Nutella & Caramel Stuffed Brioche 
With this weekend being Memorial Day in America and the grilling season being upon us, I thought it would be fun to share a quick and easy dessert with you that I think the whole family will love.

Nutella & Caramel Stuffed Brioche is a simple dessert that is really quick and easy to make and fun to make as well.  You can assemble it ahead to a certain point and then finish it up quickly at the last minute, which makes it the perfect dessert for entertaining.

Not only that but you can shrink  or expand the recipe to serve as many or as few people as you want.  If its just you, then you can make just one.

If there are more, you can easily make more than one.  The buns are meant to be toasted over the dying embers of your charcoal grill, or on the cooler edges of your gas grill, but don't worry if you don't have a grill!

I don't have an outdoor grill, and I can tell you that this tasty dessert can also be cooked indoors in an oven or a toaster oven. (I did this in my toaster oven.) 

Its incredibly adaptable.  I cannot claim the inspiration for this myself.  I adapted it from an idea that I saw on the Sainsbury Magazine site and it is accredited to Helen Graves.

Sainsbury's is the name of a popular grocery chain in the UK.  I used to love shopping there.  They also put out a food magazine every month and I loved to buy their magazine.  I shall miss it for sure! 

As soon as I saw this recipe, I was intrigued.  It looked so easy to make and delicious.

Recipes like this are great for the summer months when the outdoor temperatures are rising and you don't want to heat up your kitchen by baking a dessert for a special occasion. 

And it could not get any simpler.  You begin by spreading the cut sides of a brioche burger bun with some Nutella chocolate spread.

I adore Nutella.  It is so rich and delicious and creamy.  I love to spread it on simple cookies/biscuits, like social tea's or in the UK malted milk cookies.  Seriously tasty. 

Its a wonderful ingredient to use in simple desserts like this one. So creamy and chocolatey.

The Nutella gets spread on the cut sides of the brioche buns and then you sprinkle them with a mix of toasted nuts and dried cherries.  She used raisins, but cherries and chocolate go together so well, I just couldn't resist using cherries.

This will be a pretty sweet dessert so the tartness of the cherries makes a welcome contrast.

I used some chopped toasted nuts from a nut mix I had. There were almonds, cashews, macadamias, pecans and brazil nuts. It was perfect.

A bit of crunchy nuttiness. Again, going very well with the cherries and the nutella.

The outside of the bun gets brushed with melted butter and then you heat them gently, covered tightly with foil, over the waning coals, cooling edge or in the oven/toaster oven.

Just until the bun toasts a tiny bit and is warmed through, that Nutella beginning to melt.

You want the buns to be all toasty and buttery on the outside but soft on the inside.  

Once you have achieved perfection here, you can take them off the grill and fill them with a good vanilla ice-cream, drizzle them with some warmed dulce de leche, and replace the tops, again drizzling them with more dulce de leche.

A final sprinkle of a few more nuts and cherries and dessert is ready to serve.  Easy and indulgent.  Delicious. 

Gilded and buttery rich brioche . . .  I do so love brioche.  Its a lovely bread and perfect for this.  Creamy, chocolaty Nutella  . . .  deliciously scrummy . . .

Ice cold vanilla bean ice cream, my favorite of all the ice cream flavors . . . topped with that sticky sweet caramel. 

The salty crunchiness of the toasted nuts, the tartness of the dried cherries . . . 

Nutella & Caramel Stuffed Brioche

 Altogether this is one beautifully simple, indulgent and delicious dessert!  Make sure you tell your guests to leave room for dessert and they know that you mean it!  This is quite filling.

You could always cut the rolls in half crosswise so that each roll feeds two. Its all up to you and your appetites!!!!  I could not eat the whole thing myself.  But I sure did enjoy the few bites that I had.  I think you will too!

This is a scrumptious dessert you can cook on the coals of your grill while you are eating your mail course. Easy and delicious! Quantities are for one, but can be multiplied to serve as many as you wish.


  • 1/2 TBS butter
  • 1 Brioche burger bun
  • 2 TBS Nutella
  • 2 TBS toasted nuts and dried cherries, coarsely chopped
  • 2 TBS dulce de leche
  • vanilla ice cream to serve


  1. Have ready a foil pan large enough to hold as many buns as you are doing.  
  2. Split the bun and spread the insides with the nutella. Sprinkle inside with half of the nuts, and put the buns back together.  
  3. Melt the butter and brush the outsides of the bun with it. Put the bun into the foil pan and cover tightly with more foil.
  4. Place on the edge of your grill to warm and toast. (Alternately you can warm them in a 350*F/180*C/gas mark 4 oven.  You want it to be a little toasty on the outside, but still soft inside. 
  5. Warm the dulce de leche.  Remove the bun from the foil pan and place onto a plate.  
  6. Open up and top the bottom half with some vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with a bit of the dulce de leche.  Place the top bun on top of the ice cream and drizzle with the remaining dulce de leche. Sprinkle with the remaining nuts/cherries and serve immediately.
