For your Special Someone: Mini Nutella Whipped Pudding Pies for Two

The past week has seen an outpour of grief over the heartbreaking post by popular food blogger, recipe writer, and food editor, Jennifer Perillo. I don’t know her personally, but I follow her blog and know we live in the same borough. On Sunday she tragically lost her husband and wrote a sad, yet beautiful post. Please read it if you have time, then you’ll know why bloggers and others around the world have made Peanut Butter Pies today. I didn’t follow her recipe exactly because I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand, so I created a quick whipped mini pudding pie version using Nutella instead of peanut butter.

Mini Nutella Whipped Pudding Pies Recipe (A Pie for Mikey)

  • 2 Oreo cookies, without cream center
  • 1/8 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup cream, whipped
  • ground cookies and almonds for garnish
  • (optional)

    Grind slivered almonds in a food processor or mortar and pestle until almost like powder and reserve. Do the same for the chocolate cookies. Place cookie crumbs on the bottom of 2 small glasses or bowls (see pictures). Save a little extra of the ground almonds and cookies for garnish at the end. In a small bowl, whip the cream until you get soft peaks. Mix both the ground almonds and Nutella, then lightly mix the whipped cream and almond Nutella mixture together. Place mixture on top of cookie crumbs and sprinkle some crumbs on top. Chill in fridge until ready to eat.

    Total Time: 20 minutes
    Yield: 2 small servings

      I was rather confused when yesterday to see so many peanut butter pies on tastespotting, so cheers for sharing that bit of information. On a happier note, these sound very tasty indeed, and since my special lady friend is a massive fan of Nutella, this recipe has been copied down for future testing. 🙂

        Thanks Mr Bacon, definitely try to make it, it came out great. Maybe put some crispy bacon bits on top for your blog?

          Will do, and I promise to return with my “verdict” 😉 Bacon on top isn’t a bad idea, actually! It does tend to go well with chocolate – though I think I will make my Mrs one without, as she’s getting rather fed up with having bacon in everything – god knows why! 😉
