Nutella is a tasty treat. So tasty you might wish you could sprinkle it all over everything. With a little maltodextrin, you can.
Maltodextrin is a starch and food additive that’s used to thicken a lot of commercial food products. Hikers also use it to make messy foods easier to transport. Over at Instructables, user Scottbus wanted to take his snacks and desserts to the next level, so he created his own powdered Nutella he could sprinkle on anything.
Combine some maltodextrin with some Nutella at a ratio of 60/40 and it will dry out to a crumbly powdered form. Now you can sprinkle it on ice cream, baked goods and even peanut butter sandwiches.
Keep in mind, the powdered version of Nutella isn’t any healthier than regular Nutella. Scottbus suggests that you use maltodextrin made from tapioca because it’s non-GMO and gluten-free. To learn more, you can find the complete instructions at the link below.
