Good Eats: Nutella Croissant Rolls

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
Powdered Sugar

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?

    I have a nutella cheesecake and nutella pot de creme on my dessert board. Haven’t tried them yet though. I made those nutella and fruit hand pie things that I remember you commenting on.
    We never had it in our house growing up, but a German girlfriend of mine ALWAYS had it, so I ate it every time I went over there.
    There is a jar in my cupboard right now. Now all I need is the tube of crescent rolls. I’m pinning to remind me!

    I am a latecomer to Nutella too! Funny, I posted about these croissants right away, too. :) We also like Nutella and banana sandwiches on whole wheat bread. Yummy. And my mom recently found an off-brand (Kroger) of Nutella that came in chunky.

    Don’t tell anyone but my favourite way of eating Nutella is with a spoon, straight out of the jar….divine!!!

    Yum! I think I discovered Nutella in high school, when a friend brought some, but I’m not sure. Could’ve been freshman year of college and a roommate bought it. Can’t wait to try this!

    OMG we love Nutella. We actually first tried it when living in Germany. Came back home, thought it was the end of our relationship with Nutella then I FOUND IT AT THE STORE! My favorite Nutella “dish” banana crepes spread with Nutella.

    1 cup of flour
    1 cup of milk
    1 egg
    1 banana sliced (thick or thin your choice)

    beat, heat pan, spray with non stick spray, use a ladle to pour batter onto hot pan and use the ladle to circle it outwards. drop some sliced banana pieces onto the cooking batter, turn over, cook other side…pull off, spread with Nutella, wrap and enjoy!

    YES PLEASE!!!! My niece got hooked at a very young age on Nutella when they lived in Germany; she’s 20 and still hooked. Perfect refreshment for a funeral service at church tomorrow…so glad I found your blog on DIY Showoff’s (I just re-did our computer room with Ikea Vika desktops, drawer units & shelves…love them!). Great blog!!!!!!

    I just popped these babies in the oven. You betcha-nutella-goodness I licked the knife. Fortunately, no tongue cuts.
    I saw your post a little while back on pinterest and now I’m getting around to them…. ohhhh nutella and pinterest – a match made in heaven. Thank you for your post!

    These look so good! Do you think they would turn out ok if I prepared them the night before, stored in fridge and cooked the following morning? I am thinking about taking them to my moms group for breakfast/brunch and would much easier prepared in advance. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Hi April, I’m not sure as I’ve never tried making them in advance. They really don’t take long to prepare. You only need to spread the nutella and then roll them up.

    Just happen to have two cans of rolls in fridge. Was wondering what I was going to do with them. Now I know! Thanks.

    Nutella is the absolute BEST!! I’ve been making these for years. I like to brush on an egg wash with a pastry brush then sprinkle with finely chopped pecans or almonds then bake..delish;). They do keep well made the night before. Just pop them in the oven to reheat a few min.
