A Simple Valentine’s Day…Nutella Pastry Cream


  • 3 Cups of Whole Milk
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 6 Egg Yolks
  • 1/3 Cup Corn Starch
  • 1.5 Cups Nutella


  • Combine eggs and corn starch in a bowl with a whisk.
  • Pour milk and sugar into a medium sized sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  • Once the milk boils, pour the milk into the egg mixture one ladle at a time; using half of the egg mixture. ***This is called tempering. You want to do this because if you combine the hot liquid with the eggs without tempering they will curdle.***
  • At this point pour the egg mixture back into the sauce pan and bring it back up to a boil while stirring vigorously with a whisk.
  • Once the pastry cream has thickened up, remove from heat and add nutella.
  • Pour into beautiful glasses or ramekins and cool until ready to eat.
  • Garnish with confectioners sugar and enjoy.
