PinFTW: It's almost like making pastries...for dummies.

Ok, so, I like fancy tasting food, but I'm not such a fancy chef. I'm more like a little-of-this/little-of-that/make it up as I go, chef. I had to make a snack for our church group a few weeks ago and was fresh out of recipe ideas; sooooo, I zoned out on Pinterest for a while until I found something worthy of a snack to share. I'd been seeing these little yummies float around on my pin feed for a while, but never really had a reason to make them.

Because we go through both crescent rolls and Nutella in mass quantities in this house, I had the two main ingredients on hand. AND, luckily, powdered sugar is one of those things I buy a whole new bag of every time I need it for a recipe (because I'm just not sure if we have any), so we had about two tons of that in the pantry as well.

I was able to assemble these little treats quickly (it's basically this: unroll the crescent dough, spread each triangle with Nutella, then roll-up, bake, and sprinkle with powdered sugar when they come out of the oven). I also loved the fact that I didn't have to measure anything. It's basically a Nutella and powdered sugar free-for-all ~ use as much or as little as you like. YUM! I absolutely loved these and they may have been better the next day. Spreading the Nutella on the dough can get a little messy, but that's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things. I used two cans of rolls (to feed a crowd). It was more than enough. I think I ate two for breakfast the next day.

I will definitely make them again. :) Be sure to let me know if you try them and like them (or don't like them)!
