Baked Rice Paper Nutella Rolls

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!


  • 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


  • 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:)

I really love that you dipped the rice paper in hazelnut milk! That is a genius touch. These look great, my husband would LOVE this!

You had me at Nutella … and I agree with Jenn, the hazelnut milk is truly inspired. I also love that you baked rather than fried here … I don’t deep fry anything either. Ick!

I know just what you mean about needing more time to write and read. My to-read-blog-list seems to grow every day, yet there are only so many hours left to do so. Sigh.

Seriously, one of the most unique recipes, evvvver! And I totally agree with you about deep frying…it’s scary! I am one of those people with the grand ability to burn water, so who even wants to imagine me with several inches of oil?!

Wow! This is something very simple and different. Perfect idea!

Mmmm these look SO good.
Love me some nutella.
This reminds me of Giada’s fried nutella ravioli, but such a healthier version- baked with rice paper rolls instead of wonton wrappers. I must try. :)

I can’t believe you’re posting these while I’m on my NO SUGAR challenge. Arrrrrrrrrgh.
Nutella is my 3rd love. (I’d say first but I might get in trouble.)

Sounds interesting! I do though agree deep frying would take those over the top.

So creative making dessert out of those rice paper sheets. I usually just make spring rolls with them.
