A scrumptious four-ingredient Nutella Christmas tree with puff pastry, a Nutella centre, and a snowy dusting of sugar. 

Say hiya to one of many best bakes which you can presumably make this Christmas season…  my Nutella Christmas Tree! It’s solely 4 substances, and it’s all the time a showstopper on the festive desk. 

Nutella Bakes

So in a little bit of a shocker, that is my first new Nutella bake in over two years! I couldn’t fairly consider it after I realised, as a result of I simply adore Nutella?! Actually – how has it been two years?!

Christmas appeared the best time to deliver again the chocolate hazelnut unfold goodness although and I’m completely in love. I like to stuff Nutella into no matter I can together with my Nutella stuffed cookies, Nutella ice cream, and even my Nutella rocky street

I discover within the colder climate consuming one thing completely lined in a gooey chocolate unfold does make every little thing higher, so right here you go. 

Christmas Tree

So, as you may see, we went for the Christmas tree form. I say it’s Christmas tree formed, it’s as near a tree form as I might handle and I’m really fairly pleased with it! 

I discovered that making the form was far simpler utilizing two items of pastry, and it additionally offered extra servings of the scrumptious Nutella Christmas tree, so it’s all good in my books. 

It’s important to be fairly assured with the pastry – and don’t do what I did, and make the right tree, after which have to maneuver it to your baking tray. Form the pastry ON THE TRAY!!! 

Pastry

I used shop-bought pastry as a result of I actually don’t need to hassle making it myself. Sure I do know, some individuals merely hate me for utilizing shop-bought substances, and I don’t know why. If the ingredient exists, it’s there for use. 

The puff pastry creates an exquisite texture to the Nutella Christmas tree, which you wouldn’t get from different varieties of pastry. I believe shortcrust could be too crumbly and dry, in comparison with the sunshine buttery texture of puff. 

Shaping the pastry is surprisingly straightforward although it appears to be like fancy. You simply want to stay to a triangle form for the tree, minimize down firmly on the trunks of the tree, and twist. 

It’s necessary to not minimize by means of the center stalk of the tree although as you want one thing steady for the pastry to stay to. 

Filling

So, as you might be totally conscious by now, the filling is Nutella. I soften the Nutella barely earlier than utilizing it to ensure it’s simpler to maneuver and unfold about tearing the pastry. I do that within the microwave, however in a pan on low warmth additionally works nicely. 

Should you don’t need to use Nutella although, you need to use so many different flavours, and even combos! Biscoff, peanut butter, jam, no matter you need that’s spreadable! I’ve made this earlier than and swap the trunks of the tree between Nutella and Biscoff, and it’s been great. 

Suggestions & Concepts

You may make different shapes, akin to a snowflake. Comply with the identical concept, however as a substitute of constructing triangles of pastry, you may make circles, and minimize in the identical approach. Depart a small circle within the center to maintain all of it connected, and twist. 

I exploit shop-bought pastry as I’ve mentioned – you should purchase the sheets, or purchase the block and roll them out. 

  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • 250 g nutella
  • 1 egg (crushed for glazing)
  • 15 g icing sugar (for dusting)
  • Preheat the oven to 200ºc/180ºfan and line a big baking tray with parchment paper

  • Seize your two sheets of puff pastry and minimize off the corners to make lengthy triangles

  • (off cuts could make one thing else, or be frozen for one more time)

  • Lay one triangle onto the lined baking tray

  • Unfold the nutella on prime (could also be simpler to soften it first)

  • Add the second triangle of pastry on prime

  • Lower branches on the tree by reducing by means of the sheets of pastry and nutella, in inch sized rows, from prime to backside (take a look at the photographs for reference).

  • Be sure that to depart an inch column down the center of the tree so it is nonetheless linked.

  • Rigorously twist every department just a few occasions to create swirls within the pastry

  • As soon as swirled, brush the uncovered pastry with the crushed egg

  • Bake within the oven for 20-25+ minutes, till golden. As soon as baked, mud with icing sugar.

  • You are able to do the identical concept as an enormous snowflake. Lower two massive circles, and comply with the identical concept, however maintain a circle within the center uncut
  • That is finest served recent
  • As per the publish, filling may be no matter unfold you favor, or a mix! Biscoff and nutella work wonders collectively.
