Nutella Bites

Fillo Cups save the day again! I have formed a habit of keeping a box of these in my freezer for emergency appetizers or desserts. The other day, it happened, Himself came home from Zuzu’s baseball game saying we had been invited to dinner that evening. “That evening” happened to be in 15 minutes. Thankfully I remembered the Fillo Cups. I also had some Nutella and Mascarpone lingering about along with some leftover fresh whipped cream. Ta Da! Dessert in under 5 minutes. Topped with some grated chocolate and mint from the garden, these little treats made a big show.

Nutella Bites
Mix a big spoonful of Mascarpone with a big spoonful of Nutella. Fill all 15 Fillo Cups using a small spoon with the Nutella mixture and top with a bit of whipped cream. Sprinkle with grated chocolate and decorate with mint leaves. Serves 6-7.

Liren at Kitchen Confidante has an actual recipe for these if you need one. Hers are super pretty! And while we are on the topic of Nutella, you must try Michelle’s Nutella Fudge Brownies over at One Ordinary Day.

Mascarpone mixes well with fresh raspberries, or peanut butter and honey, or grated chocolate and orange rind, or instant espresso and powdered sugar, or any other additions you can think of for fantastic fillings for these little Fillo Cups.

    This would be a big improvement over eating nutella from a spoon.
