Chocolate chip-Nutella pastries

The name says it all. Who can resist?

1 sheet of thawed puff pastry
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 to 1/3 cup Nutella (or more, as you like)
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
slivered almonds

Mix the chips and the Nutella together. Cut the puff pastry into squares. Make an egg wash of the egg and the water, mixing them well, and apply the egg wash to the edges of each square. Place a spoonful of chip mix into each square and fold them diagonally, sealing the edges well. Put a little more egg wash on top of each one, and sprinkle some slivered almonds on them. Place on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.

There might be a little chocolate-chip-Nutella mixture left over. But what happens in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen.

  1. Wow...lots of yummies here plus ideas to save on the food dollars too! Love this!Here's one for you...WinterTime S'MoresArrange graham cracker squares on plate that will fit in the microwave. Spread each square with Nutella and top with miniature marshmallows. Microwave on 60% power about a minute...more or less depending on your machine. Just wait til the marshmallows billow up. Cool slightly after cooking! Yummy quick treat out of things in the pantry!
