I debated—do I update the Salted Nutella Latte recipe that sparked this search for a Nutella Syrup and run the risk of you not seeing it, or do I give it the spotlight it deserves with a new post? The decision was an easy one—make sure no one misses this recipe. The original latte recipe, which I’ll leave intact, calls for heating milk and Nutella in the microwave until combined, then adding/making simple syrup. It’s a bit cumbersome (and unfit for an iced version) but when Nutella is involved, one will go to great lengths. I have good news and bad news friends: I’ve removed the great lengths part.
This syrup is fit for iced lattes, hot lattes, ice cream drizzles, and whatever else you can dream up. Summer can now proceed accordingly (with an iced latte in hand). Side note: because I feel guilty for making it so easy to indulge on Nutella, I have a vegetable recipe coming later this week. Balance, balance, balance. I walk the line.
The winter had me hooked on Salted Nutella Lattes. With the arrival of the summer heat, I had to find a way to easily make it iced. Thus, Nutella syrup was born. It’s a glorified simple syrup that dangerously comes together in less than 5 minutes.
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. sugar
heaping 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
3 tbsp. Nutella
In a small saucepan, heat water, sugar, and salt over medium heat until dissolved, stirring occasionally.
Whisk in Nutella and continue to cook until evenly combined.
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
I’ve been a fan of Nutella in coffee ever since I tried it at this little French Bahn Mi shop in Minneapolis. I’d just been throwing a tablespoon of Nutella in when the the craving struck – but this is quite a bit more cost effective (esp. since I have a 9-yr old who usually has some with his breakfast most days) and just as delicious!
Oh my days. Want on ice cream right now!
This looks incredible. I can’t wait to try it on crepes!
OMG! I need this in my life ASAP. Amazing!!

Good gracious. That’s gorgeous.. I went to make your Salted Nutella Latte the other day and couldn’t find the Nutella. Hmmm.. I wondered why, then stumbled on cookie butter and made it with that instead.. Wow. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is absolutely brilliant, but I’m a little scared that I found this because I will never be able to say no to nutella ANYTHING. xox
