Nutella embodied in a Shot

It’s no secret… I’m a big fan of the Chocolate-Hazelnut flavor combination.

So far I’ve used this flavor profile to make these cookies…

as well as these…

I’ve also used it to frost a cake…

to add a little “PZAZZ!” to a cheesecake…

And let’s not forget one of the best ways to enjoy this flavor combination,
in the form of gelato of course!

So, this weekend I decided I would use this flavor profile to bring you this week’s cocktail.

Gianduia (Chocolate-Hazelnut) Shot

serves 3

3 ounces Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur
3 ounces Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1.5 ounce heavy whipping cream

Nutella to rim the glasses

Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake for 15-20 seconds. Serve in Nutella rimmed shot glasses.

If I wasn’t nuts about Nutella before the post I certainly am now! Beautiful.


3 Sally January 22, 2011 at 9:56 am

Why haven’t I got Frangelico in my cupboard? These pictures are beautiful….and so is the idea…dangerously beautiful!

I starred this post because I want to make EVERYTHING you showed. I have a new obsession with Nutella!


6 Miriam/The Winter Guest January 22, 2011 at 10:52 am

Wow, this must be truly delicious! I looove Frangelico too…

There is nothing sad about Nutella in a glass or any of the other things mentioned. I admit that I even eat Nutella out of the jar with a spoon, I’m not above it.
Thanks for sharing, these are so going on my “to make” list.


8 bhavani@ameanderingmango January 22, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Yum – great idea! chocolate and hazelnuts are a fantastic combination – I too could eat spoonfuls of nutella straight out of the jar! thanks for the post.


9 Darcy January 22, 2011 at 9:39 pm

OH MY GOODNESS. I’m about to have to take a field-trip to my pantry and just attack some nutella with a spoon. These shots look absolutely positively decadently divine.
I’ll take those cookies as an appetizer, the cake for dinner, a hunk of that cheesecake for dessert and some gelato as a midnight snack….with a shot or two along with each course please!!


10 Cristina January 23, 2011 at 10:14 am

Oh Josie – these shots look heavenly! A sinful and decadent grown-up treat. I luv that last image shot. Salute to you too! ;)


11 Lana January 23, 2011 at 10:44 am

There are a few things more satisfying in life than a combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. The shot looks great, and I can only imagine the way it tastes.
Your photos are incredible:)


12 Maria Dsouza January 23, 2011 at 11:16 am

Beautiful Pics and unique drink will surely try it


13 briarrose January 23, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I’m pretty sure I drooled on my keyboard. ;)


14 Nancy@acommunaltable January 23, 2011 at 10:10 pm

Can I have one of everything pictured? Please, pretty please???

This cocktail would be the perfect ending for an elegant dinner party – rich, decadent and sophisticated. Have bookmarked this page for future reference!!

17 Laura January 24, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Be still my heart! That is simply divine… thanks for passing along another bit of sweet treat brilliance! :)


18 Steph@stephsbitebybite January 24, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Whoa Mama!! This is too good to be true!! I would be licking the rim until there was absolutely no trace of Nutella left!


19 Kate @ January 24, 2011 at 3:27 pm

20 Evan Thomas January 24, 2011 at 3:44 pm

25 Tes January 25, 2011 at 5:32 am

What a cool idea! Now I think nutella is like a magic ingredient. :)


26 sara @CaffeIna January 25, 2011 at 7:54 am

you should call this “Nutella da bere” and sell it in Italy! You would become our new national hero!


27 Aimee January 25, 2011 at 8:29 am

Oh boy, I think I could down all three of those very quickly. I’m adding these to the list for my next party!


28 Sara, Ms. Adventures in Italy January 25, 2011 at 9:20 am

Yum! We’ve got to get these recipes in the World Nutella Day recipe list! Hope you’ll be making another Nutella creation for Feb. 5th

30 Christina January 25, 2011 at 12:42 pm

You know something? I have all of these ingredients in the house, so WHY have I not thought to put them together? Thank you!


31 Anne January 25, 2011 at 9:24 pm

34 Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction January 27, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Oh my goodness… I adore all things Nutella. This is absolutely brilliant. I am in love with that Godiva liqueur, too… Mmmmm :)


35 Tiffany January 31, 2011 at 10:03 am

One word came to mind as I read this post: PERFECT! :)


36 Patrick Z March 9, 2011 at 9:54 am

Love the work (the photos are beautiful).
Favorite way to use the flavors together? AFFOGATO!
In a martini glass place 1 or 2 scoops of the best chocolate gelato you can find.
Pour a shot of Frangelico over. Brew 1 pull of nice espresso and pour over while still hot (crushed hazelnut biscotti are welcome at this point also).
The combo of warm & cold with the sweet & alcohol is AMAZING.


37 Daydreamer Desserts March 10, 2011 at 5:59 am

Wow, sounds heavenly!! Will have to give it a try!


38 Caitlin April 13, 2011 at 2:40 pm

How delicious! I also really LOVE the paisley table cloth!! Where can I get one!?


39 Daydreamer Desserts April 13, 2011 at 2:50 pm

Thank you! It’s actually not a table cloth, just a regular dinner napkin I picked up at World Market. :)


40 Emily April 18, 2011 at 1:58 pm

this looks incredible! Another Nutella food that I have found while traveling in Sicily is Nutella pizza! I know, sounds amazing and it tastes even better! Maybe try some petite cupcake sized pizzas with nutella? just saying anything with nutella is incredible! Sono ossessionato con NUTELLA!


41 Daydreamer Desserts April 18, 2011 at 2:04 pm

I hear ya, same here when it comes to Nutella. And, mini Nutella pizzas sound incredible, will definitely need to do a little experimenting. :)


42 שף בבית May 29, 2011 at 1:25 am

45 Gisella April 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Not only do the Nutella Shots look fantastic, but the “Shut the Front Door” comment has had me laughing for an hour!


46 Lisa April 27, 2012 at 12:32 pm

I love you blog and enjoy all of your recipes and photos – so much so that I would love to share them using Pinterest. Will you make your blog available to Pinterest? It is a shame that you do not. I see your photos up everywhere and the links are not coming back to you. You deserve the credit!


47 Daydreamer Desserts May 3, 2012 at 9:42 pm

Hi Lisa!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I’m glad you are enjoying the blog. I finally figured out the permission issue which was preventing you from pinning one of my images, and just fixed it. So give it a shot, it should work now. Pin away my friend, pin away… ;)



48 Jim August 1, 2014 at 8:16 pm

I am a huge fan of Nutella and Frangelico…I can’t wait to try these shots…thank you
