Ok, so I have another confession to make…I’d never even heard of nutella until a few years ago. I was at dinner with co-workers and someone ordered nutella pie. I asked, rather ignorantly, with my southern drawl (more Duke’s of Hazard, than Steel Magnolia) “What’s that”? My yankee co-worker looked at me sideways as if I had two heads and gave me a bite her dessert.
GOOD LAWD! Who’s been hiding this delicious hazelnut, chocolate goodness from me all my life? Is this something like escargot that you can only get in exotic markets? Oh, you can get it at Harris Teeter or even Walmart? Geez.
It’s probably a good thing, as I probably would have spent my college years on the couch watching Melrose Place with a big jar of nutella and a spoon yelling at Allison to get a backbone and wondering if people in the workforce really wore skirts as short as Amanda’s.
Anyhoot, once I found out about nutella, there was no turning back. I big, fat, puffy-heart, love it and I’m about to share with you one of my favorite (and super easy) treats, Nutella Croissant Rolls. There are only two ingredients, three if you’re feeling fancy.
1 package (8 count) Croissant Rolls
Preheat the oven to 375 according to package directions. Roll out your croissant rolls and separate. Spread with nutella.
Lick the knife, cut your tongue. Don’t care because it is nutella and it tastes. so. good. Roll the croissant, starting from the wide end to the pointy end.
Bake at 375 for between 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar (totally optional, but totally worth it). Eat yourself sick.
Anyone else a new-comer to nutella or any other seemingly common food? Do you have any favorite nutella recipes you want to share?
