If you have never had Nutella before, then you will either love or hate it. To quickly describe it, Nutella combines hazelnuts and cocoa in a sweetened spread. Depending on where you live, you should be able to buy this at your local supermarket or online from places such as Amazon.
Adjusting the Nutella Filling
There are plenty of extra ingredients that you can add in with Nutella. My favorite is chopped hazelnuts, but below are some other alternatives.
Raspberries go very nicely with the flavors of Nutella. Add roughly half a cup of raspberries over the top of the Nutella. Be careful as it will add a bit more fluid to the scrolls, which might cause them to go slightly soggy.
Another fruit that goes excellent with Nutella is banana. Simply add some slices of banana to the scrolls before you roll them. Alternatively, you can mash the banana and spread it over the puff pastry.

Nutella Scrolls Recipe
- 1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
- ½ cup Nutella
- ½ cup hazelnuts, chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- Before we get started, preheat an oven to 220°C (425°F).
- Spread the Nutella across the puff pastry, leave roughly a 1 cm (0.4 inch) gap at one end of the pastry.
- Sprinkle the hazelnuts across the Nutella.
- Now using a pastry brush, brush some egg across the gap that we left on the pastry.
- Roll the pastry up, starting from the end opposite to the egg. Try and get it as tight as possible without forcing the filling out of the sides.
- Now slice the roll into about ten pieces.
- Next, place the scrolls onto a lined oven tray.
- Place into the preheated oven and cook for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and place onto a cooling rack.
- Serve & Enjoy.
- When it comes to cutting the roll into slices, try not to push down hard as this will deform the roll. Using a super sharp knife will help prevent the need to push down on the roll too much.
- If you clean your knife after every cut, this will prevent dirty cuts as Nutella tends to stick to the knife easily.
- An important thing to remember is if you are using frozen puff pastry, make sure you get it out of the freezer ahead of time. Allow the pastry to completely defrost before trying to roll it up. Otherwise, you may find it will crack and break.
