Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Cinnamon Rolls

Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Cinnamon Rolls

Sometimes when you are successful with a recipe you try to reuse it as much as possible, this post is no different as we love this cinnamon roll recipe we had for ages and were trying all sorts of different flavour variations with it.  So far we had created the classic cinnamon rolls, apple caramel cinnamon rolls and now this recipe Nutella and hazelnut cinnamon rolls. This flavour is basically inspired by my favourite chocolate “Ferrero Rocher“; it is basically sprinkled with lots of chocolate chips, chopped roasted hazel nuts and topped with Nutella.

Nutella for those who don’t know is a brand of a hazelnut spread manufactured by an Italian Company called Ferrero the same company behind “Ferrero Rocher”. This spread was commercialized during the 1963’s and was an improved version of a spread created in 1944, traditionally it was made out of 50% almond and hazelnut paste and 50% chocolate and its invention was attributed to the taxed imposed before in cocoa beans that hindered the manufacturing and distribution of chocolates. Initially Pietro Ferrero sold this hazelnut concoction as solid blocks called “Pasta Gianduja” in 1946. In 1949 it was made creamy version called “Supercrema” then in 1963 Pietro Ferrero’s son Michele altered the Supercrema recipe and marketed it across Europe and it was named as “Nutella“.

It was good the recipe was altered otherwise there would be a possibility that we would not know about this product. I love Nutella much more than peanut butter; I can have it for toast every day. How about you are you fond of Nutella like the way I do?

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk

  3. Remove dough from the bowl, deflate and roll into a floured surface until it reaches 24 x 16 inches in dimension. The thickness should be around 1/4 inch.
