In the world of sweets and treats,
“good” often means “complicated.”
But sometimes? It doesn’t. Sometimes it’s easy. Super easy.
Two-ingredient easy, like these Nutella-stuffed waffles. I know—you’re saying, “How can
waffles be two ingredients?”
When you use puff pastry, that’s
scrolling through Pinterest a while back when I noticed a picture of puff pastry dough put
through a waffle maker (genius, right?). I immediately imagined all
those flaky layers, enveloped in a crisp, buttery exterior. And then I imagined it stuffed with
Nutella (cause, that’s how I roll).
It is seriously just that easy.
Thaw your dough, cut it to fit your waffle iron and layer the pastry with Nutella. Heat up in your waffle iron and
you’ve got a decadent, indulgent and impressive dessert that only requires a
dusting of powdered sugar, a scoop (or two) of ice cream, or a dollop of
whipped cream. (Or all three—no judging here.)
Nutella-Stuffed Puff Pastry Waffles
one 17-ounce package frozen puff
pastry, thawed but still cold
1/4 - 1/2 cup Nutella
powdered sugar, whipped cream or ice cream to accompany
1. Pre-heat your waffle iron according
2. Working with one sheet at a time,
unfold the pastry and press lightly to smooth out any creases.
3. Cut the sheet in half and then trim each half to fit your waffle iron. Spread one half liberally with the Nutella, leaving a 1/2" border on all sides. Top with the other half, place in your waffle iron and cook for 6 - 10 minutes (check after 6 minutes). Pastry should be golden brown.
4. Remove waffle and repeat with remaining pastry and Nutella. Serve warm, with accompaniments if desired.
