Chocolate Nutella Turnovers

Nutella and chocolate wrapped in puff pastry...

...if only every morning could start like this!

As part of FoodBuzz's tastemaker program, I received a coupon for a free box of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. {Who says blogging doesn't have it's benefits?}


All I could think of was chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. And let me tell you, I was a hero in my 10-year-old's eyes after serving these for breakfast. (That lasted all of 15 minutes, but it was worth it.)

Even my husband who "doesn't like Nutella" ate two of them and said these belonged on the menu at a "fancy pastry place." Sorry, honey...I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you officially like Nutella now.


Chocolate Nutella Turnovers


1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry (from the 17.3 oz box), thawed
1 & 1/2 c. chocolate chips, divided
1/2 c. Nutella
1 egg
1 TBSP water
2 TBSP slivered almonds
1 TBSP shortening (such as Crisco)

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Stir together 1 cup chocolate chips and the Nutella.

On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a 12 x 12 inch square. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 9 squares.

With a fork, whisk together the egg and water. Using your finger, apply the egg wash to 2 adjacent sides of each square.

Add 1 heaping tablespoon of the chocolate/Nutella mixture to the middle of each square. Fold over to make triangles and press to seal edges.

{There will be some of this mixture leftover. What happens in the kitchen, stay in the kitchen.}

Brush the top of each turnover with egg wash. Sprinkle with the slivered almonds. Bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the reserved 1/2 c. chocolate chips and the shortening in the microwave on 50% power in 30-second intervals. Stir after each interval until melted. Set aside.

Remove the turnover for the oven and place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.

Spoon the melted chocolate into a quart-sized freezer baggie (a storage baggie might burst) and snip a hole in one corner. Squeeze over the turnovers in a decorative pattern.


Having guests for Christmas? They are going to love these!

  1. The real question is this. Did you tell him it had nutella in it before you served it? I love tricking people into loving something they say they don't...haha I'm horrible. Now I know what I can do with that puff pastry that is sitting in my freezer...yum!

  3. Oh, these look sooooooo good! I love Nutella! I have fond memories of sitting in the kitchen of an English hostel as a 20-year-old, eating Nutella for the first time. I scooped it out and ate it straight off the spoon. *sigh* if only I still had the metabolism I did back then.

  29. Not like Nutella? Your husband was certainly in the minority, I believe. Glad he has seen the light! The turnovers look great! Isn't it wonderful how simple puff pastry can make a girl feel like she's the premier chef in a chic Paris bistro?

  36. LOVE your blog! Could you possibly do a blonde brownie with coconut, pineapple and white chocolate? I had one at sugar daddys in ohio and i tried to make it at home but just can't get it right.
    thanks you the best

    ReplyDelete
  37. Could you PLEASE post something else on your blog? Each day I look at it I see "chocolate" and "nutella" and have these urges to run to the store and make them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Is Nutella not the best food on earth???
    Ok, just read the comment about QVC. Thought I was losing it!!
    Good to know your not on QVC. They approached us, but we're not into that much mass production, plus they don't want to pay enough for such a handmade product.
    Can you tell I'm not a fan of QVC?

  42. I've still never tried Nutella BUT I really want to soon! All of your food always looks divine! Also, I just made royal icing and didn't do anything special because I ran out of time. :( So, I didn't do that sanding sugar technique that you showed on those pumpkins. BUT it's still top of my list to try!! :) When I do, I will be sure to link to you. Thank you so much for all your inspiration!
