Nutella Croissants

As everyone knows it is Valentines day on Saturday.. if you hadn’t already guessed after being bombarded with all  adverts. It’s slightly sickening.

I’m not always a great believer in giving one day to show someone how you feel about them. That should be done every day of the year! So this year I thought why not do something a little more personal.

WARNING – It is very cheap and very delicious.

This recipe is stolen from another blog that I read but I thought it was too tempting to turn down. So I give my full credit to ‘The Londoner’.

All you need is:

Jus Rol Croissant pastry

Nutella

Crushed hazelnuts

Berries – strawberries/raspberries

*make sure you buy the actual croissant pastry in the tinned tube.

Pre heat that oven to 200 degrees and leave it to heat up.

Take your croissant tin and pull the red tab until it pops open. The pastry is compressed inside so it will give a little pop.

The pastry is already cut for you, so just pull apart your triangles and lay them out in front of you.

There should be 6 of them. Lay the top of the triangle away from you. Then load it up with your filling.

You can go as thin or as thick as you want, but if you want them more chocolatey then spread it all over. Remember that they will need to be rolled up though.

There is plenty of other amazing fillings you can add such as jam, butter, almond icing, lemon curd, fruit – anything you fancy!!

Then sprinkle on your nuts.

Finally comes the rolling. Keep it tight and in line with the point at the end.

Once that is done, pop them in the oven. They are literally as easy as that! It’s a cheat on making homemade pastry but also very hard to get right. Too much faffing around.

Give them 10-15 minutes, but keep checking them.

When they are a nice golden colour take them out and leave them to cool for a bit.

As a finishing touch you can serve them with raspberries or strawberries. It leaves a bitter sweet taste in your mouth. And one that you will be craving even after you have finished.

This was my first run through and they went down a treat!

Don’t be fooled though, you can only make 6 of these bad boys from one tin. I would advise to buy two tins of the pastry because you’ll be craving them for days after.
