Nutella Croffle – A Croissant x Waffle


This recipe is based on a love story, between 2 of my favourite things – croissants and waffles. Oh, and Nutella! It’s called a Croffle, and I have decided to fill it with Nutella to produce quite possibly the easiest and most delicious dessert I’ve ever made.


I love trying to shove pretty much anything edible in my waffle iron to see the result (for example, these Panettone Waffles) and after successful creating a DIY Nutella Cronut a few years ago using puff pastry, I knew this could be a fun experiment.


I stumbled across this video on Youtube which first coined the term “Croffle” and I instantly knew a Nutella version had to happen. I used a slightly different technique – cutting each puff into a seperate rectangle and layering them together like a sandwich, while she uses one sheet per croffle, folded over. Personally, I think having 4 cut sides per Croffle results in 4 times the amount of crispy, puffed, flaky edges – which can only be a good thing.


As you may have noticed, I am kind of Nutella obsessed. From Nutella Stuffed Choc Chip Cookies to 3 Ingredient Nutella Donuts, from Banana and Nutella Muffins to Nutella Hazelnut Fudge, I have something for every hardcore Nutella lover out there.

And as it just so happens to be World Nutella Day on 5th February (that’s today!) I knew this was the perfect recipe to share.



Now, back to the Croffle. Think layers and layers of flakey puff pastry, crisped up in a waffle iron, filled with oozing hot molten Nutella. And you can have one in your mouth in around 5 minutes. Now we’re talking, right?

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • ½ cup of Nutella
  1. Thaw your puff pastry sheets on the bench until pliable.
  2. Preheat your waffle maker.
  3. Depending on the size of your waffle maker, trim the puff to fit. I trimmed mine into 10x11cm rectangles and got 4 rectangles per puff pastry sheet.
  4. Place the first 2 puff sheets onto your waffle maker, top each sheet with a tablespoon of Nutella, place the second 2 sheets of puff on top and close the waffle maker. You are essentially making toasted sandwiches, but with pastry, and in a waffle iron!
  5. Allow the croffles to cook until golden and crispy, it took my waffle maker 5 minutes.
  6. Repeat the process with your remaining puff rectangles and Nutella, until you have 4 waffle sandwiches.
  7. Eat piping hot and enjoy!


And the result? It’s actually heaven. The puff pastry makes the waffle impossibly crisp, the hot Nutella makes a mess in the best way possible and I would have this for breakfast every day if I could. Let’s make Croffles a thing!
