banana-nutella chaussons

These Banana-Nutella Chaussons are a take on traditional French puff pastry turnovers that are usually filled with apples. Dories says chaussons are most often breakfast or snack treats, but they are pretty amazing for dessert, too, especially when they are filled with a combo of gooey melted chocolate and bananas. Maybe even more so when you replace the straight-up chocolate in the filling with a generous amount of Nutella, like I did here. Things got a little wild in the oven, and my chaussons pretty much erupted, even though I egg washed and sealed them well. C’est la vie…the delicious filling and flaky layers just could not be contained! My evil genius dessert brain spotted an opportunity and decided a scoop of salted caramel ice cream would be perfect tucked into the opened sides.

  3. That sounds like a delicious combination!

  4. Yum – the salted caramel icecream would have been so good paired with these.

  5. I LOVE how you rolled with the burst pastry…it looks like you meant to do that…like an ice cream cone! Great job!!

  6. Ice cream is always a welcomed side dish. Closed or not I am sure they were delicious.
