Grilled Nutella Raspberry Sandwich

Grilled Nutella Raspberry Sandwich

I think Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday. Candy hearts, boxes of chocolate, flowers, cute Valentine cards-what’s not to love? Since calories from sugar don’t count on Valentine’s Day-I always eat my fair share of sugary sweets. One of my favorite treats is a Grilled Nutella and Raspberry Sandwich. I have been making and eating these sandwiches since I was a little girl.

These sandwiches are so easy to make. All you have to do is spread Nutella and raspberry jam on two slices of bread, grill to perfection, and serve warm. The Nutella and raspberry jam melt together to create the most delightful sandwich. To keep things festive, I cut out a heart shape in the middle of the sandwich. The Nutella and jam may ooze out the side, but that is all part of the fun.

Grilled Nutella and Raspberry Sandwiches are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Serve as dessert, a sweet snack, or even breakfast. Nutella for breakfast is allowed on Valentine’s Day, remember sugar calories don’t count:)

Grilled Nutella Raspberry Sandwich

Yield: 1 sandwich


2 slices bread
1 tablespoon soft butter
2 tablespoons Nutella
1 1/2 tablespoons raspberry jam


1. Butter the outside of both pieces of bread. Spread Nutella and raspberry jam on the inside of both bread slices. Sandwich together.

2. Heat a pan over medium heat. Place sandwich in the pan and grill for about two minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the sandwich and grill the other side for two minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.

3. If you would like to create a heart shaped sandwich-cut out the center of the sandwich, using a heart shaped cookie cutter.

    Did you say Nutella? Did you say raspberry jam? Looks like I’ll be making more than one of these. I’ll go wipe the drool off my chin now.
