So simple, yet so delicious (Picture: Nutella)
Many of us begin the festive season with good intentions. This year, we won’t be doing a last-minute dash to the local supermarket to buy up Viennettas and pre-made pastries.
No, this Christmas is one for home baking.
But amongst the stress of wrapping a million presents, sending cards to people who you can’t even remember how you know and making sure your pets don’t destroy the Christmas tree, the idea of baking starts to feel less like fun and more like a chore.
Well don’t panic because we’ve found what possibly might be the most delicious-sounding, easy to make dessert idea ever.
And it only contains three ingredients!
We’re talking about a Nutella Christmas tree.
It’s perfect because Nutella is a breakfast spread (at least on this continent) so it’s completely legit to bake and eat as soon as you wake up. Not that you need an excuse because Christmas breakfasts usually consist of alcohol and Quality Street anyway.
Ingredients for a Nutella Christmas tree
1/2 jar of Nutella
Egg wash (i.e. a beaten egg)
And the method is equally as simple.
All you do is lay out your first sheet of pastry before smearing Nutella on top, in a triangular shape.
Lie your second sheet over the top before cutting your triangle out.
Horizontally slice the sides and twist.
Then dab some of the beaten egg of the top before shoving in a Gas Mark 4 oven for 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and devour.
So easy. So time-saving. So much better than any puddings out there.
Christmas dessert has been saved.
