These have been a labor of love for the past few weeks. I had dreamed them up and wasn’t willing to settle for anything less than perfection. Four tries later and I was in love the moment I pulled them from the oven.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 12
  • Dough:
  • 1 cup warm whole milk (110Β°F degrees)
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & slightly cooled
  • 2-1/2 cups bread flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread
  • Cream Cheese Icing:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  1. Warm milk on the stovetop or in the microwave to 110Β°F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the yeast and sugar. Gently pour the warm milk over the sugar and yeast. Allow to proof, about 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the beaten egg and melted butter. Stir in the flour and salt with a wooden spoon until a smooth wet dough is formed. Cover the bowl with a damp dish towel and let dough rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. Using a well-floured rolling pin, roll dough to a 15x20-inch rectangle.
  5. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Melt the Nutella for about 20 seconds in the microwave, just until it’s of drizzling consistency. Drizzle the Nutella over the dough and spread evenly almost to the edges, using a spatula. Roll up dough from one of the 20-inch sides to the other. Cut into 12 pieces (roughly 1-1/2 inch cuts) and place one piece in each muffin cup.
  7. Place the muffin pan in the oven and turn it on to heat to 350Β°F. The muffins will rise as the oven preheats. Bake until muffins are lightly browned on top, about 20-22 minutes total. Let muffins rest in the pan while you prepare the icing.
  8. Make the icing: In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Slowly add the milk until smooth and of drizzling consistency.
  9. Remove the muffins from the pan and drizzle with the cream cheese icing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Store leftover muffins in the refrigerator. To reheat, place in a warm oven for a few minutes or heat in the microwave for about 15 seconds.

    Wow! Do you think this could be done with cookie butter instead of Nutella? Or would that end up being too sweet?

  2. WOW! These look incredible, like the perfect treat to make for my kids who love nutella. Pinned, I’m going to try them soon and will report back πŸ™‚

  3. Stunning! I saw these on FoodGawker and almost passed them by thinking they were cinnamon rolls – I’m so happy I gave a second look to see the word Nutella! These are such a lovely idea!! May I ask what happened to the first 3 batches that caused you not to like them? Pretty photos πŸ˜€

      Thanks Kaitlin! The dough didn’t rise like I wanted it to with the first batch, it was too dry with the second batch (had to adjust the flour and moisture), and then not enough Nutella in another batch. πŸ™‚ Finally got it just right and they’re amazing!

    I love that people are so positive and rate the recipe really well but the rating is for the appearance and the picture (I admit it really looks delicious and very good photography!) But what I expect from the ratings is for the recipe itself and if people tried it. When I look for reviews, I expect people have tried it and so it will be a great help for other readers to gauge whether to make it or not. Thank you for the recipe and now I will blindly make it for my sons, because they liked the picture and sent it to me. It’s not that I don’t trust you, but people have different tastes and preferences. I love comparing the picture, the recipe and the recipe and then I decide. So since I have not made it, I certainly will not rate it, but will do so later…
