  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1/2 cup Nutella room temperature
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375° Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • Evenly spread the Nutella on each puff pastry sheet. Sprinkle coarsely chopped hazelnuts over one sheet.
  • Fold the puff pastry sheet without hazelnuts over the other sheet. The Nutella sides should now face each other.
  • Cut the layered sheet lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Gently twist each strip several times and roll the twisted pastry into a coil. Place on the prepared baking sheet and tuck the end of the twist under the coil.
  • Brush each twist with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar.
  • Bake the twists for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly golden.
