Healthy Nutella Chocolate Candy Cups

As if I had my fill of healthy Nutella!  That’s just not possible.  I could eat the stuff straight up.

Wait, I did…  and um, I may have, just possibly ate it off of a knife.  Oh my, chocolate makes you do craaazzyy things sometimes.

So I made these candy cups in attempt to consume my Nutella in a safer manner.  Because a thick, sweet chocolate shell totally means this is safe…

I made my homemade Nutella as soon as I ran out (obviously), and serving them in a chocolate casing just sounded natural to me.  Each cup is sweet, creamy and absolutely delicious.  Yum!

Healthy Nutella Chocolate Candy Cups

Yield: 8 candy cups

Healthy Nutella Chocolate Candy Cups


  • 3.5oz Sugar Free Milk Chocolate, melted (or chocolate of choice)
  • 1/3 cup Homemade Nutella


  1. Spoon about ~2 tsp of melted chocolate into this mold or muffin liners and spread to make a chocolate base and chocolate "walls." Freeze for 30 minutes to an hour, or until chocolate is completely firm.
  2. Spoon ~1 tbs of the Nutella into each well, or until it comes close to the tops of the chocolate "walls," and flatten the surface by tapping the mold or liner on the counter a few times.
  3. Spoon ~1 tsp of melted chocolate onto the Nutella and spread until it touches the tops of the chocolate "walls." Refrigerate for at least 3 hours (the longer the better though, I know it's tough to wait!). Pop each cup onto a nice plate and serve (best when served chilled)


This recipe is: no bake, sugar free, gluten free!

Feel free to stir in some chopped hazelnuts into the “Nutella” and fill the Healthy Nutella Chocolate Candy Cups with that!

    i always adore your healthy-makeover-yet-full-of-deliciousness recipes!!

  6. I always taste test what I make before I give it to anyone to make sure it’s good enough to share, and if it is then I usually hand it out to my friends and family. These cups were actually a gift to my friend, sadly, because I wanted them all for myself 😉

  7. Oh yum!! I made homemade Nutella last summer, but right now I just have a regular jar of it. I can see these in my future!

    I have had an idea like this for a while but your recipe gave me the want to make them. I make a really good dark cocoa hazelnut butter (similar to your “nutella”, but very different at the same time) that I knew absolutely went perfectly for these. So I made them and they were absolutely delicious. I used baking chocolate melted down and mixed with Stevia instead for the solid chocolate part. Thanks for giving me something to do with my recipe of dark cocoa hazelnut butter. Your “nutella” recipe looks really good too by the way.
