Nutella Frosting

It’s no secret that I love the combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. But add avocado and slap it on a cake…oh boy, that’s heaven.


Prep Time
Cooking Time
Total Time
Yield Enough frosting for a 2 layer cake or 16 cupcakes

1 cup of dry-roasted hazelnuts

4 soft, ripe avocados

1/3 cup of maple syrup or honey

2/3 cup  of cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

A pinch of salt


In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the dry-roasted hazelnuts until the texture of nut butter, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add in the avocados, maple syrup or honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Process to completely combine, about 2 minutes, scraping the bowl down with a spatula halfway through.

Frost on cake, cupcakes, or eat with a spoon!
