nutella pockets

This is a super quick post because it is a super quick recipe.

While playing with puff pastry and making char siu sou the other day, I had some pastry left and I wondered what to do with it.
I am a huge fan of Nutella, so I figured that chocolate pockets were the way to go since they are super fast, and well, super yummy.

I mean, how can one possibly go wrong with Nutella?

I took a sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry and cut 4 squares out of it. On each square, I placed a tablespoon of Nutella.
I used a pasrty brush to brush some egg wash on the edges.
Then I took one corner and folded the pastry into a triangle.
I used a fork to seal the edges.
And I egg washed the pastry.
They were baked.

And allowed to cool on the tray for 5-10 minutes before I cooled them completely on a wire rack.
Needless to say, these did not hang around for very long.

  1. Hi Diana,

    These Nutella pastries look so yum! Love this fast and easy to satisfy all Nutella cravings... I guess the next easiest way to fix Nutella craving is to eat Nutella by itself :p


  2. Diana, which are the best puff pastry brands in the market based on your experience?
