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…

  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 ;)

    I’ve been eyeing these rolls up on Pinterest for a few weeks now, they just keep looking better and better! And I love the new look of your site, totally awesome!!!!!
