So it’s no secret that we have a love affair going on with Nutella! Whether it’s our Nutella Banana Crescent Ring or Nutella Pull Apart Pie or Braided Nutella Bread, these desserts are some of our favorites and will be yours too!

Today we’re making these baked Nutella donuts using crescent roll dough. Instead of having to stuff the Nutella into the middle as a chocolate filling, it gets woven throughout!

We’ve put these out for Game Day and people went crazy for them. They’re perfect for a party or potluck, although you might want to double the recipe!

How to Make Nutella Donuts

These donuts are super-easy to make. Unroll the crescent roll dough and pull off one triangular piece. Spread Nutella across the top and roll it up, pinching the two ends together to seal. Repeat for the remaining triangles.

Put the donuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Before baking, you can brush them with beaten egg and sprinkle with optional cinnamon sugar if you like. Then bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
