It’s become a tradition around here that each year just before New Year’s Eve, I share a new champagne recipe with you all. I know, I know – champagne for NYE is a cliché, but it’s for good reason! If you consume alcohol, chances are you toast with some bubbly on the last night of the year.
This year, I present you with Nutella Champagne Dip!
This dip isn’t going to get you tipsy – not even if you ate the whole thing in one sitting (which I do notrecommend unless you want to roll yourself down the hall to bed). And chances are you probably wouldn’t even know it has champagne in it.
Stick with me here.
What is the texture like?
The champagne doesn’t give it a boozy flavor, but it does give it a fluffier texture and combines with the cream cheese for a delightful tangy kick. The texture is super creamy, fluffy, and addictive. Sorrynotsorry.
I recommend putting out half of what you made and leaving the rest in the fridge because then your guests will think there’s only half as much and pace themselves, and then you’ll have another half in the fridge just for you!

What to serve with Nutella champagne dip
If you’re looking to serve this dip with fruit, it pairs perfectly with strawberries, apples, and oranges. You could also go the route of sweet and crunchy graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers or Nilla wafers.
But my personal favorite is pretzels. We all know how much I love sweet and salty together, but there’s something about this dip and pretzels in particular that’s next level.
I also recommend adding a pinch of gold sprinkles to the top before serving. It just gives it a cute little festive garnish, and I’m a strong believer that NYE’s official color is gold.
This is one of the last treats I brought to my office before my last day, and it was a resounding success. One of the guys said, “It’s like Nutella… only better.”
He is notwrong.
So don’t forget my tip to hide store half the dip in the fridge, or maybe just double the batch… and still store half in the fridge.
I look forward to what 2018 has to bring, and hope it has wonderful things in store for you as well – Happy New Year!
