Before you start

Preheat the oven 200°C | Baking tray lined with parchment paper | Powerful blender

First, make the nutella

  • Blend all the homemade nutella ingredients together until smooth and a good consistency

Next, assemble the Christmas tree

  • On a baking tray lined with parchment paper, spread the nutella on a sheet of puff pasty to create a Christmas tree shaped triangle about an inch thick - there'll be some leftover but you can use this as a dipping sauce!
  • Lay the other sheet of puff pastry on top, press down slightly, then trim the excess pastry off (where there's no nutella)
  • Now make even cuts down both sides of the triangle, leaving an inch uncut in the centre, to keep the tree together
  • Twist each strip from top to bottom to create tree branches

Bake and enjoy!

  • Brush the pastry with the oil so that when it bakes it goes golden brown
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 200ºC or until well risen and golden
  • Mix the leftover nutella with a bit more nut milk to make the dipping sauce
  • Dust the tree with icing sugar and serve with the dipping sauce
