Kids in the Kitchen – Nutella Crescents

Do you like to include your kids in the kitchen?

I have daughters who love to help me cook but they’re still too young to prepare anything on their own. They were so excited when I told them I found a recipe they could prepare all on their own!

This recipe is easy, it has a fun preparation process, it’s quick (done in 15 minutes!), and it tastes finger-licking “yummy”. My kids had a great time preparing dessert all on their own and we only had one mommy-intervention moment. In my defense I rarely buy prepackaged crescents so my kids didn’t know the dough was precut. In the end we had to reform a few crescents but that only made it even more fun for my kids.

So, if you’re looking for a way to get your kids involved in the kitchen (and you don’t want to burn your house down while they’re at it) try this recipe. Plus, you can rarely go wrong with Nutella.

Nutella Crescent Rolls

1 package of crescent rolls (8 count)

a jar of Nutella

powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Open the crescent rolls, separate them into triangles and lay out on a flat surface. Spread them generously with Nutella then roll the crescent per the package directions, starting at the wide area and ending at the point.

Place them on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, checking frequently so they don’t get too dark.

Remove the rolls from the oven and sift powdered sugar on top. These are best eaten warm.
