It’s no secret that I love Nutella, so it should come as no surprise that these Nutella pie pops were the first thing I added to the menu for Clara’s birthday party. I changed the menu so many times, but I never wavered on my decision to include these. I knew they would be the perfect party favor, and they were the food I was most excited about leading up to the party. This, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I sampled a few in the days before the party, you know, for quality control.
With the pie dough made in advance, these sweet little pops were a cinch to make. The Nutella bakes up almost brownie like, which makes these pops totally irresistible. Of course, you can substitute Nutella with your favorite filling. The possibilities are practically endless – peanut (or other nut) butter, strawberries or other berries, apples, cherries, peaches, pumpkin. You get the idea. And while I think the pop aspect of these makes them super fun, you can obviously leave out the stick and have Nutella hand pies.
