Home For the Holidays: The Nutella Christmas Tree with Annie Seaton


Baking, decorating, family…all the things that fill the holidays with joy. Join our Entangled authors as they share a little something special from their home during the holidays.


Christmas is my favourite time of the year. Shopping for presents, looking for new recipes and preparing the food, and then the actual day when you spend a relaxing day with loved ones are all a wonderful part of the season. I’m always on the lookout for easy novelty recipes that look and taste great, and reflect the day, and this year I found a fabulous new recipe.

In my outback Prickle Farm series, my characters are always cooking and entering cooking competitions, between finding their happy ever afters! I must write this recipe into one of my stories next years

Her Outback Surprise is set at Christmas Time Down Under and you can see it here:



The Nutella Christmas Tree

(Note: this recipe is spectacular!)

What you need:

2 sheets puff pastry

2 tbs Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread

1 egg

10 raspberries or your choice of decoration

What you do:

Preheat the oven to 200˚C.

Work with two sheets still together. Place them on a piece of baking paper and cut a tree shape through both sheets.

Peel the top sheet off and set it aside. Spread the lower sheet of pastry with Nutella, leaving space along the edges so that it doesn’t get too messy when you’re twisting it later. Place the second sheet of pastry back on top.

Score up the centre of the triangle to use as a guide. Cut horizontally through both pastry sheets to create a series of ‘branches’ for your tree.

Twist each ‘branch’ of the tree. Brush the tree with the beaten egg and then place in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until puffed and golden.

Let it cool and then decorate it with berries for baubles. Set it on a platter and guests can twist a piece off to eat with their fruit. Delicious!
