    This looks very good…and naughty! I have only become a Nutella fan in the past 5 years, and I must say, I LOVE IT! Lately, when the craving hits, I just dip some Nilla wafers in the jar…SO GOOD!

    Nutella is my new addiction, but I need to stay away from it. I just ate the whole entire jar in 2 days. Not good. :/ but those crossiants look amazing.

    I've seen a lot of very interesting things today, but I think this is the one I want to eat the most.

    If you get a chance, you should totally try to make some of your own Croissant dough. There are plenty of resources online (the great Joe of has a good step-by-step). The advantages of homemade include 1) freshness 2)can use all butter instead of factory processed with shortening 3) it's cheap and 4) you'll learn a lot about laminated doughs the first couple of times you fail miserably before triumphing supremely πŸ™‚

    Thank you Nick!

    That's a good idea, I need to have some scratch dough recipes in my repertoire πŸ™‚ After I made these and put them in the oven, I looked at the packaging for the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and in little writing I saw “imitation butter flavor” or something like that and I was immediately turned off. Making my own stuff is so much better

    haha your entry was hilarious it made me want to take a trip to paris asap!
    Nutella is honestly the perfect “hit the spot” sweetness. Plus when you're camping and you plan on making smores it works so much better and less mess, yippy!

    *on another note, how is the new casa? Have you bought all of crate and barel yet? haha

    Crystinna- Nutella smores sounds delicious!! What a great idea.

    The new house is good! Hahah I actually bought 2 glass canisters to keep flour and sugar in and a 2 tiered fruit basket. I had to resist buying every single item in that store!

    I make these a lot too! But I usually spread out the Nutella, not just have it in one big glob. I will try that next time though!! I really love to dip pretzels in Nutella. My sister and I will just keep eating and eating until were out of pretzels or Nutella, or both πŸ™‚
