  • 2 sheets puff pastry thawed and cut into 9-inch rounds
  • 1/2 c. Nutella
  • Zest of a large orange
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp. powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the first round of puff pastry onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Using an offset spatula, spread the Nutella over top, leaving a 1/4-inch rim around the outside uncovered. Zest the orange over top.
  • Place the second round of puff pastry over top, press gently to seal. Mark the center of the circle. Using a pastry wheel or pizza cutter, cut the circle into fourths, leaving about a half inch of uncut dough in the center. Continue by cutting the fourths into eighths, then the eighths into sixteenths. You should have sixteen sections.
  • Grab two sections and twist them away from each other three times, then press the two ends together to make a point. Repeat until you have 8 points or "arms."
  • Brush the snowflake with a light coat of egg wash, then place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and fully baked.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar, if desired.


-If you want a more pronounced orange flavor, try mixing a tablespoon of orange marmalade into the Nutella.
