Braided Nutella Bread

A fun homemade snack combining chocolate and croissant flavors
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
Servings: 12 servings


  • 16 oz crescent roll dough, I used Pillsbury (two 8-oz cans)
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • flour, optional for rolling


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat and set aside.
  • Open cans of dough and slice into 3 pieces each. Spread optional flour onto a flat surface.
  • Roll out each piece to about 1/4 inch thickness. Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of nutella on top and pinch into a ball.
  • Roll each ball out to an oval shape. Using a sharp knife, make widthwise incisions across about 1/2-inch apart on each piece.
  • Turn pieces over and roll up lengthwise. Shape into a crescent and pinch ends together with beaten egg. Brush tops with egg.
  • Place breads onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Enjoy hot, warm or cold!
