Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups Nutella spread
  • 1 (8 ounce) package phyllo dough, thawed according to package directions
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • optional ~ flaked sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Scoop Nutella into a large piping bag, or gallon sized zip-top bag and snip the corner off.
  4. Unwrap thawed phyllo dough and cover it with a slightly moist clean kitchen towel. Phyllo dries out very quickly, so keeping it covered while you’re working is essential.
  5. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on your work surface carefully. Using a pastry brush, brush melted butter on one half of the phyllo and fold the other half on top. The butter works like a glue and holds the sides together. Pipe a strip of Nutella down one side of the dough, leaving ½ inch at the top and the bottom. Fold the Nutella up at the ends (so it doesn’t squeeze out) and then tightly roll the phyllo into a tube. Lightly brush the end with butter so the end stays sealed.
  6. Place the “cigar” onto the baking sheet and lightly brush with a little more butter.
  7. Repeat this process with all the sheets of phyllo.
  8. Bake the “cigars” for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt flakes if desired.
