I often serve these bite-sized flaky morsels to those unexpected “we are just going to pop in” guests. Not only are they tasty but quick to make.

Ingredients (makes 12 croissants)

  • 3 sheets Puff pastry, frozen
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Icing sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Allow pastry to thaw slightly. Place pastry on a cutting board and cut each square in half and then cut each rectangle diagonally so you have 4 right-angled triangles. Repeat the same way with the other two sheets so you have 12 triangles in total.
  3. Place a teaspoon of Nutella in the middle of the widest end (not the diagonal) of each triangle and brush the remaining tail with beaten egg.
  4. Starting at the wider end,(not the diagonal) roll each triangle up to the very tip. Place each croissant seam-side down so that the tip of the triangle is tucked under the rolled croissant. Bend a curve in each pastry.
  5. Place on baking tray and brush with beaten egg.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  7. Allow to cool slightly & dust with icing sugar


You could use substitute choc bits or jam in place of Nutella.

  • With every Nutella recipe I find, I crave it more and more. These just keep getting better and I love puff pastry, and this sounds like a simple recipe.


  • We don’t use Nutella but make our own healthier version and also use that for chocolate croissants & puff pastry flowers


  • oh wow these sound just a little bit delish – thank goodness they are mini versions they might not be so good for my waistline! – but it thanks you for sharing :)


  • too easy – they sound yum


  • Oh my gosh. Yum, yum, yum. (-:


  • I’m not a Nutella fan, but know many fans I can share this with.


  • OMG too easy!!!!!!!!!!!! Nutella and crossants!


  • When you would use a healthy raw chocolate spread and skip the icing sugar, it would become a bit more healthy.


  • sounds yummy…. not good on the diet though :)


  • Love this recipe!


  • what is there not to love about this recipe!?


  • Mouth watering. Thanks for sharing.
