Gelato with Salted Nutella Fudge Brownie

Thick, creamy Nutella gelato with fudgy brownie bits and a dash of sea salt!

Everyone else is creating fantastic strawberry dishes, eye-catching blueberry meals, and lovely fruity beverages, while I’m preparing salted Nutella fudge brownie gelato.

You guys, the heart wants what the heart desires.

To be honest, I created this recipe because I had a few Vermont Brownie Company Walnut Chunk brownies in the cupboard that I wanted to utilize in a dish rather than simply consuming them while sitting on the sofa.

I just cut them up and threw them in at the end of the churning cycle to add depth and a chocolaty nutty taste to my gelato. I really like add-ins.

…as well as some chopped chocolate.


The dog wanted to eat it but didn’t understand. No, chocolate is unhealthy for you, don’t lick the bowl, and stop eating the blasted gelato.

How this gelato differs from ice cream

As you pour this gelato into your container, it will not be as thick and fluffy as ice cream. It’s roughly half the volume of a regular churned ice cream recipe, so keep that in mind when calculating how many servings you’ll get out of it.

For me? Most likely three. Maybe four.

But then again, serving sizes don’t really matter to me.

Soft right from the freezer

One of the good things about this is that you don’t have to wait for it to soften before digging in; it’s ready to eat right out of the freezer.

What kind of brownies should I use?

Use anything you want! If you have leftover pre-made brownies, slice up one or two of them (depending on the size). If you have a bakery-style, massive monster of a brownie, one should enough.

Make a batch of handmade fugdy brownies and donate a few to the cause of this gelato.

Got Nutella fever now? Me, too.
