Nutella Puff Pastries

I've been wanting to make a puff pastry dessert for a while now after seeing some cool recipes on my Instagram feed lately. People tend to stuff puff pastry with just about anything these days, and I wanted to give it a go! That's actually how I discovered these babies. I saw something similar on Instagram, but decided to search for other puff pastry recipes and found this one. It had my attention (and mouth watering) at the word hazelnut, so I decided to try it out.

This recipe is so incredibly simple. This may be one of the easiest desserts I ever made. Four ingredients, no crazy baking methods, nothing complicated. And they bake in about 15 minutes. Sweet, delicious simplicity.

These puffs are flaky, buttery, and filled with a smooth, yummy hazelnut spread. This is a perfect treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee, or to have as a little afternoon snack, or for dessert after dinner. So I guess what I'm saying is, in my opinion, you can eat these at any time of day. They're also great to bake and bring to a gathering, or to drop off to a friend to bring a smile to their face (and to get them out of the house so you don't eat every single one. It's very tempting). I recommend these if you're looking for something quick and easy, if you love hazelnut spread like I do, and if you want to enjoy a delicious puff pastry.

The Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Servings: About 10

Here's What You Need:

  • 1 package prepared puff pastry (or make your own!)

  • ¾ cup hazelnut spread (Nutella or another brand)

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 Tbsp confectionery sugar

Here's What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.

  2. Unwrap the thawed, prepared puff pastries. On a clean counter or cutting board, gently roll both sheets out a bit using a rolling pin (this will give you an extra puff pastry or two out of the batch). Try to make both pastry sheets similar in size and don't roll them out too thin. 

  3. Spread the hazelnut spread evenly over every corner of one of the puff pastry sheets. Be sure to spread it all the way to all the edges. Gently place the other puff pastry sheet over the hazelnut spread. Line the corners up.

  4. Using a pizza cutter, carefully cut even 1/2 inch strips into the sandwiched pastries.

  5. Twist the strips one at a time. Place them on a parchment lined cooking sheet and roll them into a swirl.

  6. Crack the eggs in a small bowl and whisk well. Brush the pastries generously with the egg wash. The more egg, the more golden brown they will be!

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and flaky. 

  8. Let them cool for a few minutes and dust them with the powdered sugar. Enjoy right away for the ultimate pastry experience.


  • You can find puff pastry in the frozen dessert section, pastries need to be thawed according to the package.

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days on the counter.

  • These taste delicious with a cup of coffee!
