Nutella Strawberry Tart

If you love Nutella, you’re going to love this Nutella Strawberry Tart. A shortbread crust is filled with a Nutella pudding and topped with fresh strawberries. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream!


Oh my God you guys. I made heaven. Seriously.

Do you love Nutella as much as I do? I have to hide the container in my cabinet so I don’t attack it with a spoon. This tart is full of Nutella pudding. And it’s topped with strawberries. I love chocolate and strawberry together. It’s my favorite way to eat fruit, if we’re being totally honest.

On Easter we went to a buffet and they had a chocolate fountain for dessert. You know what that fountain got me to eat? Pineapple. Something I won’t normally touch with a 10-foot pole. So, yeah. Chocolate + Fruit is totally acceptable.

And the crust. The CRUST. You guys – it’s shortbread.

So, let’s put it all together. Shortbread Crust + Nutella Pudding + Strawberries = Heaven. Am I right or am I right?


The crust is super easy to make. You all know how much I hate rolling, right? It’s up there with dipping? And being patient? So I made a shortbread crust (the one I made Apple Butter Pie Bars with) and I pressed it into my tart pan. The only difference between this crust and that other one is that I used cold butter. And my food processor.

I took this picture because if you make this tart you’ll probably think there isn’t enough dough to fill the whole tart pan. You have to press and press and press. But this is proof – there is enough dough!

You’re going to pre-bake the tart shell, so you want to prevent bubbling. You can use beans or pie weights. I prefer a fork. Prick the bottom of the tart several times with the tines of a fork before baking. No bubbling!

Bake and cool your tart. Then comes the fun part!


I made my tart filling using my new favorite kitchen tools from Kizmos. You remember them? A few months ago, I made a White Chocolate Macadamia Magic Pizza using the fun and smiley Kizmos tools. I cut the pizza with Bob, my pizza cutter, and opened the can of sweetened condensed milk with Chrissy, the can opener.

This month I’m introducing you to the Kizmos measuring cups and colanders. I am in love with the measuring cups. The Get Happy Measuring cups are the perfect size. (I know…all measuring cups are the same size. But if you bake often and use a variety of cups, you’ll know they aren’t all created equal. These are perfect – the handles and cups are wide and perfect for scooping.)

And, Kizmos has possibly the cutest kind of measuring cups ever: Nesting Measuring Cups. Think Russian Nesting Dolls…but measuring cups. It’s like a toy that’s also a measuring cup. Those of you with toddlers and young children will delight in using them. The Nesting Measuring Cups were perfect for measuring out the Nutella – deep and wide so that I could get a small spatula inside to dig it all out into the pan.

And, possibly my favorite Kizmos product: the colanders.


They smile at you while you clean your produce. How adorable is that?

I still haven’t named my new Kizmos products. What do you think? I think the purple colander looks kind of like a Kimmy. What do you think?

Okay, so let’s talk Nutella pudding, mmkay? Best. Pudding. Everrrrr.

You heat your Nutella, milk, salt, and extracts in a pan to melt it. I used a combination of vanilla extract and hazelnut extract, because I had it in my pantry. You can skip the hazelnut if you don’t have it. Then you thicken the pudding by adding more milk that has been mixed with cornstarch. This is an egg-free pudding! Who knew?

Oh, the possibilities…

It comes together super easy and fast. Simply pour into the tart shell and chill and you have a gorgeous dessert. I added the strawberries right before serving. I suggest you do that too – day old washed strawberries just aren’t quite…right. If strawberries don’t look good at the market, you could also do this with raspberries. That would be just as good!

Seriously, heaven people.


I should know. Guess who ate 2/3 of the tart? {Shhhh….don’t tell my trainer…}

Nutella Strawberry Tart

If you love Nutella, you’re going to love this Nutella Strawberry Tart. A shortbread crust is filled with a Nutella pudding and topped with fresh strawberries. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream!


For the Crust:

  • 1/2 cup butter, cold and diced
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)

For the Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon hazelnut extract, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 cups strawberries, stem removed and cut in half


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Pulse flour and sugar in a food processor. Add diced butter and pulse for about 20-30 seconds, until the butter is broken up. Add the vinegar and run until dough comes together in the machine.
  3. Turn dough out into a 10” tart pan with a removable bottom. Press with your hands up the sides and across the bottom. It will seem there isn’t enough dough – but there is, just keep working it! Poke the bottom of the tart several times with a fork. Bake for 20-23 minutes, until it just begins to brown. Cool before filling.
  4. When ready to fill the tart shell, make the filling. Whisk the cornstarch into 1/4 cup milk in a small bowl. Add the remaining 1 3/4 cup milk, Nutella, salt, and extracts to a pan. Whisk over medium heat until the Nutella melts, then whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. It will start to thicken. Once the mixture starts to boil, stir constantly until fully thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour into the crust. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
  5. Top with strawberries before serving. Store in refrigerator.

I love Nutella so much that I can’t get enough. I love making things like Nutella Chocolate Pudding Cookies or Peanut Butter Nutella Nutter Butter Pie and I’m obsessing over Nutella 5 Chip Cookies by What’s Cooking with Ruthie, Banana Monkey Bread with Nutella Ganache by Wine & Glue, and Nutella Kiss Cookies by Something Swanky.

  66. My favorite kitchen tool at the moment is this measuring cup thing from Pampered chef.

Then you can flip it over and use the other side for measuring liquids. I love it!

  67. What a gorgeous tart, pure perfection., and Nutella, too. My favorite kitchen tool is my immersion blender or my microplane zester.

  72. We use our cast iron skillet for everything, so it has to be the collective favorite, but i have a two tablespoon scoop that i also love. The Kizmos are definitely the cutest things I’ve ever seen for the kitchen. i love the colander!

  77. Love everything about this tart! Can’t go wrong with nutella and strawberries!

  79. My tea bag squisher! I thought it was just one of those gadgets you only get someone who has everything, but I love it. Especially since I’ve given up (mostly) my beloved Diet Coke with LIme and started drinking only iced tea (cheaper and better for me). I use it every day.

  80. My favorite kitchen tool is my KitchenAid stand mixer – I use it daily! My new time saver is shredding chicken in it… So Easy!!

  81. I just had a very rare moment where you HOPE that someone asks you to some sort of event you’ll have to cook for, because I want an excuse to make this ASAP. It sounds perfect.

  83. my kitchen aid mixer!

  84. My favorite kitchen tool is probably my Kitchen Stand Mixer. I use it everyday! And these tarts look so amazing. That silky nutella pudding with the strawberries, yes please.

  85. My favorite kitchen tool is a big plastic spoon. When I was little, my mom gave me 3 yellow kool aid spoons, (you know, the ones with the kool-aid guy’s face on them?), and I use them for EVERYTHING. They still work really well, and are the perfect size and shape.

  86. This is one beautiful looking tart! Nutella!!! Strawberries!!! No need to say any more!
    I’d have to say my favorite kitchen tool is my chef’s knife… even though I recently sliced my index finger with it!

  87. Too many favourite kitchen tools to list, but do use my microplaner a lot. Also love my Le Creuset dutch oven

  88. This is truly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!! No joking. I love Nutella and strawberries together! Strawberries have been so sweet and delicious lately, I can only imagine how wonderful they taste in this tart!

  89. My favorite kitchen tool is my cookie scoops.

  90. My favorite kitchen tool is definitely my pizza cutter, I love making cookie pizzas and regular pizzas alike!

  91. I have to pick just one??? Maybe my Kitchen Aid mixer or my Pampered Chef measure thing that you push out the bottom and it plops out peanut butter or butter. (That’s the official name, of course.) =o)

  92. Love the Nutella and strawberries mix

  93. Measuring tools and silicon spoons

  94. I got a pair of herb scissors recently and use them quite frequently!

  95. My silpat mats

  101. I am the same in that I cannot keep Nutella in the house without going at it with a spoon! I love strawberries too so I can’t wait to give this a go!

  102. Oh so gorgeous! Nutella PUDDING? Mind blown. Totally cliche, but my fave tool is my standing mixer. Honestly, I think that with the proper attachments, I could save the world!

  103. My favorite is a spatula by product of gir. Things awesome!

  104. I love Nutella! This tart looks phenomenal. I can’t think of anything much better than strawberries in chocolate except perhaps strawberries in Nutella! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe! Krista @ A Handful of Everything

  105. My whisk..all the way:)

  108. id love to win.. thanks.. : )

  109. Nutella and strawberries are literally my all time favorite combination. Whenever I have strawberries in the fridge I sneak over to the nutella jar and dip a few in (this is also the reason why I have 2 nutella jars – one for dipping and one for cooking haha). This tart sounds absolutely divine Dorothy!

  110. It all sounds perfect to me.

  111. Mmmm…Nutella. Ambrosia. Add crust and strawberries, make it into a pudding? Definitely inspired!

  112. i think spatulas are pretty darn handy : )

  113. Probably my pizza stone. I was just thinking that I need a new pizza cutter and vegetable peeler. Mine are getting worn out!

    Good point about not ending up with soggy strawberries.

  114. My favorite kitchen tool is my stand mixer.

  115. My favorite kitchen tool is an apple cutter, because we eat a ton of apples and pears everyday…sometimes I have to cut my boys off the the fruit!!!

  116. Oh my word! This pie is not only stunning to look at, but I can almost taste it now…and it’s goooood! 🙂

  119. Real chefs don’t like this gadget, but I’m not a real chef and am not crazy about finely chopping garlic, so I have a lot of love for my garlic press.

  120. My favorite kitchen tools are my Elevate Spatulas by Joseph Joseph

  121. Dorothy this looks absolutely gorgeous.
