Treat your loved one to these awesome flaky treats that are super easy to make.

Nutella Puff Pastry Swirls

Ingredients

  • 2 pre-rolled puff pastry sheets, easily available in specialist baking stores and online
  • 2 tbsp chocolate and hazelnut Nutella spread
  • 1 egg
  • Baking/butter paper
  • Butter for greasing baking tray and baking/butter paper

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • While the oven is pre-heating, take one of the pastry sheets and spread it out.
    Spread a thin but uniform layer of the Nutella on it.
  • Place the second pastry sheet on top of the first sheet.
    Gently keep patting the sheet to flatten both sheets into a kind of a sandwich and seal the edges.
    Using a pizza cutter, cut vertical, 10-14 inch strips, along the longer edges of the pastry sheet.
    Hold the sealed edge and twist each strip. Roll it into a swirl.
  • Grease the tray and then line the tray with the baking paper and grease.
    Place each swirl on the baking tray, at least 1 inch apart.
  • Whisk the egg and using a pastry brush, coat the swirls generously with the whisked egg mixture.
  • Bake the swirls in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Take out of the oven and let it cool on a rack, before serving it with a cup of hot chocolate. These swirls can be had for breakfast or as a dessert.
