For the Pavlova

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Filling

  • 1 cup (130 grams) raw, unsalted hazelnuts
  • 2 cups (480 grams) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (300 grams) Nutella, divided
  • 4 ounces (113 grams) sweetened chocolate


For the Pavlova

  • Preheat the oven to 250°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Using a handheld or stand mixer, whip the egg whites on medium-high speed. Add the granulated sugar gradually and then allow the mixture to whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and pipe 4” circles on the lined baking sheet, making sure that it is thick enough to support the toppings once cooked.
  • Bake for 90 minutes, or until they are firm and dry but not brown. Turn off the oven and leave the pavlovas to cool inside, about 1-2 hours.

For the Fillings

  • In a small frying pan over medium heat, toast the hazelnuts for 2-3 minutes, stirring often. They should start to smell fragrant but make sure not to let them burn!
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Then roughly chop them. Set the chopped nuts aside until ready to use.
  • Once the hazelnuts are cool, beat the heavy cream with a handheld or stand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add ½ cup of Nutella and mix just until combined.
  • Heat the remaining ½ cup of Nutella in a small bowl in the microwave until smooth and pourable.
  • Coat the top of the pavlova with the Nutella-flavored whipped cream. Next, add the melted Nutella and chopped hazelnuts.
  • Finish the pavlova with shaved chocolate on top and serve immediately.
