Ingredients for Nutella Christmas Tree
— 2 sheets puff pastry
— 50g Nutella
— 4 Tbsp. of raspberry jam
— 1 egg yolk
How to Make the Nutella Christmas Tree
—Cut out both sheets of puff pastry in the shape of a Christmas tree.
— Smear the Nutella on one sheet of pastry, and then add the raspberry jam on top of that. Spread together.
— Then, place your second sheet of puff pastry on top of that.
— On both edges, use a knife to slice lines on both sides which will create branches. Make sure to leave the center unbroken (that’s the trunk) and space all the cuts at an equal level, at least 1 cm apart.
— Now that you’ve got your tree with the branch slits, pick up each branch and gently twist.
— Use some of the leftover pastry to cut up a treetop decoration, such as a star.
— Finally, brush the entire tree with a mix of egg yolk and water, paying special attention to the twists in each branch.
— Bake your tree for 25 minutes at 392 degrees Fahrenheit.
— Dust with icing sugar
