Nutella Berry Bruschetta for Two Peas & Their Pod

This Nutella Berry Bruschetta recipe is perfect for brunch, holiday, or a fresh, chocolate snack or dessert!

Nutella Berry Bruschetta

I first met Maria and Josh (Two Peas and Their Pod) last year at Evo ’11 and since then we’ve attended several blogging events together. It’s been an honor to get to know this couple (below in Park City this summer with Aggie and me and Maria) and actually, I kindof think of Josh and Maria as “family!”

Josh and Maria are expecting their first baby, a boy! He’s going to be the cutest little “sweet pea” and I can’t wait to meet him. I already sent Maria her gift through snail mail, but today I’m happy to participate in their shower from afar.

The recipe I prepared for today’s shower, one I fixed for my family earlier this week, is a recipe you’ll want to file away as a “favorite.” Especially if you love Nutella in your household as much as we do, it’s delicious and elegantly presentable at the same time!

My family loved the creamy combination of sweet berries and Nutella on a buttery crunchy slice of bread. It’s so fantastic, I’ll probably be making it for company … soon!

Blackberries are coming on strong right now, too. I’ve been picking them, eating them, baking with them, freezing them.

Here’s a big Congratulations to Josh and Maria

We are praying for your family!

We love your very much!

the Coughlin Family!

Bites of creamy Nutella chocolate with fresh berries on buttery, crunchy toast. Goodness gracious.


  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

  3. Spread Nutella on each piece of bread.
  4. Top with the berries and sprinkle with the nuts.
  5. Add a tiny leaf for garnishing. Optional: lightly sprinkle with sea salt.
