Have you ever had a chocolate croissant from Starbucks? Those are my absolute favorite! I also get one from another local coffee shop, and they are to die for. If you have ever researched how to make croissants, making them is no easy task. It’s time consuming and you have to make multiple layers. Instead of taking up time baking, you can spend time eating. This post is going to be the first of multiple series on crescents (croissants). With this 2-ingredient Nutella™ Crescents, it’s simple and delicious.
Crescent rolls are straight-forward. You simply follow the package directions by rolling. I thought spreading and rolling was by far the easiest recipe I could start with.
2-Ingredient Nutella™ Crescents
- 1 can Pillsbury Big & Flaky Crescent Rolls
- 1 jar Nutella™ Hazelnut Spread
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Open and unroll crescent rolls. Separate individual crescent rolls along perforations.
- Spread a small amount of Nutella™ in each crescent roll, then roll. Place onto parchment lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until light golden brown.
As you can see, I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper. I like to do this with just about everything I bake. It also allows me to pick up the parchment paper, transfer baked goods to counter, and reuse the baking sheet.
I’d also like to point out that I use about a spoonful of spread, and smear a light layer across the roll. You can add as much or as little spread as you would like!
I added powdered sugar, but that is completely optional! I think it makes the Nutella™ crescents look yummier. If you plan on eating these for breakfast, I totally understand skipping the powdered sugar (then again, I would do it for breakfast, too!).
Another thing to note, I used the Big & Flaky dough. You can use the original, but please account for the baking time difference. To make these Nutella™ Crescents exactly shown, use the Big & Flaky!
Wasn’t that simple?! These would be great for a brunch get-together or just for the family. What else would you like to see stuffed in these?
