breakfast roll showdown: nutella rolls


Let’s talk about breakfast rolls.  I am probably the last person on earth who wants to get out of bed and put together some complicated breakfast recipe first thing in the morning.  If you’re like me, then you will love these breakfast rolls because they are 1) SUPER easy and quick to make and 2) only require a handful of ingredients.  Oh and 3) one of them involves Nutella and the other one involves cinnamon, sugar and butter.  I mean, what’s not to like?

First up are the Nutella rolls.

Ingredients (recipe adapted from Inspired by Charm)

  • 1 can refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 3/4-1 cup Nutella
  • flour and sugar for rolling

Yields 8 rolls

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with baking spray.

Lightly flour and sugar your surface, and using a rolling pin, roll out each biscuit until it’s flat and even.


Spread 1-2 tablespoons of Nutella on each disc of dough.


Then tightly roll up each disc and cut into three sections.


Place the three pieces, cut side up into one section of the muffin tin.


Repeat for the remaining discs then bake for about 15 minutes.


For the purposes of promoting safe baking practices, you should let them cool about 5 minutes before popping them out of the muffin tins.  But I won’t blame you if you don’t.  (I didn’t.)


The original recipe calls for spreading cream cheese icing on these, but in my opinion they’re perfect alone.  The icing might take them over the sweetness ledge for me, however if that’s your cup of tea then go for it!

The biscuits are flaky and buttery and if you didn’t think Nutella on a spoon could get any better, just wait until you take a bite of these.  The best part is you can pull the sections apart for easy bite size pieces.


I’d recommend making two batches because the first 8 will be gone in minutes.  Not that I know from experience or anything.
