Nutella and Jam Roll-Ups Pinwheel Dessert Snack Sandwiches

Pin It Now!

Did you all catch yesterday's post on a WHOLE BUNCH of Black Forest Ham and Brie Sandwiches (with a surprise crunchy ingredient)?  I went into detail how to make these for a crows and still make them affordable.

Well this is the dessert version of that post.

This is a handy little idea. At some point in your cooking life you will be asked to whip up a tray of finger food dessert. From a formal British afternoon Tea to B-day parties to wedding or baby showers to Church clean up day (a dozen kind souls show up on a Saturday morning to give the Church building a good scrubbing in time for Easter season), or of course your standard Family Gathering, PotLuck meals or Church socials.
They may not be the prettiest plate of dessert food ever, but they disappear quick.  They are incredibly EASY (only 3 ingredients), FAST to put together (feeds 25 people), but most important... DELICIOUS!

Hey, it's NUTELLA!

OK... Here's what I did...

Nutella Roll-Ups

  • 8 Large Burrito Size Flour Tortilla
  • 8 (eight) 1/4 Cup per Tortilla (2 Cups total) Nutella
  • 16 TBS (2 per Tortilla) Raspberry Jam
Cooking Directions
  1. Lay out a Tortilla
  2. Slather an even layer of Nutella
  3. Slather an even layer of Raspberry Jam on the nutella
  4. Roll up the slathered Tortilla
  5. Pop them in the freezer for an hour
  6. Slice in 1 inch bite size pieces
  7. Serve Chilled and ENJOY!
Did you catch the hint???

Assemble them first, roll them up and then freeze for an hour before cutting them.

Makes them just solid enough to cut without all the goo gushing out the sides while you slice.

One last hint, the edges may need a brush of water to help them to stay closed.

That's it... EASY PEASY and DELICIOUS! 


This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
