Crescent rolls filled with Nutella and a cheesecake filling…you know you want this for breakfast.


  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls (225g each)
  • 1 package cream cheese, softened (225g)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening


Step 1

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and egg until creamy. Unroll the crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Press two triangles together to form a rectangle.

Step 2

Spoon a large tablespoon of Nutella down the right side of the centre. Repeat with a large tablespoon of cheesecake filling down the left side of the centre.

Step 3

Fold the edges of the rolls over the filling. Press the seams together at the middle and the end. Flip the roll over so that the seam is underneath. Gently twist the roll. (This step can also be skipped if you want to just leave them as a roll.) Press together any seams that come undone. Bake at 375* for 10-11 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

Step 4

Place white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat. Stir until creamy. Place in a plastic baggie with one tip cut off. Drizzle over the cooled twists. Let set. Refrigerate leftovers.
