Nutella Puff Pastry

So…I can’t consider these homemade. I didn’t make the puff pastry from scratch. I didn’t make the chocolate spread from scratch and furthermore, in my humble opinion, it’s not worth the time and effort to make puff pastries from scratch. Just buy the frozen puff pastries at your grocery store and call it good! BUT I did assemble and bake them 🙂

What I love about puff pastry desserts is the versatility in how they can be designed. All the different shapes and styles and added touches make puff pastries a fun, easy and truly beautiful dessert. I picked a basic shape for these pastries but if you look up different puff pastry shapes you will find some really pretty ones that are fairly easy to replicate. I lOVE nutella!!! but you can fill these with anything! I, personally would leave fruit for the outside as a finishing touch, but that’s because I don’t like the texture of cooked fruit in pastries.

These come out as a flaky, buttery, chocolaty treat!

 

INGREDIENTS:                    SERVES: 8

1 frozen puff pastry sheet (package will probably have two)

Small container of Nutella/Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

1 tbsp melted butter

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Allow your puff pastry to thaw in fridge for a bit then lay out on cutting board. Preheat oven to 375. Nead the seams together to make one big square.
  2. Spread nutella evenly across the pastry and then use pizza cutter to cut pastry into 8 triangles (or cut whatever way is needed to create the shape desired) n2
  3. Roll your triangle and place on a baking sheet that has been covered in parchment paper. Brush each pastry with melted butter. n3
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes or untill the pastry looks flaky and golden brown! Cool completely. n1

Tip: Puff pastries can be deceiving. You will think they are done when they are not. Trust me, wait until you see it rise and become flaky otherwise it will NOT taste as wonderful as it has the potential to taste.

 

That’s it! Enjoy ❤
