Nutella Ravioli



As most of you know today is one of the biggest days of the year. A day where people get together to celebrate a national past time... eating Nutella. Happy Word Nutella Day. I bet you thought I was going to say something about a football game that is happening today.
I normally don't make desserts, but with Valentines Day coming up and Nutella Day I decided to rerun this recipe. One of the few desserts I have ever made up.

Nutella Ravioli

5 oz frozen raspberries
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp cornstarch
2 tbs Nutella
2 tbs plain low fat yogurt
3 egg roll wrappers, cut in 1/2 (you could use wontons, but they maybe smaller so you may want to leave whole)
1 egg
1 tsp water
Fresh raspberries for garnish
powdered sugar for garnish

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a small pan put the frozen raspberries, sugar and cornstarch. Over medium heat warm the berries and smash them with a spoon. this will create a juice. When the juice starts to boil it will thicken because of the cornstarch. Pour it through a sieve to strain the seeds out. Use this is used to dribble on the plate as a garnish. Set this aside to cool.

In a small bowl mix the Nutella and the yogurt. Make sure it is completely mixed as you want it to taste like Nutella not yogurt with Nutella in spots. Set this aside.

Take the egg and crack it in a small bowl. Add the water and mix together.

Take the 1/2 sheet of egg roll wrapper and on 1/2 of that put 1 to 1 1/2 tsp of the Nutella mixture. Then take the the egg wash and spread around the Nutella. Now fold the other half of the wrapper over the Nutella and seal. Start by pressing close to the Nutella and work outwards to get rid of air pockets. Then take a fork and press down on the edges creating a patterned edge that will seal the Nutella in. After you have made all six of these place on a cookie sheet and place in oven. Bake until wrapper starts to brown, about 8 minutes. Note the egg roll wrappers get crispy, next time I am going to try a different type of wrap to see if I can get one that is not so crisp.

Arrange on a plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar, raspberry sauce and raspberries.

    1. I didn't post on the Nutella site. When I came up with the idea I thought it was original. But now I've Googled it and there are tons of recipes for Nutella Ravioli.

  10. Made these last night again, I was a bad girl and fried them instead OMG, I felt guilty but they were really good. I think I will have to forfeit the healthier version once in awhile. They didnt make the plate with anything on them :) I have to say though they looked aweful compared to the baked ones.. either way this is a winning recipe!!
