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 offย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

    I love the idea of this so much!! Do you think full fat coconut milk would work?

      I do, and I bet it would be delicious! The only thing to keep in mind is that the coconut flavor will compete a little bit with the Nutella.

      It’s even better than you can imagine, Traci, and I’m with you on the coffee, I take mine black, but I make an exception for this!
