Meet the Sullivans: Nutella-Marshmallow Pillow Pockets

Nutella-Marshmallow Pillow Pockets

These are so easy to make you feel bad when someone tells you how good they are and you say "thank you", because you know it was just too easy to be thanked for. I found the recipe in Picky Palate recently and had to make them. I am draw to things that seem "easy" and "good", aren't you?

I made these last week the same night I made Pioneer Woman's Steak with Burgundy Sauce. I recommend both to you, especially these little beauties...

  Here is what you will need:
  • 1 package puff pastry, 2 pastry sheets thawed
  • 1 Cup Nutella spread
  • 1 Cup mini marshmallows
  • Egg white wash: 1 egg white whisked with 1 Tablespoon water
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • 2tbsp granulated sugar

The line-up. Forgot the granulated sugar, whoops!

Spread the pastry sheet out on a cookie sheet and cut into 8ths. You can see that mine are rectangular. You can probably cut the pastry up any way you like. I was fine have more smaller pieces, but if you wanted triangles, you can either make them larger (by cutting the sheet into 4ths) or trim the 8ths down to be squares.

After you've cut the pastry sheet into sections you can spoon 2-3 tbsp of Nutella on to each section. In hindsight, I would have put the Nutella a little closer to the center. The spot I put it in made "closing" the pockets a challenge. I put about 7-8 marshmallows on each section, but feel free to add as many as you see fit, or that can fit.

*Now, you'll notice I only used only one sheet of puff pastry. The first pastry sheet and I had different ideas about what it was supposed to do. I felt it should unfold to lay flat on the cookie sheet, and it felt it should refuse and mush itself into a lump. It won. Luckily, the second sheet went with the flow. 


Fold pastry in half over itself and seal edges by crimping with a fork. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle on a little granulated sugar. Pop these lovies in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pasty starts to brown. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Simple, see? Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

 We each had like 3-4 of these. They were really good. I think they would be cute for  dessert buffet or even to serve to guests after dinner with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I will definitely make these again.
