Nutella Snowflakes to Celebrate World Nutella Day!

Tortillas as an art form. Deliciousness is a bonus.
Nutella Snowflakes

I remember the first time I tasted Nutella. That bite literally made me swoon. Really. And now, I use it in every single way possible.

One of the fun things I have done with my kids when they were little was to make snowflakes out of tortillas. Then, all you do is toast them until they are solid, brush them with melted chocolate and then sprinkle generously with powdered sugar for a fun (and messy) treat/work of art.

When the makers of those fabulous uncooked tortillas, Tortillaland, announced they were having a “tortilla art” contest, I knew I had to submit these.

I am thrilled to announce that my art/snack I made with my kids won first place in Tortilla Land’s contest!


All you do is fold up a tortilla into six parts or eight parts, just like you would if you were making a round paper snowflake. Then, you cut little squares, triangles and circles around the folds to make a snowflake. Then, unfold and toast your snowflake in a large skillet over medium low heat – turning frequently until fully crisp and toasty.

Next, brush on some melted chocolate OR some heated Nutella (my preference) with a pastry brush. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle on some powdered sugar and – Voila! – edible art to impress your friends and neighbors!

The above photo is our submission for the contest sponsored by Tortilla Land “The Art of the Fresh Tortilla”.

      Thanks, Anne. I’ll have PLENTY of raw tortillas stashed in the fridge next time you visit!

      Kate – thx! Do you remember making these? We made them once or twice when you kids were little, but don’t know if you remember them.
