Chocolate-Hazelnut Filling and Whipped-Cream Frosting

Photography: Anna Williams




  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (from a 1/4-ounce envelope)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  1. Step 1

    Place 2 tablespoons cold water in a small saucepan; sprinkle with gelatin, and set aside to soften, about 5 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk chocolate-hazelnut spread with 1/4 cup cream; set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Heat gelatin mixture very gently over low, stirring just until dissolved; set aside.

  4. Step 4

    In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat remaining 2 cups cream with sugar until soft peaks form. While still beating, pour dissolved gelatin mixture over cream all at once (gently reheat gelatin mixture if it has stiffened).

  5. Step 5

    Fold half of whipped cream into chocolate-hazelnut spread mixture to finish the Chocolate-Hazelnut Filling; the remaining whipped cream is the Whipped-Cream Frosting.
