Nutella Stuffed Croissants

I’m currently eating what I’m writing about.

I’m getting crumbs all over the keyboard and I have literal butter fingers. Let me tell you, it is totally worth it.

Just look at this…

I knocked them up at the very last minute for a working brunch at my house. I had been thinking about the meeting and didn’t realise I hadn’t thought to buy food.

Thankfully I had some croissant dough left over from making Baby Cheesuses and a few other bits in the cupboards. So we had a pile of freshly baked Nutella stuffed croissants with a bulging bowl of raspberries and steaming mugs of Pact coffee (a great little company I told you about a while ago).

The house smelled like a bakery & I retained my domestic goddess halo… which I’m now going to remove for a second while I let you into the secret of how they’re made.

To start the extensive, complicated & sophisticated process…

Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F and pull here.

If you’ve ever enjoyed the satisfaction of popping open a new can of tennis balls, then you’ll have some inkling of just how delicious it is to open one of these.

Unroll your dough and separate.

Scoop out a teaspoon of Nutella.

Smear it on the base of the triangle (pointy bit away from you).

Sprinkle with nuts.


Until you’re left with a nice, fat little croissant.

Repeat until you run out of dough and then place them into your hot oven for 10-15mins.

When they’re golden brown and whispering to be eaten, they’re ready.

Serve with fresh berries.

They’re particularly good if you alternate a bite of croissant with a mouthful of raspberry.

You get to enjoy the crunchy, doughy, sharp, sweet, rich, tanginess one after the other then and it makes them a little more special.

No-one needs to know you didn’t spend hours preparing brunch and they’re excellent to nibble on later (if your guests are restrained enough to leave any left overs!)

Alternatively you could always roll them up at night, leave them on the side until the morning, cook them while you’re getting ready and take a whole batch to work. Unlimited workplace brownie points that you can reclaim all year long, smartypants.

Have you seen these?

  • So simple aswell! How have i not thought to do these before… the smell of them cooking is heaven – even when they are pre-made let alone homemade πŸ™‚

    • Rosie

      Soooo simple Mollie! Agreed, the smell is *almost* as good as the taste! πŸ˜‰

  • Joelle

    I thought I was the only one who made these (but with ground hazelnut)! They are little parcels of heaven!

    • Rosie

      Great minds Joelle!

      • Joelle


        • oooh ground hazelnut sounds so nice! Although personally I would maybe bung the raspberries inside the croissants as well =p


  • Regina

    They look delicious! You always make me hungry

  • This is excruciatingly tempting during the last day of revision, maybe this can be my reward after the exam tomorrow! Which of my housemates can I persuade to make them….

    • Rosie

      Good luck in the exam Caitlin, I’m sure you’ll smash it!

  • Damnnnnn. Those look good! Popping those cans of dough reminds me of Christmases at my parents when me and my brother would fight over the tube to pop! Must try this out now!

      It may just be the most satisfying thing in the entire world. Marketing genius.

    • Rosie

      I must have heard you all the way over there on the interweb!

  • Oh Yummy! And what a great idea for last minute callers! x

  • Yessss perfect for a student budget too πŸ™‚ Lovely idea!

    Ps. Rosie I need some serious brainstorm help, I’m working on a new blog/project and am super super stuck.

    • Rosie

      Oh no! What’s the project?

  • These sound gorgeous apart from the nuts! I’m not sure I’d like that crunch in there. Hmm. I’m so thrilled to find that they sell the Jus-roll for Tesco home delivery. I hadn’t ever noticed it before!

    • Rosie

      Get it delivered ASAP guurrl!
      Trust me on the nuts, they really add a beautiful texture.

  • Cate Elise

    I tried putting a chunk of Green & Black’s milk chocolate in them – it melts in the oven and goes all gooey and warm and perfect. And then I also ate some bacon with it. Which I know is wrong, but it’s so right.

    Rosie your blog keeps me going all day at work, thank you x The perks of being a

    • Rosie

      Oh good god Cate, that sounds outrageous! I wonder what would happen if you stuffed them with crispy bacon & a dribble of maple syrup?! Too far?

      • Cheese and chocolate!! Genuinely, trust me on this (and if you want to try it out before putting it in a croissant, just dunk chocolate digestives in brie- it’s actually amazing!)


  • Amber

    AWWWW!!! I hate croissants but these look like they may convert me!!

    • Rosie

      You are officially the first person I have ever heard of that doesn’t like croissants! What’s not to love?!

  • Cathie Spring
    • Rosie

      Those look delicious Cathie!

      • Megan

        Its not too bad the weekend isn’t too far away – and these look perfect for a weekend brunch. (optimistic…. πŸ™‚ )

  • Megan

    OH. MY.
    That looks like heaven. Excuse me while I return to my yucky porridge πŸ™

    • Rosie

      πŸ™ Sorry Megan x

  • these look so delicious!! x

  • Rita Mendes

    I am so doing this OMG I love nutella <3

  • That looks insanely delicious!

    I am usually more of a savory stuffed croissant kind of girl, but I cannot say no to Nutella.

    I’ve tried those rolled up croissant doughs on my dad (who grew up in France) and he approved! Might not be exactly the same as those made from scratch, but if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me!

    {Teffy’s Perks} X

  • Laura

    This would fuel my Nutella addiction rather nicely! Would it be too much to wash it down with a hot chocolate topped with whipped cream?! Yum!! X

  • Emma Helen

    After your Christmas post last year when I discovered this excellent shortcut to croissants I made them with peanut butter and nutella! They were good but a little rich naturally..I think this is a safer bet πŸ˜‰ x

  • Oh my god this looks amazing! Your food posts always make me super happy, haha. I’m definitely going to try this.

    Stephanie | Love, August

  • Robyn

    My Nutella is unfortunately a lot more solid than that in this weather! I could probably roll it into a ball, cover the ball in nuts and hope that it melts evenly! Can’t wait to try πŸ™‚

    • CatsLoveHam

      Put it in the microwave for a minute?

  • Charley

    You are awesome.

  • These look so deliciously filthy- think I’ll be winning some serious girlfriend points with these this weekend!

  • I was always scared of the dough can popping open when I was little πŸ™‚ It’s been a long long time since I’ve had a croissant though, so now I will now be in search of them at the store! What store(s) sells them?

  • Chloe Walker

    They look so yummy, I’ve never even thought about making my own croissants besides adding fillings!
    I cannot wait to give this ago!

  • Katie Saint

    These look so good! Have you tried them with any other fillings?

    These look delicious Rosie! Can’t wait to get some recipe posts up onto my blog that I finally plucked up the courage to start after two years of admiring yours! I dug out your old blogging 101 post and just wanted to say thank you for all the encouragement and guidance- even when you didn’t know when you were giving it!! It may be only two days old but you have to start somewhere!

  • Talisa Lauren Tossell
  • mmm looks so good x

  • Croissants and nutella=heaven! I even like to roll them in cinnamon and sugar before you bake them for a wee bit more flavor. (I made a batch like that and went into labor before I could finish the last two!)

  • This is giving me a total food boner

  • Jess

    Looks amazing. I live in Australia and can’t manage to find ready to bake croissant dough anywhere. Any Australian readers would appreciate a tip if you have found it! Thanks

  • Oh yes, these are divine – I’ve been making them for a while, but funnily enough I got the idea from your Sweet Baby Cheesus when I saw the wonders you could work with that croissant dough. I have to stop myself from stocking up on the dough now – it never actually lasts long enough to qualify as in stock.

  • Argh these look amazing! Serious contender to break my post-holiday indulgence attempt to not eat choc for a couple of weeks…x

  • Staci Rose

    This looks so yummy! I love anything with Nutella. My favourite is pretty simple, girl guide biscuits with Nutella.

  • HOLY MOLEY these look incredible! I’m going to have to see if they sell this magical croissant dough in Sydney!


  • MyFarmLifeDiary

    Rosie you are a bad bad woman. They are not whispering to be eaten – they are positively screaming!

  • Now I really want some of these for breakfast, they would blow a pain au chocolat out of the water! And, you know, obviously the nuts and raspberries are really good for you so you could blatantly just live on these, right? πŸ˜‰ Must make! xx

  • I am embarrassed to say that I never realised how simple croissants are. I had it my mind hours of dough creation and moulding, but you really just roll them.

    I will bust this out for friends and bask in the borrowed domestic goddess halo glory.

    Thanks Rosie!

    Hi Rose,
    do you think you can categorise your recipes according to the 80/20 rule (i.e. healthy / indulgent) ? It would make it easier to search for recipes

  • Hannah Clarke

    After reading this I am definitely making these this weekend. Without telling the rest of the household so they wake up to the sweet smell of these pastries. It must have been a good 15 years since I made homemade croissants.
