Nutella filled biscuit bites

I love making desserts from scratch, but sometimes I just don’t have time, or simply I just feel like eating something homemade, quick, and warm.

These are super easy, made with store-bought biscuit dough, shaped into small bites, and filled with hazelnut spread.

They’re so simple -for every baking skill level- and quick to make; you could potentially have one finished bite in your hand in 30 minutes!

Ingredients you will need to make these Nutella filled Biscuit bites

This recipe calls for only 4 very simple ingredients, found in any big grocery store:

  • Store-bought Jumbo biscuits. These are the foundation, providing a soft, fluffy texture that contrasts delightfully with the creamy filling. When baked, they puff up, creating a light and airy shell around the Nutella.
  • Nutella spread. This brings the rich, chocolatey hazelnut flavor that’s the heart of the bite. It melts slightly when heated, becoming even more gooey and delicious, creating a luscious center.
  • Unsalted butter. Used to coat the outside of the biscuits, butter adds moisture and richness, ensuring the outside is as flavorful as the inside. It also helps the sugar to stick, adding a crispy, caramelized exterior.
  • Granulated sugar. Rolling the butter-coated biscuits in sugar gives them a sweet crust that caramelizes slightly when baked. This adds a bit of crunch and a sparkling appearance, making the bites not just tasty but also visually appealing.

Add-ins and Substitutions

  • Fruit Preserves: Instead of Nutella, fill the center with your favorite jam or fruit preserve for a fruity twist.
  • Peanut Butter: For a different nutty flavor, peanut butter can be a delicious filling. You can also mix it with Nutella for a peanut butter-chocolate version.
  • Cream Cheese: A small dollop of cream cheese mixed with a little sugar and vanilla can be a creamy, tangy filling alternative.
  • Cinnamon Sugar: Mix cinnamon into your sugar coating for a warm, spiced flavor that pairs wonderfully with the hazelnut chocolate spread.
  • Nuts: Finely chopped hazelnuts or almonds sprinkled on top or mixed into the Nutella can add a nice crunch and intensify the nutty flavor.

Feel free to experiment with these ideas based on your preferences. Mixing and matching different fillings and toppings can lead to all sorts of delicious variations on the original recipe!

How to make these biscuits, with a how-to video

Here’s a short video showing how to make these biscuit bites, step-by-step.

Start by Preheat oven to 350 F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Split each biscuit into two pieces. Then, use your hands to press and shape each piece into a round, flat shape, making sure to smooth out any gaps or wrinkles. This helps your treats look more round and uniform. You’ll need a package of store-bought Jumbo biscuits for this.

Bake them for about 9-10 minutes, or until they start to turn golden brown at the bottom. After taking them out of the oven, let them cool down on a wire rack.

Next, lightly brush the top of each cooled biscuit bite with some melted butter, and then sprinkle them with sugar. This will need about 1/4 cup of unsalted butter and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar.

To add the Nutella, scoop about 1/2 cup of it into a piping bag that has a small round tip. Create a small hole on the side of each biscuit bite using the handle of a wooden spoon or something similar. Then, pipe the Nutella into the hole, filling each biscuit bite with the delicious hazelnut spread.

Expert tips for the best Nutella-filled biscuit bites

  • Uniformity is Key: When you’re dividing and shaping your biscuits, try to keep them as uniform in size as possible. This ensures they bake evenly and finish at the same time, preventing any from overcooking or undercooking.
  • Baking Temperature and Time: Keep an eye on your oven temperature and baking time. Ovens can vary, so start checking your bites a minute or two before the suggested baking time ends. You’re looking for a light golden color on the bottom, which indicates they’re done but still soft and moist inside.
  • Cooling: Let the biscuit bites cool on a wire rack but not completely if you’re filling them post-baking. Filling them while slightly warm can help the Nutella melt just a little inside, making for a gooey, delicious center.
  • Storage Tips: If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two. For longer storage, you can refrigerate them, but let them come to room temperature before serving for the best texture and flavor.
