This recipe has been a bit of an internet sensation as of late. Incredibly easy and fun to make. All you need is some Nutella and Puff Pastry. Sure you can make your own puff pastry, but unless you have loads of time, and skill, bought is just fine 🙂
Great to share, pull apart and eat warm, or i think even better cold.
I tried several ways of making this Nutella Star, the winning way is to twist the pieces OUTWARDS, away from each other.
Also, if you start with a round sheet of pastry, you will get a sun shaped pull-a-part. I quite liked leaving it square, as why would you want to waste good nutella? Ha ha. And also, it looks more like a snowflake, very fitting for this time of year! Lightly dust with some icing sugar for an extra Christmassy look.
