Nutella & Peanut Butter Crescent Roll Dessert

A few weeks ago on RE Facebook page, I asked my friends what they thought this picture was … many got it right. Can you guess?

An almost-empty jar of Nutella.

Which is a very sad day in our household, when we run out of Nutella.

Anyway, a while back, on our family’s last night of vacation together, I wanted to make a tasty treat. The last night usually means rummaging through the fridge for leftovers, trying to eat up what’s left, and it also meant we were scrambling for a little chocolate-something-dessert.

Our family has loved Nutella for years, long before it became so popular.

We know how good it is spread on a warm croissant, on a graham cracker, or as a quick treat by the spoonful, dipped into a creamy jar of peanut butter!

Since we didn’t have warm croissants, but we did have peanut butter and Pillsbury Crescent Rolls in the fridge, so my daughter and I made a quick Nutella & Peanut Butter Crescent Roll Dessert. Oh, boy!

Oh, my. Can you say “Melt in your mouth?”

Serve warm to your family.

They will love you forever.

What’s your favorite quick and easy way to eat Nutella?

  2. I’d definitely love this & I think the boyfriend would too. What did the world do before Nutella?! We were so missing out. I’m stopping by from Pinterest & thanks for sharing.

  3. WOW. So this exists… Can’t wait to makes this for the friends and fam! It’s like the food equivalent to a warm hug :)

  4. Oh my those do look divine- pinning this to my food board.
    Happy Day

  5. Are you joking me? Drooll…. This looks so good, and it’s so easy. Love that!

  6. WHat exactly is crescent rolls?… mille feuille dough?

  7. OMG…this looks amazing…I have all of the ingredients. Can I blame you if I eat the whole thing myself? ;)

  8. Thanks Sandy! My hormones and I are now CRAVING this and may in fact just have to whip it up for dessert tonight! :-) My family and I thank you.

  9. This looks yummy (without the peanut butter. I HATE peanut butter). My favorite way to eat Nutella is spread on warm crepes with a banana sliced on top. Eaten on the street in Paris would make it even better.

  10. YUM! That looks awesome!
    My 3yo has recently gotten on a Nutella kick and we must replenish the stockpile. But I think maybe I don’t cook enough with Nutella…especially since we’re living in Germany right now where Nutella comes from!
    Over here, it’s a staple in every home…and in all the Christmas markets, you will find tons of crepes with Nutella and other goodness. The best crepe yet, was Nutella with bananas. So yummy!

  11. With a spoon?! I like to dip bananas in it. It’s also good melted on ice cream. Seriously, Nutella is like the bacon of sweets- it makes anything taste better!!
