Nutella Crescents with Cinnamon Walnut Crumble

Crescent rolls, spread with Nutella, a little cinnamon sugar and finely minced walnuts. Quick. Easy. Heavenly.

Nutella Crescents

What a wonderful way to indulge in Nutella - wrapped in a sweet crescent. Tasty and really simple too - you will LOVE these!


You just need some Nutella, cinnamon sugar mix, pulverized walnuts (or your choice of another nut) and a tube of good ole crescent rolls.


Unroll the crescents.


Spread each triangle with a bit of the Nutella.


Next you'll want the cinnamon sugar. I keep some cinnamon and sugar mixed up in an old spice jar just so I have an excuse to sprinkle some on some buttered toast - yum!


Sprinkle that generously over the Nutella. If you don't want to do cinnamon, just sprinkle with some powdered, granulated or even brown sugar. Remember that you're aiming for sweetness since the crescent rolls are not sweet.


I always keep a variety of nuts in my freezer, so I just took a couple handfuls of walnuts and broke them up in the food processor. Just pulse them though - you don't want to end up with walnut butter!


Sprinkle the nuts on top of the cinnamon sugar and Nutella. Chopped pecans would be excellent too, but my hand found the walnuts first, so that's what I used.


Then just roll up the crescents. I never have been very good at rolling these perfect. Oh, who cares anyway!


Doesn't that look good already?


Line 'em up on a parchment covered baking pan.


I just want to snatch one up and eat it raw! But don't. Bake them at 375 degrees F for about 11 or 12 minutes or until lightly golden.


Let them cool, drizzle with some melted chocolate and what the heck, give it a sprinkling of powdered sugar!


And do your best not to eat every single one of them!

  11. Kristen, trust me. You CAN make these. There is absolutely nothin' to it!! All you gotta do is unroll the dough, put that stuff on it and roll 'em up. That's it!! Give it a try, won't you?

    Hi Dana!! Welcome and thanks for stoppin' by and sayin' hello!!! If you like chocolate, you'll probably like Nutella - I don't even taste the hazelnut in there, only chocolate. Think chocolate in a creamy peanut butter like form. It is delicious on biscuits - sort of like chocolate gravy!

  23. This is true! I have tried these with pie crust before and it is pretty good. The crescents are a little more soft and puffy than the pastry crust, but let me know what you think about this on the homemade pie crust!

  31. My brother is home from college in California and I LOVE baking for him. :D Unfortunately, he works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a construction company, so I often can't bake something quick enough. This is a perfect compromise (and we LOVE Nutella). I might even be nice and pack a few extra for his coworkers. Besides, my brother promised to help me on my West Coast swing in exchange for baking... and I can tell you right now, I'll be dancing in no time! Much love! God bless.
