Nutella Twists and Palmiers for World Nutella Day 2019

Nutella twists and palmiers on eatlivetravelwrite.comHappy “World Nutella Day ! Yup, it’s a thing! Originally created by Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso, World Nutella Day is a day to celebrate, get creative with, and most importantly, eat Nutella.  In 2015, Sara transferred World Nutella® Day to Ferrero (the makers of Nutella®) to help it live on and grow for years to come.

World Nutella Day on eatlivetravelwrite.comIt’s the 13th iteration of this auspicious day and my 10th year participating.

In 2010 I made a Nutella cheesecake, in 2011 I made Nutella lamingtons, in 2012 I went French with Nutella macarons craquelés,  in 2013, I made Nutella truffle pops. in 2014 I made a flourless hazelnut-chocolate Nutella-inspired cake, in 2015 I made a chocolate-hazelnut smoothie in 2016, I made Nutella éclairs, in 2017 I made Nutella pots de crème, and in 2018 I made Chocolate -Hazelnut Financiers.

This year, I’ve gone simple with two Nutella-based sweet treats that come together in no time and look like they took you way longer (my favourite kind of recipe!). Store-bought puff pastry is your friend here and if you’ve got a stash in the freezer, you can make fancy looking French-ish treats – bâtons (twists) and Palmiers – that will have everyone talking. Using just a few ingredients you – and your kids! – can make these pretty, tasty treats together to celebrate everyone’s favourite spread!

Yield: 10 twists, 20 palmiers

Easy puff pastry Nutella twists and palmiers.
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Chill time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 13 minutes

Ingredients

For the Nutella twists

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (approx 10-inch x 10-inch), thawed but chilled
  • approx 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

for the Nutella palmiers

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (approx 10-inch x 10-inch), thawed but chilled
  • approx 1/3 cup Nutella

Instructions

Make the Nutella twists:

  1. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface.
  2. Spread the Nutella on one half of the pastry, stopping about 1/4 inch from the edges.
  3. Fold the top portion of the dough over the bottom and, using a pizza cutter (or knife), with a ruler as a guide, cut the pastry from top to bottom into strips about 1 inch wide.
  4. Carefully transfer the batons to one of the baking sheets and twist them in opposite directions, holding the end of each baton as you do.
  5. Lightly beat the egg with a splash of cold water and brush just the tops of the strips with this egg wash. Chill again until you are ready to bake them

Make the palmiers:

  1. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface.
  2. Spread the Nutella over the entire surface of the pastry, stopping about 1/4 inch from the edges.
  3. Roll one edge of the pastry into the centre then roll the other edge in to meet it.
  4. Roll up the pastry log in parchment or plastic wrap and chill for approx 30 minutes (this will make it easier to slice).

Bake the twists and the palmiers

  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
  2. Remove the palmier log from the fridge and slice into approximately 20 pieces (1/2-inch thick). Place cut side down on the parchment-lined baking tray.
  3. Remove the twists from the fridge
  4. Bake palmiers and twists for 15-18 minutes until golden brown and puffed,
  5. Remove trays from oven and place on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
  6. Twists and palmiers will keep at room temperature in airtight containers for 3-4 days.
