Strawberry Nutella Panini

I LOVE Nutella!!! Some of you guys might have picked that up from my About Page and my fantastic Nutella Chunk Cookies but I am just re-stating the fact. Most recently I made a Strawberry- Nutella Panini. Believe me, this recipe can’t go wrong. 🙂

Strawberry Nutella Panini

This recipe possibly might be a child’s “dream lunch.” After eating this though, you might not want to offer them dessert.

Butter the bread. Then add a layer of Nutella and strawberries.

Now THAT is what I call a yummy combination! Strawberries and Nutella on Challah Bread.

As soon as you put the top piece of bread on the strawberries and Nutella, you are ready to put the Strawberry- Nutella Panini on the panini press.

So the panini won’t get completely squashed, push down very lightly on the handle of the panini press.


Some people may think all paninis are “good.” I will show them that this panini rises above all other “good” paninis because this panini isn’t good. It’s AWESOME!

Powdered Sugar on Strawberry Nutella Panini

The powdered sugar  and cinnamon both add a yummy twist to this recipe. The panini tastes great with these two ingredients but the only down side is that the powdered sugar gets all over your hands. So what.

The Nutella epically oozes out of the delicious panini when you eat it.

I approve. This recipe was made to perfection and it tasted like it too. I liked the way the Nutella melted into the strawberries. All of the ingredients swirled together into one big yummy flavor. I LOVED this recipe and I hope everyone else that makes it will love it too.

P.S. If you don’t have a panini press, you need one!!  But you can always make this like a grilled cheese instead (in a pan).

And even a kid can make a lunch that tastes more like a dessert than a meal… Like Me!

This looks delicious and gives me an excellent reason to break out the panini press that we received a few years ago and shamefully have never used. Even better, it's a great excuse to buy the mondo two pack of Nutella at Costco! I wonder if this recipe would be good with bananas or bananas AND strawberries! Not sure how the bananas would hold up in the panini press, but I might just give it a try ;) Thanks for the recipe. You are one cool kid!

Yummy looks fantastic. I know it taste fantastic. Always glad costco sells the double large Nutella packs for under 8 dollers the way my family is. ;)
