from the ice cream maker into a freezer-safe storage container. Drizzle with melted spread. Run a knife through to swirl the chocolate-hazelnut spread throughout the gelato. Freeze until set, 4 hours to overnight.
