Baked Rice Paper Nutella Rolls

Uh oh, I almost neglected the Nutella Challenge this month.  Don’t worry, I came up with something really fast and yummy last week-only problem was finding time to post!  I get little bits of time here and there and lately it’s been harder for me to get on the computer for this food blog that I love to do.  Sadly, lately it’s also been tough finding time to read other good food stuffs blogs – can’t wait until it slows down to spend more time with the subject of food!  There are so many things I’ve already got planned to write about and/or review!!!  What did I decide to do for this challenge?  Wrap up some Nutella in a rice paper and bake it.  It was a tasty little treat, quick and easy!  Honestly, I’ll bet it would be even better deep fat fried but I’ve never deep fat fried anything in my life and doubt that I ever will.  First of all, I think it’s scary and second, it’s just so bad for you!!!  I think these would be fun for a little get-together with the girls.  A nice, cute little treat that isn’t that bad for you!

Ingredients:

  • Pacific Natural Foods Hazelnut milk (or water-as I suspect the added hazelnut flavor is minimal – but use it if you have it, the drink alone is strong)
  • Rice papers
  • Nutella
  • Crispy rice cereal – I used Erewhon Gluten free crispy brown rice – it’s got more of a sturdy crunch so it holds up nicely.
  • Melted butter

Method:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • Put enough hazelnut milk (or water) in a shallow/wide bowl to dip rice papers in
  • Place a wet paper towel by the bowl
  • One at a time, soak rice paper sheet
  • When soft, remove from bowl and place on paper towel
  • Put some Nutella in a small line in the middle/side of rice paper
  • Sprinkle some rice cereal on Nutella
  • Roll up and place on greased cookie sheet
  • Make as many as you think will be eaten-
  • When all are on sheet – brush a little melted butter on top
  • Bake about 15-17 minutes or until golden brown – you can turn mid-way through baking for a more even crispiness – or the bottom will be chewy
  • Allow to cool for best flavor
  • Will keep for the day but not over night- then they become chewy and the rice cereal loses its crispness

I think these would also be delicious with chopped up hazelnuts and/or strawberries as well.  Have fun:)
