My son is obsessed with Nutella! If you follow our Instagram stories, you know he eats a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich almost every day! Which is why I knew he’d love these Easy Nuttela Croissants. They’re the perfect afterschool snack or after-dinner treat.
These Easy Nutella Croissants are so easy and delicious that you’ll be thanking me all day. I paired them with a side of fresh fruit and served them as an afterschool snack and my 7-year-old just loved them- we both did!
All you need is a few ingredients you probably already have in your pantry and 1 you may not. Puff Pastry- you can find it at most local grocery stores in the freezer section. Although be careful- I could not find it at Walmart. When you’re ready to make these Easy Nutella Croissants, be sure to thaw the puff pastry about 1 hour ahead of time.

Once the puff pastry is thawed, preheat your oven to 400° and then remove the puff pastry from the packaging. Place it on a lightly flour-dusted cutting board. Open easily and roll out to desired thickness. Cut it down the center with a pizza cutter and then again across 2-3 times, depending on how large you want your croissants. Once you have created 6-8 squares, you want to cut each square diagonally to make triangles so cut from the top left corner of the square to the bottom right.

Once you made all your triangles, add a small dollop of Nutella on the larger side of the triangle. Then roll each one up starting n the larger side. Then, bend slightly to form a croissant shape. Transfer each to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Hand beat 1 egg and brush each croissant. Place in the oven to bake for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Once they are cooled, sprinkle them with powdered sugar and enjoy!

- Thaw puff pastry a minimum of 1 hour prior to using. If you’re unable to thaw prior to use, defrost in the microwave. Unwrap the dough from plastic and then wrap it in a paper towel. Place in the microwave for 15 seconds on high. Turn and heat for another 15 seconds. If it’s still not ready, heat in 5-second increments until thawed enough to fully unwrap the dough.
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Spread 1-2 tsp of flour onto a cutting board. Not too much- you don’t want to dry out the dough or it will be tough after baking.
Carefully unfold the puff pastry and roll it out to desired thickness.
- Using a pizza cutter, cut the puff pastry down the middle and then across 2 or 3 times to make 6 larger squares or 8 smaller squares. I cut across 2 times and made 6 squares but some were uneven. Then cut each square diagonally from the top corner to the bottom corner to make 2 triangles in each square.
- Place a dollop of Nutella on the larger end of the triangle. Continue this with each triangle you made.
- From the larger end, roll up and then slightly bend to form a croissant.
- Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Beat 1 egg by hand and then lightly brush on top of each croissant.
- Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.
- Once finished, remove and place on a cooling rack.
- Once the croissants have cooled, add powdered sugar. Enjoy!
Note: These croissants should be eaten within a few hours of baking. Otherwise, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat in a toaster oven or air fryer.
These Easy Nutella Croissants make great little snacks for kids- I put them in my son’s school lunch all the time.
