Ingredients

  • 1 roll Puff Pastry
  • 1/4 cup hazelnut spread (Nutella/more or less)
  • 8 pretzel sticks
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (brown or granulated, your choice)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C).  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out puff pastry and lightly flatten with a rolling pin.  Cut the dough into 16* pieces measuring 2 3/4 x 3 inches (7 x 8 cm). 
  • Place a teaspoon full of Nutella on only 8 of the pieces and spread evenly, cover each piece with the remaining 8 pieces, turn them vertically and make thin slits in the dough, leave approximately 1/4 - 1/3 inch (1/2 - 3/4 cm) boarder on the top.
  • Gently wrap the dough around the top of pretzel stick, place on prepared cooke sheet and gently spread the slits.  Sprinkle with sugar and bake for approximately 15 - 20 minutes.  Let cool completely before serving. Enjoy.

*This of course depends on how large your puff pastry sheet is, you may get more or less squares.
