I love meringues—sweet, airy, and feather light egg white meringues that just melt in the mouth.
I especially love meringues when there is a hidden treasure inside every of them.
The hidden treasure will not reveal itself until you take a bite of the meringues, so there is always an anticipation.
Everything tastes better with a bit of Nutella, especially meringues.
And these Nutella Meringues get an easy upgrade of Nutella, everyone’s favorite creamy hazelnut spread that makes each bite simply decadent.
My favorite part is the slight crunch you encounter just before making it to the middle.
It is the perfect contrast in texture.
These meringues are great to prepare in advance for a special occasion, festive season, or just to enjoy yourself.
It’s an amazing sweet dessert.
With minimal ingredients, this Nutella Meringues recipe is a keeper for its simple preparation and all around deliciousness.

Nutella Meringues Recipe
Light and sweet Nutella Meringue. Every bite is filled with thick gooey Nutella. Easy Nutella Meringue recipe that anyone can make at home.
- 4 egg whites
- 1 cup white sugar (240 mL)
- 12 teaspoons Nutella (60 mL)
1Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
2In a stand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff. Slowly add the white sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
3Transfer the meringue batter to a piping bag and snip the end of bag with a pair of scissors to create a 1/2-inch opening. Pipe a dozen 1 1/2-inch meringue circles onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, making sure to leave 2 inches in between each. Top each meringue circle with one teaspoon of Nutella, and then cover with the remaining meringue.
4Bake for 20 minutes; then lower the temperature to 170 degrees F and bake for another 40 minutes.
5Remove the meringues from the oven and leave to dry overnight.
When creating the meringue batter, if peaks do not form after incorporating the sugar, stand the bowl in a saucepan of hot water and beat for a few minutes.
