Strawberry Nutella Braid

Strawberry Nutella Braid - flavored cream cheese and Nutella in a crescent roll makes a perfect breakfast treat
I think we are all ready for Christmas.  Just a few little things left to do like wrapping the gifts and putting things in stockings.  Oh, and plan breakfast for Christmas morning.  I’m thinking about some Nutella crescent roll braids like this.  I shared this one with Something Swanky a while ago, and just realized that I never shared it here.
Do you like easy breakfast recipes?  We do too.   Easy recipes are perfect for a day when you want to spend it relaxing in your jammies with your kiddos.  This is such a simple pastry that even the kids can help make one.  My daughter loves that we braid this just like we braid her hair.

I love that this Nutella braid can be made and eaten in under 30 minutes.  Just make sure to let it cool slightly before digging in…hot Nutella isn’t your friend, no matter how much you think it is 😉
First unroll the dough, press the seams and cut the sides.  Then spread with filling, and fold over the strips. Don’t let all those steps scare you away from trying this recipe.  It sounds complicated, but it really isn’t.
For this one I had a jar of Nutella just begging to be made into breakfast again.  Add in a flavored cream cheese and you have a simple 3 ingredient breakfast the whole family will enjoy.  No flavored cream cheese?  You could stir a little bit of jelly into plain cream cheese for a fun twist.  Ok, now I’m thinking a peanut butter and jelly one sounds pretty good…or a peanut butter and honey cream cheese???  So many different ways to enjoy this easy braid.

One of the best things about these braids is that they are great the next day too.  There are so many days that I make a braid up in the afternoon and then refrigerate them for the next morning.  You can eat them cold, or warm a slice for 10 seconds in the microwave.  Breakfast is ready in no time at all…which means more time trying to pry toys out of their packaging on Christmas morning:-)

Strawberry Nutella Braid

Strawberry cream cheese, nutella, and crescent roll braid...a fast and easy breakfast for your family.


1 can crescent rolls (8 oz.)
1/4 c. strawberry cream cheese
1/4 c. Nutella spread
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. milk


  1. Roll out the crescent rolls and press together the seams. Spread the cream cheese down the center of the rolls, staying about two inches from each side. Carefully spread the Nutella on top of the cream cheese. Using a sharp knife, make cuts about 1 1/2 inches apart along both sides of the rolls, stopping about a 1/2 inch from the filling. Alternately cross the strips on either side across the filling. Tuck the end under and press to seal. Bake at 375* for 12-14 minutes. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle over the braid and top with sprinkles. Cut into 10 - 12 slices.
