[donotprint]Ok my friends…I think you all have been holding out on me! Why in world have you not told me about Nutella?? Really!! I’m totally addicted! So, maybe I should thank you for not filling me in on this totally chocolately goodness!

We’ve had Nutella on our toast, in a sandwich, on cookies and yep…even by the spoonful! But my favorite so far…these Nutella Napoleons with creamy french vanilla pudding, Cool Whip and strawberries! Can I have a second helping please?

You all know I love creating desserts that are very easy to put together but look like you spent a long time on them. These Nutella Napoleons start with the new Pillsbury Crescent Sheets. Just like the original flaky crescent rolls, but you don’t have to press together the seams or mess with shaping them. Just roll it out and bake it up!


Nutella Napoleons Recipe:

  • Pillsbury Crescent Sheets
  • Nutella Spread
  • Vanilla Pudding, instant, small box {I used French Vanilla}
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • Cool Whip, 1 cup plus a little for garnish
  • Strawberries


Bake Crescent Sheets according to the directions on the package. Let cool. While the crescents are baking, mix the pudding according to the box, place in fridge until set, about 5 minutes. Fold in 1 cup Cool Whip and place back in fridge.

Slice strawberries and prepare strawberry fans by slicing a strawberry, being sure not to slice all the way through the top {green part}.

After the crescent sheets are cooled, use a serrated knife to cut into squares. Spread Nutella on top and bottom of squares. Spoon pudding mixture and then add sliced strawberries. Add top crescent.

For garnish, spread a small amount of Nutella, a dab of Cool Whip and a strawberry fan.


If you LOVE Nutella…you are gonna LOVE these Napoleons!
