I can still remember the first time I had Nutella when I was younger and how much it changed my life. At that moment, I still didn’t know exactly what it was I just knew I wanted to eat the entire jar by the spoonful. That may not be the best thing for me to do, so I figured I’d just put it on anything and everything that I could. Today I want to share with you one of my most favorite and easiest treats to make with Nutella. I had seen this recipe a couple times and when I finally tried it, it became an instant favorite in our house. I’m not even joking when I say I probably made it three times a week for two months straight before we couldn’t eat anymore. So grab a jar and let’s get to it!
All you need is:
~1 can of crescent rolls
As with any recipe, go ahead and preheat the oven to 375° or whatever the instructions say on your crescent roll package. Any crescent rolls will work, my favorite are the flaky butter. They were all out at my grocery store, so I ended up with these 90 calorie ones. Like that’s going to make a difference, ha!
Open the crescent rolls into their separate pieces and lay them out on a cutting board. Spread the nutella however thin or thick you would like on each triangle so it looks like you have some kind of chocolate pizza special. I usually like to spread it on more thick to prevent them from being dry after baking.
Roll them up, starting with the bigger end first, and place them onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. The parchment paper is obviously optional, but it makes the cleaning process a billion times easier. Bake them in the oven for approximately 9 minutes or until they’re just lightly golden brown. It’s important that you don’t leave them in any longer because then the nutella will start to burn and they won’t be all gooey on the inside, which is the best part!
To make sure it sticks, sprinkle them with however much cinnamon sugar you’d like as soon as they come out of the oven. Again, for easier clean up, you want to do this before you take them off of the parchment paper. Now you’re ready to serve them on a plate and enjoy them while they’re still warm.
These are so delicious and are always gone in no time! They’re also really good without the cinnamon sugar and I’ve been trying to think of other things I could top them with instead. This is one of the easiest snack recipes there are. I love it because not only do they taste amazing, but it takes very little effort and time. If you give these a try, let me know what you think! I’d also love any suggestions you can think of for alternative toppings! Hope you have a fantastic day :)
