As college students we know that there is not loose money floating around to go out to eat.
We also know that cafeteria food gets old and repetitive after awhile. So I am going to help you bake something delicious at a pretty cheap price!
To make Nutella pockets,you will need the following ingredients: Nutella, one can of flaky biscuits, cinnamon and sugar, any of which can be found at a grocery store of your choice.You will also need a baking sheet, a spatula, a bowl and cooking spray or oil to grease the pan.If you decide to bake these on campus, there are ovens for student use in the apartment common areas.
1. First, preheat oven to 375° and spray the baking sheet with cooking spray. If you don’t have cooking spray,wet a paper towel with vegetable oil and grease the baking sheet. It is very important to grease the sheet, or the Nutella pockets will stick.
2. Next, combine your cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and set aside. Mix to taste. Be aware that some people like more cinnamon than others,so adjust accordingly.
3. Then, open the can of biscuits and take them out on eat a time. Flatten them out and then cut them in half and flatten them out some more. That way you can get more “pockets”out of a can.
4. Take half a spoonful of Nutella and dollop it in the middle of the flattened biscuit. If you use too much Nutella, it will ooze out the sides.
5. Wet the edges of the biscuit with a little water and fold the biscuit over. Squeeze the edges to seal them.
6. Then, roll the “pockets”around in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and place on the baking sheet.
7. By now the oven should be preheated. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool slightly. As they bake, the pockets will puff up and become slightly brown. This recipe should make 16 Nutella pockets if cut in half. Eat warm and enjoy!
