These Nutella cream puffs take the traditional pate a choux dessert to a whole new level! These pastries are filled with a cream, Nutella whipped cream and glazed with chocolate, garnished with chopped hazelnuts and white chocolate. These cream puffs are easy enough to make for an everyday dessert and elegant enough to serve for a special occasion!

I love making pate a choux desserts – they dough is so easy to make, super versatile and always yields a show-stopping dessert! For these Nutella cream puffs, I wanted to incorporate the chocolatey, nutty goodness of Nutella with airy, fluffy profiteroles. The dough puffs up beautifully in the oven, turning golden brown and empty on the inside, which is perfect for filling with cream!
For extra Nutella flavor, try piping the hazelnut spread directly into the cream puffs, along with the filling. Also, try playing around with different garnishes for the top! For the video recipe, I used 1 1/2 cups heavy cream. For a thicker filling, I recommend using 1 cup of heavy cream.
