Nutella® Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree
Add a show-stopping breakfast (or dessert!) to your holiday table with this easy and festive recipe for a Nutella® Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree.


  • 2 sheets puff pastry, semi-frozen

  • 2 tablespoons Nutella®

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter,melted

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar (or 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon)


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.

  2. Cut out both puff pastry sheets in the shape of a Christmas tree. Evenly spread Nutella® on one sheet of pastry. Place the other cut out sheet of puff pastry on top. 

  3. Transfer to baking sheet. Cut slits on both sides spacing them about 1-inch apart (or about 2 cm), leaving the centre intact.

  4. Twist each strip of pastry twice, pressing the ends into the baking sheet. Cut out two-star shapes with the leftover pastry, spread one with Nutella and place the other on top like a sandwich. Place the star on the top of the tree.

  5. Brush pastry with egg yolk mixed with a little water. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 400°F (200°C) until golden.

  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Lightly brush pastry with the melted butter (you may not use it all), and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
