Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling

Kinder Bueno is a delightful chocolate and hazelnut snack which is marketed at kids ("kinder" is German for children), but is enjoyed by adults in equal measure. Part of this reason is its light chocolate wafer shell, not too cloying for an adult palate. Once you break into that shell, you are rewarded with a creamy hazelnut filling which is sweet, but still fluffy enough to not make you wince at the calories. This oneHOWTO copycat version of homemade Kinder Bueno filling is easy to make (much easier than scooping out individual Kinder Bueno pieces with a tiny spoon) and can be used in a range of different desserts.

Steps to follow to make this recipe:

We'll start our homemade Kinder Bueno filling by arranging the ingredients. You could make an alternate version with milk or dark chocolate, but it won't be like the kinder original. Besides, we already have lots of other chocolate recipes to choose from like some delicious chunky Australian rocky road.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 1

You will need a blender or food processor for this recipe, trying to finely chop or mash by hand will be very difficult. Put the hazelnuts and the sugar in the processor and process for a few minutes until you get a creamy paste, similar to how you would make a homemade peanut butter.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 2

Continue our homemade Kinder Bueno filling by adding the cornstarch, vanilla essence and salt. Slowly process on a low setting and add the oil little by little.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 3

Once you have an even consistency, add the white chocolate and pour the milk in the same way you added the oil.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 4

Keep processing until you get a thick creamy paste, just as you would have with the filling for a real Kinder Bueno.

Homemade Kinder Bueno Filling - Step 5

Once your homemade Kinder Bueno filling is ready, you can use it to fill pretty much whatever you like. You can use it as a spread for a sponge cake sandwich or even stuff it into chocolates like these delicious chocolate bonbons.

What did you think of this recipe?
Hi, I'm looking to use this as a filling for a 3 or 4 layer cake. Will I have to increase the measurements or will this amount be sufficient? Thank you

Hi Debbie, we would say double them just to be on the safe side. Better to have too much than not enough.

Hello it seems very good and very simple recipe. I really want to try it but I'm in Malta and we use the metric system i.e grams, millilitres etc. Would it be possible to post the measurments in metric aswell please? Thankyou for this recipe, the result seems amazing.
Hi, is the cornstarch a powder or liquid please?
OneHowTo Editor
Starts as a powder, you make it into a liquid with water!

I'm thinking of adding this into kinder Bueno no bake cheesecake. Can share your thoughts?
OneHowTo Editor
Sounds delicious Tasha, we can't see why it wouldn't work a treat!
What is a dessert spoon of cornstarch? Is that a like a teaspoon? Other then that this looks so easy and I'll be making it with my kids this summer

Hi Jennifer,

No it is slightly larger than a tablespoon. However, there will be a little bit of trial and error to get the consistency you desire. For this reason, we recommend using a little less if you are not sure and then adding more as a slurry (cornstarch and a little water) later.
How thick is the consistency of this cream? Is it suitable to put in between two cookies (similar to a jam shortbread sandwich)? If not, what would you reccomend to alter the recipe in order to achieve a thicker consistency that will not drip.
OneHowTo Editor
Hi JJ,

It should be thick and can be used as a filling between two cookies. If not, try adding a little more cornstarch as a thickening agent.

Thanks so much for this! How long can this last for? Is there a way this can be kept for months?
OneHowTo Editor
Hi Nick
This recipe (because it contains dairy) will only last a couple of days. We recommend you keep it in the fridge for it to last longer.
Alternatively, once you make it, you can keep it in the freeezer for it to last longer.
Magdaline Makris

It sounds like a super yummy recipe but you don't have any measurements and for someone who is doing this for the first time, it will be very difficult. Could you please add the measurements.
OneHowTo Editor
Hi Magdaline,

The measurements are in the little box between the main picture and the main body of text (after the introduction). Hope this helps!
