Strawberry Nutella Tart


I am so excited about today’s post. Partly because today’s fresh strawberry and nutella tart was one of the most gorgeous desserts I’ve photographed for a long time, and partly because this strawberry nutella tart is part of a new endeavor that I’m really excited to be a part of. I’ve teamed up with four other fabulous bloggers to do a monthly recipe challenge called the Yum of the Month. The way this works is each month one member chooses a theme or ingredient and then we all have to create a recipe around that  theme.

Strawberry Nutella Tart

The Yum of the Month team members are all talented baker bloggers who create gorgeous sweets and treats. Michelle from Giraffes Can Bake has such a wickedly creative mind when it comes to sweets. I mean this girl made deep fried cadbury eggs and a series of comic book inspired cocktails! Samantha blogs at Sugar Spun Run and makes the most beautiful cakes and bars. My blogger friend Shadi at Unicorns in the Kitchen brings a wonderful Persian flair to her recipes and just recently landed her first cookbook deal. Congrats Shadi!  And last, but not least, Wajeeha from  I Knead to Eat, who has such a unique perspective in her writing and has a talent for capturing drippy caramel and chocolate at just the right point in her photos.

I really think you guys are going to enjoy seeing their recipes and photos and I know I’m going to enjoy the camaraderie of the Yum of the Month challenges.

Strawberry Nutella Tart

Our first Yum of the Month challenge was all about fresh fruit. I knew right off the bat that I wanted to make something with strawberries because in my mind they are the prettiest fruit. Apparently a lot of other people love strawberries as much as me, because for several weeks in a row every time I went to the grocery store they were sold out of strawberries! I finally got a hold of some good ones and whipped up this easy strawberry tart. This tart starts off with a homemade sweet pastry crust. The filling is a super creamy and chocolatey no bake combination of cream cheese, nutella, and whipped topping. It’s then finished with a layer of fresh sliced strawberries.

Strawberry Nutella Tart

Tarts look like a lot of work, but they aren’t really. The hardest part of this strawberry chocolate tart is layering the strawberries to look pretty! Maybe that’s just the perfectionist in me sneaking out. The crust and filling can be made a day or so ahead of serving time, but it’s best not to put the strawberries on the top until just before serving this tart so they stay nice and fresh and don’t leak strawberry juice into the chocolate filling.

Be prepared for no leftovers when you make this one! Every time I take this strawberry nutella tart somewhere I come home with an empty plate.

Hi! Is whipped top the same as the frozen whipped cream you buy? the one you dethaw and whip together?

Jane, yes that’s exactly the right kind.

Everyone got so creative with their fruit ingredients! But I really love how you paired Nutella, cream cheese, and strawberries here! My husband and I just picked 14 lbs (!) of strawberries from a local field, this will be a great way to use up some of them! 🙂

Amy I love this tart and I just LOVE LOVE how easy it is! Isn’t easy tarts like, the best tarts? 😀 And I love the addition of cream cheese and almonds. I must definitely try your tart recipe next time!

You’re right – the pictures are amazing!! The tart looks so good — you may be a perfectionist but it sure pays off in the way you layered these strawberries! The other ‘yums of the month’ look good too. What a great idea!

What a gorgeous tart! I love the almonds in the crust. My mother loves strawberries and her birthday is coming up later this month. I’ll have to bake this for her!

Renee May 4, 2016 - 12:46 pm

This tart looks AMAZING!!! I don’t know if I’d want to eat it or just stare at it. Since you’ve stuffed it with cream cheese and nutella, it must taste as good as it looks so I’d probably eat it 😉

Holy crap.. I can’t even think right now, because all I can imagine is nutella IN MY MOUTH. And those strawberries.. wow. That sounds decadent, and I must have it!! Gorgeous photos by the way!

I would be pretty upset if my grocery store ran out of strawberries! I put them in my smoothies every morning. My mom would love this for Mother’s Day. Great combination!

Willow, when I was shopping this week I wanted to get more to make strawberry lemonade for a church dinner and they were completely out again! I was so frustrated.

OMG what a perfect combination — this tart is so pretty, too!
