Twist it, bake it, dip it, dunk it, taste it, smell it, quick – Nutell-it.
I’ve always wanted to write my own verse to Daft Punks Technologic. Checkin’ off that bucket list like it’s my job.
Guys, you’re gonna want to make these. They are sinfully delicious. But there’s something delightfully different about them. You’d think for a sweet pastry, one would need to make a sweet dough.
Nope. Think again.
Because I often find that chocolate is best suited with the not-so-sweet, this here, is pizza dough.
Spread with a generous amount of Nutella, baked coconut, and slivered/chopped almonds…these are like a baked Almond Joy. When Andy took a bite yesterday, he said, “girl these are stupid good.” Compliment accepted.
Not to mention, his love to Nutella is rising up there with: airplanes, Glorie, outer-space, Wipe-Out, Tom Hanks…ya know. Nutella.
Here’s 4 things you need.
- 1/2 pckg. Whole Foods refrigerated pizza dough
- 1/2 c. raw almonds (slivers or chopped)
- 1 c. unsweetened coconut (psst…bake coconut 5 min at 400 degrees. & leave oven on to preheat while you prep the rest)
- 1 c. Nutella
Then do this!
On how I formed the rolls: after I spread the chocolate and sprinkled with coconut and almonds, I sliced it about 4 ways, rolled each, and twisted them in the motion of how you ring out a wet washcloth. Does that make sense? Because I don’t know how else to explain it.
Welp. Here’s the good news. You can make them into whatever shape you want, and they will taste the same. Problem solved:)
BAKE at 400 degrees for 23 minutes. Make fun if you want, but it was the perfect time. 20’s not enough. 25’s too much.
Once they’re done baking, brush the tops with about 1 TBSP melted butter. mmmMMM.
They are easier to eat by hand…with a cup of coffee in the other hand, of course. The fork and knife thing was just for the fancy photo, but don’t waste your time on that stuff. Just pick it up and take a bite. Nutella-lovers, be happy.
