Ingredients

  • 2 sheets Frozen Puff Pastry thawed
  • 2 c Hazelnuts roasted and skins removed
  • 11 oz. Vegan Coconut Sweetened Condensed Milk (you can find on Amazon)
  • 2 c Vegan Chocolate Chips or Chunks (you can find on Amazon)

OPTIONAL:

  • Chopped Nuts
  • 1 tbsp Melted Vegan Margarine
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar

Instructions

  • Defrost 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry on a lined cookie sheet.
  • The first step is to prepare the homemade Nutella (Hazelnut Butter).  Process hazelnuts (that have been roasted and skins rubbed to remove) until a butter forms.
  • While this is happening, melt the chocolate over a double boiler or slowly in a microwave.
  • Combine the hazelnut butter, melted chocolate and vegan coconut sweetened condensed milk.  To adjust sweetness, add more or less of the sweetened condensed milk.
  • Roll the puff pastry lightly to flatten and spread 1/3 of the nutella on one sheet, 1/3 on the other.  You will have 1/3 of the Nutella recipe remaining from this recipe to use for another time.  Do not overfill the pastry.
  • OPTIONAL: If you'd like, you can add some additional chopped nuts on 1/2 of the Nutella lined pastry.
  • Take the other puff pastry and flip on top of the other so that the Nutella sides are FACING one another.  NOTE: IF YOU ARE NOT USING CHOPPED NUTS IN BETWEEN YOUR LAYERS, YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO SPREAD THE NUTELLA ON 1/2 OF THE PUFF PASTRY.
  • Using a rolling pin, lightly roll the two layers together.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice into 1/2" strips and twist as if you are making cheese straws.
  • Simply roll the rolled straws into a spiral, tucking the end underneath and pressing slightly.
  • Brush with melted vegan margarine and sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar if desired.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden.  If any of the Nutella oozes out during baking (which is likely), you can just clean it up away from the pastry afterwards.
