These muffins are out of this world! Soft fluffy rolls oozing with warm Nutella and drizzled with a simple sweet cream cheese icing. You’re welcome!



  • 1 cup warm whole milk (110°F degrees)
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & slightly cooled
  • 21/2 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread

Cream Cheese Icing:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 11/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk


  1. Warm milk on the stovetop or in the microwave to 110°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 15×20-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 350°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.
