Chocolate! That’s what Santa would like!
Something he could nibble on, all through the night!
Yes! Chocolate! Oh what a treat!
I’m sure he will want something sweet to eat!
Hmm, chocolate! I’ll leave some on his plate!
To see if he eats it! Till morning I’ll wait!
Yes…Chocolate, looks so good I could cry!
Maybe he won’t mind if I had a piece to try.
Hmm, chocolate! Santa will have a ball!
Or at least he would have, if I hadn’t eaten it all…
this is personally one of my favourite poems I’ve written as it is soooo relatable haha!
Day 5! Oh my lord. Steven! Wrap those presents! (If you don’t know Steven is my online made up friend who I blame my problems on…*awkward*) Anyway…
Welcome to a great recipe I have seen floating around online. I first seen it last year on Tastemade and I thought I had to have a go at it. This Nutella Christmas Tree is perfect to make with the kids or for friends and family. It is so easy yet very effective!
What you need:
- 1-2 sheets of puff pastry (depending on Tree size)
Turn your oven on to 190 degrees. The first step is to roll out your puff pastry sheets and decide how big you want your tree design. My one was roughly the size of an A4 sheet. Basically, if you wanted yours smaller, cut one sheet in half. If you want yours to be the same size as mine, cut the two sheets of puff pastry into an A4 size piece of paper. Put a baking sheet on to a tray and place your puff pastry sheets on top. This makes it easier to move.
Next you want cut a triangle out leaving the top of the tree without a point (a picture I show in a bit will explain) and you also include the stump of the tree in the cut as well. Do this to both sheets of puff pastry.
Next you are basically creating a sandwich. You place Nutella on one sheet and spread the Nutella around until it is covering the whole of the sheet. Then place the other sheet on top.
You then cut little slits into the puff pastry going from roughly the middle – out. You’ll notice each section get smaller as you work up the tree.
You are then going to twist each section TWICE away from you to create the spirals. If you wish, you can cut out a star and place on top of the tree. Then beat at an egg and brush on top of the pastry.
You then place the Nutella Tree in the oven until golden for around 10-12 minutes. After, you are left with a yummy, impressive Nutella Christmas Tree that will please a lot of people.
I really hope you try this recipe and if you do, please send me a picture! You can try this with any filling as well. The possibilities are endless! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my Blogmas so far.
Thank you and see you tomorrow!
