Just three ingredients is all it takes to turn store-bought crescent rolls into scrumptious, irresistible Nutella Cruffins.


  • 3 (8 ounce) tubes of crescent roll dough
  • 3/4 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • sugar, for sprinkling on top


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Roll out each sheet of the crescent roll dough until you have 3 larger rectangles that are slightly larger than what you started with and the perforated lines are blended back together.
  4. Spread about ¼ cup of Nutella onto each sheet.
  5. Starting on the long end of the rectangle, roll up the dough into a log.
  6. Cut the dough in half, giving you shorter logs.
  7. Then cut each of those logs in half, lengthwise.
  8. Repeat with the other two sheets. When you’re finished, you should have 12 pieces.
  9. Take each piece and wrap it around your finger to form the shape of a muffin, with the layered side facing out.
  10. Place each rolled piece in the greased muffin pan.
  11. Bake for about 18-20 minutes on the middle rack of the oven, rotating the pan halfway through the baking time.
  12. Remove from the oven and immediately remove the cruffins from the pan.
  13. Sprinkle each cruffin generously with the sugar and place them on a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
