Salted Nutella Croissants
Need I say more? These are so yummy you won't believe it and even better - they're super easy to whip up. Nutella has become a staple in our house of late and I absolutely love chocolate croissants so combining the two was just a matter of time for me.
There's lots of recipes floating around that use store bought puff pastry as a quick way to make sweet and savory croissants but there's not much to it; here's what I used:
1 sheet of Puff Pastry, bought at Trader Joe's
1 egg, beaten
Pink Crystal Salt, in a grinder also from Traders
I put a little flour on my board and rolled out the pastry about an inch out on each side then cut it into thirds, those thirds in half then the halves on the diagonal to make 12 small triangles.
I topped each triangle with about a teaspoon of Nutella at the bottom.
Then I rolled them up into little croissants and brushed them with beaten egg.
A few grinds of pink salt to get some chunky crystals on the tops.
Then just baked them at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Glorious, hazelnutty, chocolatey, buttery bready, slightly salty deliciousness....
You could probably eat all of these on your own but....share the love and invite someone special over to share them with because they're that delicious!
