These stuffed raspberries are simple, elegant, and taste fantastic – a bit like Turkish delight, only juicier.
What you’ll need:
1/2 pint of raspberries
1/4 cup or more nutella (If you want to avoid the dairy or the palm oil that’s in nutella, there are many recipes online for healthier versions. This one by Yankee Kitchen Ninja is dairy free.)
a plastic bag with sharp corners (like a ziploc) or a pastry bag
What you’ll do:
Rinse and dry the raspberries.
Put a quarter cup of nutella in one of the bottom corners of the plastic bag. Squeeze the bag above it to make a cone shaped funnel out of the corner. Twist the bag to seal the nutella in the corner and then cut the tip of the corner off, making sure not to make too big a hole. Now you have a makeshift pastry bag.
One by one, stuff the raspberries by squeezing the nutella out of the bag and into the berry. You will feel the berry plump when it is full. If the nutella is too stiff, you can soften it by working it around in the bag. If it is too soft, put it in the fridge for a few minutes.
Arrange berries on a plate. Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for a few hours. If refrigerated, let them sit for a few minutes to come back to room temperature before serving. Do not put the berries “face down” in the fridge. The nutella hardens and will stick to the plate.
It’s not as pretty, but you can, of course, also stuff the berries by using a knife. What you don’t want to do is smear the nutella on the outside of the berries. It’s chocolate flavour will overwhelm the taste of the berry.

Oh, my….my favorite berry with chocolate? (Helen passes out on floor, drooling).
Hope you have recovered 🙂 They are very tasty.
I crawled to the fridge and licked the Hershey’s syrup bottle…much improved. hahaha
That is almost too pretty to eat! Raspberry and Nutella, what more does a person need?!
Thanks, and I agree about raspberries and nutella. I am actually new to nutella and for the last couple of weeks have been looking at different foods and thinking, “I wonder what nutella would taste like with that!”
I first discovered Nutella back in 1990 when I was an exchange student in Germany. For the longest time it was hard to find in the States. We love it, especially the boys as a special treat. Goes well with everything, especially bananas.
Ooooh bananas. Havn’t tried that yet!
I’m going to have to give these a shot! Berries and chocolate… yummy!
They are really very good. I hear dipping strawberries in nutella is good as well.
This is so amazing! Thank you for sharing.
You’re so welcome.
Hi, I nominated you for a couple of awards http://wp.me/p3uIV0-EQ. I appreciate your blog very much – my oldest son has Celiac disease.
Thank you so much for the nominations! You have made my week! And I am really glad that you appreciate my blog. It means a lot to me that others are getting something out of it! I hope your son is managing the gluten free diet well. There are getting to be more and more products available every day.
You are welcome. My son is doing great so far. It’s nice to have options – recipes, stores and restaurants now. It makes it easier.
Yummmmm what a great idea!
