Easy Nutella Crescent Rolls

These nutella crescent rolls are so easy, you will want to make them every day! With only 3 ingredients and ready in under 20 minutes, this recipe is a keeper.

Easy Nutella Crescent Rolls

Today, one of my students told me that they have never tried Nutella.

Never tried Nutella??? What is this craziness?? To be fair, she just moved to Canada from China, and she claims that they don't sell it there. But from google searching this question, it seems like they actually do sell Nutella, but I'm sure it's not as beloved as it is here.

So for her first Nutella initiation, I will not only bring a jar to class, but I will bake her these super easy Nutella crescent rolls.

But before you go on and tell me how great a teacher I am (although I truly never get tired of hearing it ) I need to tell you just how easy these crescent rolls are to make!!

First, you start with a can of refrigerated crescent rolls. I use the pillsbury crescent rolls, but I am sure any one brand works fine. I know, not too sexy now right? But then you roll them out, slather them in Nutella, bake 'em in the oven and BAM! It goes from looking like this:

(Please ignore the first 4 crescent rolls. They were my experimental rolling phase).

To looking like THIS:

(Even my experimental crescent rolling technique is looking pretty good. Sort of..)

And if you really want to, sprinkle some icing sugar on top! But that is always optional. If you exclude the icing sugar, this is a 2 ingredient recipe which is ready in under 20 minutes. Which means that I can make it in the morning while getting ready and STILL look like the best teacher ever.

Maybe I should make another batch. Just in case I get hungry on the way.

  1. I still think you're the best teacher ever. These look absolutely fabulous!!


  2. Mmmm you certainly ARE an amazing teacher Cathleen!
    Yesterday I had friends over for Norwegian waffles, and we went through nearly a jar of nutella! These crescent rolls sound amazing! I hope your student liked them :) x

    1. PS Like I mentioned to you on my blog, if you need someone to translate your farmor's cook book, I'd be happy to help! Danish and Norwegian is almost identical written, less so verbally though :) My e-mail address is: juskho@gmail.com

  3. You know what Cathleen, I too have never tried Nutella! (I know) and I don't have the excuse of living in China where it may be more difficult to source- I see it all the time in our supermarket and yet have never picked up a jar! Looking at these scrummy looking crescents I think that's about to change! Best teacher 2016 nomination! ;-)

  5. That is crazy! I could eat these morning, noon, and night.
