I’m going to tell you a story.
Once upon a time there was a food blogger who (as per usual) decided to start her holiday baking a little too late. The house was filled with illness for the two weeks leading up to Christmas and so she had little time, and even less energy to prepare scrumptious treats for her family – and not to mention guests for her upcoming Christmas party. The day of the party had arrived and she was desperate for a quick dessert to serve to her party guests. Low and behold she discovered a lone package of puff pastry hidden in the freezer, and thankfully, before she had time to finish off the tub of Nutella she was devouring, she put two and two together and created this ah-mazing dessert!
The story is true, and so is the description of these decadent Nutella twists. In fact, they exceeded my expectations. These easy puff pastry Nutella twists were a show stopper at my Christmas party, and I’m not surprised. They’re flaky, chewy, buttery, and oh-so rich and decadent. And for the record, you can’t just eat one of them – just ask my party guests! A light dusting of icing sugar finishes off this quick and easy party-friendly dessert.
Note: These twists can be filled with substitutes for the Nutella however, the results may vary. I prepared these with jam, almond butter, and peanut butter combined with Nutella. If using jam, be sure to seal the twists as best as you can to avoid the jam seeping out from the sides. Almond and peanut butter are fantastic combinations with Nutella however, since they are much oilier than Nutella the result is much denser and less flaky. In my opinion, the Nutella had by far the best results!
