Nutella Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

This recipe is so stinkin’ easy.  One of my favorite blogs, Inspired by Charm created this yummy and simple recipe and I have fallen in LOVE with it!  Seriously… the Nutella Rolls themselves are 2 ingredients… 3 if you add a little sugar.  The cream cheese icing sets it over the top into easy and blissful heaven :)  Need a fast, easy, and tasty after-school treat or breakfast?!… Well, look no further! This is just the recipe for you!

Let’s face it.  Nutella may be one of the best things ever invented.  Do I keep a few jars on hand at all times… maybe.  Sometimes I catch myself sneaking into my pantry just to get a good spoonful of it.  If there was one food I didn’t mind wasting calories on, it would be Nutella.

Try these puppies out, and you will be so happy you did.  I know I was!


Don’t they just make your mouth water???….

And watch how simple they are to make…



and now, how to make them yourself…

Nutella Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing


By Chef in Training Published: April 30, 2012

    This recipe is so stinkin' easy.  One of my favorite blogs, Inspired by Charm created this yummy and simple recipe and I have fallen …



    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
    2. Roll each of the 8 Pillsbury Grand Biscuits out into a flat circle with rolling pin. Coat with sugar on both sides.
    3. Spread a couple Tbsp. of Nutella onto each rolled out dough.
    4. Roll up each dough.
    5. Cut each rolled up dough into 3 equal pieces.
    6. Place 3 pieces, with the cut side up, into each muffin tin slot.
    7. Bake at 350 F for about 15 minutes. Once cooked, let cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes, then remove and let finish cooling (or if you are like me and like them warm, then you won't have to wait long :) )
    8. For Icing, beat softened cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together until smooth. Top Each Nutella Roll with Icing.

        I have to make these soon. My In-Laws are from Germany and have been addicted to Nutella their whole lives. I almost feel deprived learning about it only a few years ago. Thank you for the recipe!

        I just made these - they are delicious! But instead of putting 3 of them in each tin, I made 'mini' rolls. I put 1/3 of each rolled up dough in each mini muffin slot = perfect! I hope someone else comes home quick, before I eat them all ;)

        Nikki, these nutella rolls are genius! i LOVE recipe shortcuts -- using cake mixes, cookie mixes, cresent dough, biscut dugh, etc.. such a time saver! it's really incredible how you always seem to make the yummiest of treats with so little ingredients. i pinned these to make sometime soon. :)

      10. kirstin @ kojodesigns

        I think you and I are food soul mates. However, I could not keep jars of nutella on hand because I would just eat it ALL by the spoonful.
        Can not wait to try these. Pinning!

Then poof there it was on Pinterest, which lead me to here. Very creative! I can already see different variations of this :)

      29. Neetu

        Hi, the rolls look yummy. Just wanted to know what grand biscuits are? Also what can I substitute it with as I am not sure if we can get it here in India.
