This ultimate no-bake 5 minutes ‘Nutella Mousse’ is vegetarian, gluten-free, and egg-free. Yes, it comes together in 5 minutes.

The whole thing practically needed 5 minutes of my effective time.

What are the tips, tricks, and variations to make Nutella mousse?

Tip 1. You really don’t need anything to top this mousse. But to fancy things up, I added a dollop of whipped cream topping. However, that is absolutely optional. 

Tip 2. I have added the instant coffee powder to this Nutella mousse. This addition of coffee to the chocolate mousse takes it to the next level. It brightens the chocolate flavor. If you are not a fan of coffee, then feel free to omit it from the recipe.

Tip 3. If you want just a hint of coffee then add only 1/4 teaspoon of instant coffee powder to this mousse.

Tip 4. I have whipped the Nutella and coffee with whipping cream. But you can also use a silicone spatula to fold it.

Tip 5. You can directly pour/scoop the mousse into serving dishes or you can also use a piping bag to pipe.

Tip 6. This mousse has no egg or gelatin in it. So to make it set correctly, you will have to whip the cream until stiff peaks form.

Tip 7. Refrigerate this Nutella Mousse for at least for 4 hours. You can also leave it overnight to set.

Tip 8. If you want to speed up the setting process, then cover the glasses with some cling wrap and freeze mousse for 1-2 hours.

Tip 9. If you want to enjoy Nutella Mousse ice cream, then freeze it for 4-5 hours and enjoy it like ice cream.

Tip 10. You can store Nutella Mousse in the fridge, covered with plastic wrap for up to 2-3 days. 

Tip 11. Feel free to use any of your preferred toppings. 

Tip 12. Make sure to serve it chilled because you only get intensified Nutella flavors in the chilled Nutella mousse. 

Tip 13. This Nutella Mousse recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
