Nutella Swirl Bread

One of the reasons I enjoy cooking is it challenges my creativity. Open the fridge to find a half empty jar of jalapenos and a couple lonely tortillas, what delicious dish can I create?

This is how Nutella Swirl Bread was born. I had a coupon for Nutella BOGO (add to cart) and biscuits were on sale (double add to cart). You can do a lot with biscuits and let's face it, Nutella is heavenly! Those Germans are culinary geniuses...I won't even mention my Bratwurst affection...there-are-no-words!

I also enjoy kid-friendly recipes and this is no exception. Simple enough for the little ones to help and a delicious snack for the family to enjoy! Divine!

Nutella Swirl Bread (yields 8 slices)
1 jar Nutella
1 can jumbo flaky biscuits (16 oz.)
1 egg
1 tablespoon water

Bust open that can of biscuits and separate. 

Combine dough until it forms a ball.

Sprinkle flour on counter (be sure to write a cheerful greeting, it makes baking more fun).

Roll out dough to your desired thickness (mine was about 1/2" thick) and spread Nutella evenly on surface of dough (be as generous as you'd like...warning, it WILL get messy).

Starting from one side, roll lengthwise. Once rolled, make a slit (all the way through) about an inch from the top all the way down to the bottom. 

Once sliced, begin to cross ends over each other (exposing the Nutella). Continue until completely braided.

Tada, you're so talented! Place on greased baking sheet. 

Mix egg and 1 tablespoon of water in small bowl and brush along top of braid (this will give it that gorgeous brown glow).

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes (or until biscuits are no longer mushy) until golden brown.

Holy moly, I've never met a bread I didn't like...with Nutella, I want this as my new BFF!

Slice and enjoy!

PS. I had to give some away because I can't be trusted! Remember my Pack Mule in the Running Shoes post? Yep, busted can of biscuits!
