Love is in the air. Love for Nutella, that is. I’ve been saving these for a special occasion, and I finally have one! A friend and I planned a Nutella party (Well, she did all the planning. I just threw the idea out there) so I made these.
Yum. Read on.
Jordan was in town from Portland and offered to assist. You may remember her from Spice Stars.
This is a first for me. I pulled them out right before they started burning!
I still love this glass bowl.
Crap. I’m out of plastic wrap. Will wax paper work? I’ll try it.
We all know I suck at rolling dough, so I made Jordan do it.
Work that dough, girl.
Nice mani, Jord. She prepared!
WHAT?! Some of these melted! Ughhhhh.
Next time I put them in the freezer for a few minutes before baking.
It worked much better.
Look at that chocolate-hazelnutty beauty.
I got: 26
Start time: 8:50
End time: 12:20 (3 hours, 30 mins)
Martha’s estimated time: 3 hours, 30 mins (OMG!)
What did I learn?
- Always freeze or refrigerate your dough after cutting, before baking.
Nutella is good.I already knew that.
- The wax paper worked as an emergency substitute. The dough didn’t dry out like I expected.
What do I need to learn?
- How do you know when the dough is 1/8 inch thick?
- How do you get good at rolling dough? Don’t say practice.
These were a hit at the party, but I unfortunately lost the title of “Best Recipe” to Nutella-covered bacon. I was heartbroken.
