Nutella is such a wonderful thing. I want to find the person that invented the delicious nutty spread & give them a giant kiss. It is guilty pleasure of mine. I have been known to just sit there with the jar & a spoon and indulge in the sweet treat right out of the jar. I also am a fan of the crescent roll. If you stuff a crescent with just about anything it is delicious. I am guessing I would even eat a dirty shoe if a crescent was rolled around it. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to couple two of my favorite foods .
A sheet of seamless crescent
1/4 cup of finely chopped hazelnuts
2 Tbsp of butter or margarine
1 Tbsp of brown sugar
1/4 cup of chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Unroll the sheet of crescent dough. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out crescent hearts for the top & bottom of your treats. Gather excess crescent & roll out with a rolling pin. Cut out more hearts until you have used most of the dough. Lay one heart down on an ungreased cookie sheet & generously scoop Nutella & spread in the middle following the heart shape & avoiding the edges. Place another heart over the first heart & Nutella. Pinch the edges. Do this until you use all of your dough hearts.
In a saucepan melt butter or margarine over low heat. Add brown sugar & stir until dissolved & then add hazelnuts. Make sure they are finely chopped. Mix until coated with butter & sugar.
In the middle of your formed crescent hearts, use a smaller heart cookie cutter & press in the center. Sprinkle nut mixture in the middle of the cookie cutter until in fills in the shape. Repeat with all formed crescent hearts. Bake for about 10-15 minute or until golden.
Melt chocolate in a bowl in the microwave. Heat it in 30 second intervals. Use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over your hearts & let cool.
I can’t believe I’ve never tried Nutella as I’ve heard and read so much good things about it. Just may have to get some this year for my Valentine’s treats!
I love the stuff. If you like those Ferrer Rochers, you will love Nutella.
We love both Nutella and Crescent Rolls, so this looks amazing. Will have to buy both when I am in the grocery store and try now. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks Janine. They were delicious. I hope you enjoy them.
These look and sound so good! I must try them!
I hope you do. Thanks for stopping by.
Those do look tempting. My son would enjoy these!
My daughter loved them of course because the Nutella has the chocolaty flavor.
I don’t personally care for Nutella but know enough about it to know that my brother and father would both love this recipe.
Not everyone does like it. It is one of my favorites though.
OMG, this looks so yummy!! (and pretty too!!)
Thanks Joy. Aren’t they though. Lol. I will make you some.
This looks so dangerously good!
I agree with Mitzi – these could be dangerously addictive! Thanks for linking to Snickerdoodle Sunday! Pinning so we can make these 🙂
I wish I had some of these cookies to eat right this instant. Yum! Thank you for linking up with recipe writers!
