Nutella-Mallow Pillow Pockets

When I tell you this, take me very seriously…, don’t walk to your nearest grocery store and make these today! I knew I wanted to make a Nutella treat the other day and when this simple idea came to mind I had no idea how crazy good it would be!

The pastry with the gooey disappearing marshmallow and nutella make for a treat that you just must try for yourself!


Can you handle this line up?! Sorry, I forgot to add one egg for the egg wash 🙂

Um….this stuff should be illegal. I think one could devour the entire jar in one sitting! Well, maybe just me 🙂

Ok, easy easy. Spread your Nutella onto center of each pastry square, top with mini marshmallows and fold over!

Take a little fork and crimp those edges, nice and firm.

Next, you’ll brush with an egg white wash and sprinkle with sugar, mmmmm!

Get a load of this! How crazy good does that look baking in the oven? Wait until you sink your teeth into it 🙂

I sprinkled mine with a little powdered sugar 🙂

Oooey, gooey and delish!


Nutella-Mallow Pillow Pockets

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

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut each square of pastry into 4 equal size pieces (I trimmed mine just a little). Spread a couple tablespoons of Nutella spread onto the center of each pastry leaving 1/2 inch border around edges. Top each with about 12-15 mini marshmallows and fold over to form a little triangle. Crimp edges firmly with the tines of a fork. Brush with egg white wash then sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until pastry just turns golden. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes, sprinkle with powdered sugar then dig in!

8 pockets


Have a great new week! See you soon!

    i lovvvvvvve nutella, these look so tasty, I would love to make these for thanksgiving!

  18. 18

    How did the marshmallows fare inside that puff pastry? I made something similar once – my puff pastry s’mores- and ended up having to squeeze a little marshmallow creme on top since the marshmallows melted into oblivion inside the puff pastry! Nutella is a great idea for stuffing inside there 🙂

      Jenny says:

      Hi Lori,
      The marshmallow actually gave a perfect chewy consistency to the Nutella which I didn’t expect. Some of it oozed out, but what was left inside was delish! I’m afraid to make these again because I could easily eat a whole plate without blinking an eye! Lol!

    Leaving for the market to get the ingredients as instructed; it’s only 7pm~ dessert time! Will report back on the results…if I can get myself off the couch after eating them all!! I love Nutella. I love puff pastry. I love to be praised by family, friends, and neighbors that think I measured and labored for hours when it really only took minutes!

  37. 37

    I should not have stopped by right before bedtime. Now I’m craving Nutella. Great idea!

    Mrs. L says:

    Seriously brilliant. But then it said Nutella so what’s not to like? LOL

  43. 43

    Really, Wow, Thats all I can say.. I remember exactly in England where I was standing when I tried Nutella for the first time. I am very excited about trying this delicious treat. It reminds me of a Chocolate Cake my wife made for me not to long ago (
    Thank you!!!

    Natasha says:

    Oh believe me!! It is possible:) I consumed a half of a jar of Nutella when I was in Italy last summer in less than 10 minutes..and I’m 15 and under 100 lbs..haha it is COMPLETELY possible. 🙂

  45. 45
    Nicole Peck says:

    Oh my word. I LOVE Nutella and am always stumped at ways to use them other than on toasted mini bagels from Costco (which is the only thing I do with it). LOL I MUST try these.

  46. 46
    Crissy says:

    I thought these were very good. Atleast the part that I could eat. This is the first time I’ve used puff pastry and something must have been wrong with it or I did something wrong because the inner layers didn’t bake up. Is there such a thing as bad puff pastry?

  47. 47

    Love Nutella and I think I have all the ingredients on hand – looks like a delicious after-school snack.

  48. 48
    Terri says:

    When my daughters were young they would wrap canned biscuits around marshmallows – it had a “disappearing center”. They loved them! These pillow pockets take it one step further with the extra goodness of Nutella and a much better outer crust! My daughter (who is now all grown up) wants these waiting for her when she visits for Thanksgiving!

  49. 49

    OH. MY. GOSH. It’s like you’ve known me all my life and posted just what I need right now. Those look absolutely amazing and I will definitely be making them asap. I’ll post them on my blog but give you full credit and link it to your blog. Love it, thank you!

  50. 50

    Wow this looks delicious. Cant wait to try it for my kids or even a game night with my friends!

  51. 51

    I’ll bet your kids pledged their undying love to you when they tasted these treats!

    I tried these last night and LOVED them! I was wondering how they might be with jam or lemon curd instead of nutella. Any thoughts on that? Thanks!

    Amy says:

    Jenny, random question…but where did you get the printed napkins in your photos? They are just my style! Can’t wait to try the recipe for these…I often makes smores with nutella in place of chocolate, but these will be even better with the puff pastry crust!

  69. 69
    Stephen says:

    Can’t help thinking these would be even better if you actually rolled out the puff pastry lightly so it had a more even rise and delicate texture. Straight from the box, the texture tends to be a bit heavy and thick. You’d also be able to get more than 8 from a box, but perhaps would need to use less filling. I shall have to experiment! 🙂 I wonder who on earth will eat the test batches! 🙂

    john b says:

    really? and what’s the transfat and sugar content of these? yeah, nice and healthy. go ahead…feed them to your overweight offspring so they can take after their overweight parents and add another burden to society.

    the only good thing about fat people is that they tend to not live very long so they end up costing society less money.

    I just made these. I’m gonna have to try again later this week. I’m not sure what I did wrong. Maybe I didn’t leave them in the oven long enough (27 minutes) they were golden brown and looked amazing. Then I ate one and it wasn’t flaky. delicious and gooey though. good enough for me to want to attempt this again. Good thing I stocked up on Nutella at Costco.

    These look terrible. Not the recipe. We are literally looking at them right now and they are visually hideous. There is chocolate evereywhere. We have not tasted them yet.

    We have just tasted the ugly ones. We are crying into each other’s arms. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Or a really ugly “pastry” exploding with caramelized nutella by how detestable it looks.

    Anywho, thanks for this scrumdiddlyumptious recipe, Jenny. We will find a way to personally repay you. Soon.

    OK. Makes only 8. Double would be 16. Good. Three jars of Nutella. Yes, three. Two for the double recipe and one for eating while making the treats so I know I will have enough Nutella for the treats!
