I am a huge fan of croissants – chocolate, cheese, or plain and I’ve often wished that the recipes seemed less like a foreign language! Most croissant recipes look really complicated and are not something I’m brave enough to try.

However, one day I stumbled on an exciting and too-easy-to-be-true recipe for croissants. While I wouldn’t dream of ranking my baking skills with those of the French, when I tried this croissant recipe, it was pretty amazing!
I was on Pinterest, exploring all the exciting ideas, pinning far too many, and not actually achieving anything in life, other than filling my head with enticing projects, most of which I would probably never make or try when I noticed the recipe!
“Three-Ingredient Nutella Croissants.”
The title, as intended, always sparks my interest, even though nine times out of ten, that three-ingredient recipe, has about seven more “not-ingredients” that have to be added or it will flop disastrously.
Despite this, I usually always follow the link to the website, ever hopeful that it will be a three-ingredient (or less) masterpiece after all!
Thankfully, I carried out my normal routine of “just checking.” “Three-Ingredient Nutella Croissants.” The title said it, and, to my excitement, the ingredients said it too!
Some would argue, that Nutella is more than one ingredient in itself. But hey, I’m not a pro, if it comes out of one jar, and I don’t have to add anything to it, in my mind, it’s one!
Although the original recipe was amazing the croissants were made using puff pastry. Because I find puff pastry a little oily I changed it up a little and made my own version which is also super delicious! However, if you’re a puff pastry lover then head over to gimmesomeoven.com for the original recipe.
My hubby loves them and so does everyone who’s ever tried one. Plus they’re super easy and fun to make. You’ll feel like you can accomplish anything once you’ve made a batch of these croissants!
They look incredible, taste amazing, and will impress everyone who sees them!
Three-Ingredient Nutella Croissant Recipe
Three – Ingredient Nutella CroissantsCourse: DessertCuisine: Austrian, FrenchDifficulty: Medium
Gorgeous looking and easy to make these little croissants are heaven in small bites! Best served fresh from the oven. Pastry and Nutella – two of the most delicious treats all in one!
1 roll Shortcrust Pastry
1 jar Nutella
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
- Roll out defrosted pastry and cut into triangles.
- Place a dollop of Nutella at the wide end of the triangle and spread down towards the point. Don’t spread to the edge of the pastry to prevent the Nutella from squeezing out and burning while baking.
- Starting at the wide end, roll up into a croissant shape. Once rolled, curve the ends towards each other slightly.
- Spread the croissants on a greased baking tray.
- Baste with egg.
- Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden.
- Can be stored in the fridge for up to three days but taste best eaten fresh from the oven.
