When the heat gets to much to handle, I often depend upon Coconut Water or one of the many summer drinks to cool myself down. If you have faced an Indian summer, you know what I’m talking about! The summers are sometimes so unbearable that the only reason why people get out of their homes is to go to work.

Anyway, Nutella comes in really handy for making anything dessert look and taste ten times better! And to beat the summer heat, I put together a quick layered dessert starring the ever popular Nutella!

This Nutella Pudding and Mousse Trifle is just a simple yet fancy dessert in a glass! With a layer of nutella pudding and a layer of Nutella mousse, you’ve got a star!

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4 medium glasses or 12 small shots
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Whole Milk - refer note 1
  • 1 cup Cream - refer note 1
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch (cornflour)
  • 2 teaspoons Agar Agar or Gelatin powder (or 1 sheet)
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder (optional)
  • Nutella (as much or as little as you want!)
  • ½ cup Heavy Whipping Cream or 1 cup Whipped Cream
Notes
  • You can use a mixture of whole milk and cream or use just milk alone. Depends upon how rich you want the dessert to be
Instructions
  1. Mix the cornflour with about ¼ cup milk and set aside
  2. Bring the gelatin / agar agar and water to a boil until it melts into the water.
  3. Meanwhile bring the milk and sugar to a boil. Stir frequently to avoid burning of milk or cream. Let the sugar dissolve and continue to boil for around 5-6 minutes to reduce the milk by about ¼th.
  4. Add the cocoa powder, nutella to the milk and cream mixture and mix well.
  5. Once it dissolves, add the cornflour-milk mixture and cook on medium low heat.
  6. Let the mixture cook on low heat while constantly stirring to avoiding forming of lumps. In 3-4 minutes (or a little more), the mixture will start thickening. Cook until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  7. Add the gelatin or agar agar solution to the milk mixture and mix well. If the agar agar mixture has thickened up, reheat till is is in a liquid form again. Let the mixture boil and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Switch off the flame.
  8. A crucial step is to strain the mixture through a sieve to catch any kind of lumps.
  9. Once you have a smooth liquid mixture, keep stirring with a clean spoon to cool it down and to avoid forming skin. (refer Note 1)
  10. Take clean serving glasses or jars. Pour the pudding mixture to cover about ⅓rd height of the glasses. Cover the glasses with aluminum foil and place in the freezer to set. It will take about 30 minutes to 1 hour to set. Then you will have half of the pudding mixture left.
  11. Whip some cream to form stiff peaks. Pour the now cooled (at room temp) pudding mixture into the bowl with whipped cream. Gently fold the mixture into the whipped cream. This is your mousse mixture. Keep this in the refrigerator until the pudding layer is set.
  12. Remove the glasses once the pudding is almost set and divide the mousse mixture equally among these glasses. You can either add the mousse in a pastry bag and pipe out the mousse on the pudding neatly or simply do so with a spoon and tap out the glass to make an even layer.
  13. Again cover and set in the freezer for about 2-3 hours or until both layers are completely set.
  14. To decorate, drizzle melted nutella on top.
  15. Serve chilled.
Notes
  1. To fasten the cooling process, you can place the bowl with the pudding mixture on a larger vessel of cold water and continue to stir.

Remove the glasses and divide the mousse mixture equally among these glasses. You can add the mousse in a pastry bag and pipe out the mousse on the pudding more neatly. But I don’t really have patience for all that! 🙂 Again cover and set in the freezer for about 2-3 hours or until both layers are completely set.
