Ahhhh yes, Nutella! This hazelnut and chocolate spread is essentially magic in a bottle and one of the greatest things ever created. If you are fan, you will wholeheartedly agree!
If you love this spread like I do, then you know how quickly bottles have to be replaced, as everyone has to get their Nutella fix.
If you ended up on the page, you might have a question or wondering if it is possible to store Nutella in the freezer for use at a later date? While the Ferreor has stated that the Chocolate & Hazelnut spread can last 12 months after opening , it is still possible to freeze Nutella and we are going to show you how below.
How to Freeze Nutella?
Freezing Nutella is quiet easy and there are 2 options available, depending on if you have an opened or unopened bottle of the spread.
Freezing an Unopened Bottle of Nutella
If you have an unopened bottle that you would like to preserve, then getting it ready for the freezer is quite simple
- If you want, take a market and write the date you placed it in the freezer, so you can have an idea as to how long it has been sitting there.
- Take the unopened Nutella bottle and place it in the freezer
- When ready to use, take out and let thaw out.
Freezing an Opened Bottle of Nutella
For whatever reason you need to store Nutella in the freezer and you have an unopened bottle, you could either keep it in the bottle or transfer it into different containers. Having it in different containers can allow you to thaw out what you need vs thawing out the whole bottle.
- Close unopened bottle tightly and place in a freezer safe bag or container.
- If you want
Thawing It Out
When you are ready to use your chocolate/hazelnut spread, defrosting the bottles is quick and easy. All you need to is let it sit at room temperature for a couple of hours.
Once it is fully thawed out, you should stir the spread around before use. Stirring it will allow it to reconstitute and have the same consistency like when you first put it in.
