Depending on how tonight’s dinner pans out, I may have two recipes this week! This first one though is really simple, incorporates chocolate into breakfast, and finally gave me a reason to try nutella.
I found the recipe HERE for Cinnamon-Nutella Croissants and I instantly added the easy ingredients to my grocery shopping list.
Easy right?! Sugar, cinnamon, croissant rolls, one egg and my new favorite, nutella.
I have always heard mixed reviews of nutella and frankly, never really had a reason to buy it. I love chocolate but a chocolate hazelnut spread was never really anything I thought I needed before. But how wrong I was! Now I’m searching for other recipes that I can use it in as I can’t bring myself to total shame by eating it by the spoonful (although as delicious as it is, I could!). So if you have any recipes incorporating this new love of mine, please share!
You simply roll out the croissant pieces on a baking pan. Mix together some cinnamon and sugar and beat the egg.
Put a spoonful of nutella in the wide-end of the croissant piece and roll up like you would normally.
Add just a bit of water to your beaten egg and brush it onto the rolled up croissant.
Then sprinkle each piece with the cinnamon-sugar.
And in less than 15 minutes of baking time, you have a delicious warm, slightly gooey breakfast treat.
I plan on making these again while my 15 year old cousin is visiting me in Providence. They just seem so perfect for the holidays!
