Two of our favorite foods are the chocolate hazelnut spread Nutella and twisted donuts. So we knew it was only a matter of time before we combined them in the same recipe.
We made them out of crescent roll or croissant dough for fun, and then twisted them up for a French cruller look. Even though they have a fancy look, they’re actually really easy to make.
Because they’re baked instead of deep fried, they’re healthier too. This is one of our favorite crescent roll recipes along with our Nutella Banana Crescent Ring of course.
Watch our video tutorial to see how to make them:
Easy Nutella Crescent Twisted Donuts Bake (with Video)
- 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls 4 oz

- Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Set aside a sheet pan and line with cooking parchment paper.
- Unroll crescent rolls. Take 1 roll and pinch seams together to form one long rectangle.
- Spread 1 Tbsp Nutella evenly over dough to within 1/4 inch of edges.
- Roll up dough starting at longest side; pinch to seal.
