Bless up for store-bought puff pastry! A single sheet provides so many opportunities for delicious things, from sweet to savory. This is my recipe for Nutella-filled puff pastry twists that take no time to make, look cute AF, and obviously taste great because anything with Nutella and butter will always taste great.
If you’ve never worked with or even bought puff pastry before, all good! Here are some notes on what to do:
- Puff pastry is available in the frozen section alongside phyllo dough and pie crusts. You canNOT substitute those things for puff pastry though.
- Because puff pastry has so much butter in it, you want it to be as cold as possible when using it. Keep in the freezer, and move it to the fridge one day before you plan on cooking.
- If the puff becomes unwieldy to handle because it goes soft, stick it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to firm up. Do this as many times as you need to do keep it cold!
- You can make these Nutella puff pastry twists ahead of time and stick them in the freezer until you’re ready to bake. Remove from freezer, brush with the honey wash, and bake! No need to defrost them, but bake time will be a few minutes longer.
My IGTV reviews these tips along with the demo of how to make these. Puff pastry seems to be available in stores the last I checked, so hopefully you can find yourself some and make these!
