How easy is this? Three ingredients, that’s it AND it CAN be made lower fat/calories.
Can you believe I NEVER tasted Nutella until I made these?
I had a jar in the cupboard that I’d bought a few months ago in Aldi–yes!!! Not the brand name!!! Since I love Aldi’s products and always say they are BETTER than national brands, if they have it, I buy it.
OK now that I went off on that tangent, these are good. Very good. Uses only 3 ingredients and you can use lower fat or no-fat versions of 2 of them.
I got the original recipe off of Canadian Free Stuff. Since I can never make anything the way it’s written, and I just LOVE adding cream and junk to stuff like this, I changed it ever so slightly.
The mixture is not very dense so what I did with the popsicle sticks is used a trick I found on Amazon from a reviewer–I secured them from falling too far into the pop with small binder clips.
|Use Small Binder Clips To Prevent Sinking Sticks|
- 2 cups extra creamy whipped topping
- 6 tbs Nutella
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup light cream
Place milk, cream and Nutella in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer or stick blender (preferred OR regular blender, Ninja or Vitamix) combine the Nutella and the milk/cream mixture.
Add the whipped topping and stir until well combined–I used a spoon to do this but the mixer/stick blender will also do well here.
Pour into popsicle molds, insert sticks if needed and freeze for 4-6 hours, preferably overnight.
FOR LOWER FAT/CALORIE POPS: substitute low-fat or non-fat milk for the whole milk & cream. You will use 1 cup. Also non-fat or “lite” whipped topping may be subbed.
Makes 10 popsicles.
NUTRITIONAL INFO IS FOR MY RECIPE, NOT LOWER FAT VERSION

Sometimes pop recipes are too soft and the stick comes out but the treat does not. How is this recipe in that respect?

Cindy, I didn't have a problem with these. Although I tell you, they melt VERY quickly. I do use wooden sticks and I think that has a lot to do with why they stay put. I'm using a Norpro mold – the pic is on my posts I make with it. The sticks WILL sink but if you look on my fan page on Facebook in "timeline" pics, you'll see how that can be prevented. It's an idea I found on Amazon.
Try just a few with wooden sticks and see how it comes out. What I would do so this doesn't happen is either use small Dixie cups that you can just tear off or those silicone molds.
Hope this helps…and let me know how you did with it.
