Nutella Turnovers



It's been a while since I ate Nutella.  France of last year to be exact.  I had some Nutella Crepes while dining at a sidewalk cafe along the Rue de Rivoli.  So I thought it seemed about time to indulge in some of this creamy hazelnut spread. 

First I set my oven to 350 degrees.   I took some Phyllo dough and put about 1 Tablespoon of Nutella with a few chocolate chips.  Then I formed triangles and baked them on a cookie sheet with wax paper for about three or four minutes.  Phyllo dough is paper thin and very fragile, so these didn't take long to brown and crisp around the edges.  Follow the directions on the Phyllo dough box and cut the sheets into the size you want.  Then brush butter or oil on each sheet.  I used four small square sheets for each one and then shaped them into a triangle.  You can form the sheets to whatever shape you want and use which ever fillings you wish. 

Note:  This was my first time using Phyllo dough and I forgot to defrost it- it came frozen.  I defrosted the dough in the microwave for 30 seconds and it was fine.
