How to Make Homemade Nutella Liqueur (Video)

How to Make Homemade Nutella Liqueur ~ ever since my recent DRINKABLE NUTELLA recipe I’ve been obsessed with the idea of making the famous chocolate hazelnut spread into a decadent beverage. This easy diy chocolate liqueur is my latest (spiked!) version ~ it’s to die for.

I rarely get this excited about writing up a post, but this easy recipe for homemade chocolate liqueur is so incredibly delicious I just couldn’t wait to press ‘publish’!

Everyone who tasted it agreed it’s a winner. I think that’s because the proportions are perfect, it’s not too sweet, not too thick, with just the right alcoholic content so that it doesn’t overpower. And most importantly of all, that fabulous Nutella flavor comes shining through. We all agreed this has lots of possibilities for delicious applications well beyond ‘straight up’ or ‘on the rocks’. We think it would be amazing with ice cream, or blended up with ice cream into an adult cocktail milkshake. Or in an after dinner coffee.

Homemade liqueur is very easy to do, and I think it makes the perfect ‘from my kitchen‘ holiday gift. I guarantee no one will re-gift a bottle of this Nutella liqueur, and you will no doubt get repeat requests for it year after year.

Nutella is one of those foods that is impossible to resist. If I have a jar in the house I will finish it off, spoonful by delicious spoonful, that’s all there is to it. So I keep a growing collection of favorite recipes that I can turn to before I can polish it off  😉   Search ‘Nutella’ on my blog and you’ll come up with some goodies like my NUTELLA S’MORES BARS, and my BANANA CAKE WITH NUTELLA BUTTERCREAM…yum!

This recipe couldn’t be simpler, which makes it a great one for everyone to try. Check out the video below to see what I mean. There are no special skills or equipment involved, and I think it’s the ultimate holiday gift. You’ll just need some cream, some inexpensive vodka, and of course a jar of Nutella.

Adding Vodka to a homemade Nutella Liqueur

The only other thing you’ll need is a bottle to put your homemade Nutella liqueur into. You can recycle a pretty one you already have, or purchase one. Just make sure it has a tight fitting top. Flip top bottles like the ones I used are ideal, and you can get them on Amazon, here. They make a pretty presentation and you can use them again and again.

My HOMEMADE IRISH CREAM and my HOMEMADE PUMPKIN SPICE LIQUEUR are similar recipes, but this Nutella liqueur is somewhat lighter in consistency. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a special friend, make them a sampler of all three 🙂

How to Make Homemade Nutella Liqueur

Course and infused liqueur, cocktail
Calories 173kcal
Author Sue Moran


  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup vodka no need to get anything expensive


  • Warm the cream on the stove or in the microwave, just until it comes to a simmer.
  • Add the Nutella and let it sit for a minute, then whisk gently to combine. Keep mixing until the two are completely blended. Those little specks of Nutella will eventually melt into the cream and the mixture should look silky smooth. You can warm the mixture a little bit if you have trouble getting the Nutella to completely incorporate, but you shouldn't need to.
  • Stir in the vodka and mix completely. Then pour into a clean bottle.
  • Refrigerate. The liqueur will keep for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.

    This sounds soooo delicious, I’m obsessed with Nutella.

    I’d love to make this straight away and I happen to have Nutella and cream on hand, but no vodka. Are there other spirits I could potentially use? Maybe Tequila (that’s all I have)?

    Thank you!

      I use vodka because it has no flavor to interfere with the Nutella. If I were you I’d wait and get some vodka, but if you want to try the tequila I would make a mini batch and taste it first.

    Hi do you think if I made and kept in freezer it would keep a bit longer than 2 to 3 weeks?

    How many ounces does this make? I see that there are 8 servings in a bottle, but I would love to know how much is in a serving. I am thinking about making this for a belated-holiday-gift-exchange-and-drinks with a friend soon, but as she’s on a ketogenic diet and every carb counts for her, I wanna make sure she’s getting a decent amount out of a couple of servings if she’s using half of her carbs for the day on it. Ha! Might just add it to coffee, as someone mentioned in a previous comment. 🙂

      Hi Sierra ~ I set the serving size at 1/4 cup, and the whole recipe makes approximately 16 ounces. Serving it straight up would be the full 1/4 cup, but using it in coffee would be a nice idea if someone was really counting carbs ~ hope this helps!
