Espresso Hazelnut Pull-Apart Mini Bread | Life, Love, and Good Food

My life has been a little crazy lately (I’ll share more about that in a few weeks) and last Saturday morning I woke up without a cooking plan. What that meant for this weekend food blogger was that I needed to think fast if I was going to stick to my self-imposed twice-a-week posting schedule.With so many things to do, I knew sifting through cookbooks and grocery shopping might not be a luxury for my day. My fall back plan? Work with what’s on hand….a can of Pillsbury® Grands!®, a partial jar of Nutella, and King Arthur’s Espresso Powder….bam! Espresso Hazelnut Pull-Apart Mini Bread!

Espresso Hazelnut Pull-Apart Mini Bread | Life, Love, and Good Food

I used my veggie pan (usually for baking stuffed peppers) to bake up individual “monkey breads” incorporating two of my favorite tastes — chocolate and coffee. Pat out the individual Pillsbury® Grands!® biscuits and spread with a teaspoon of Nutella, then roll them up like a jelly roll and slice. Shake them up in a ziplock bag filled with a sugar-espresso powder mixture, drop them in the pans and bake. The final touch is a drizzle of my easy mocha glaze — blogging crisis averted! Enjoy your day, friends!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder

Mocha glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  5. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden. Immediately invert onto a wire rack. Cool for 5 minutes before drizzling with the glaze.

Mocha Glaze

These little breads look FABULOUS, Sheila! These look like something that would be served at a fancy brunch! No one would believe that it started with a can of biscuits! p.s. I hope all of your "crazy" has been good crazy and that your foot is fully healed!

Thanks, Wendy! I'm definitely on the mend :) finally weaning myself out of the boot and doing PT to get my range of motion back.

Looks wonderful. How much cocoa powder do you use in the glaze. The recipe doesn't have an amount. Just curious.

Oops! Thanks for pointing that out...I've just fixed the post. Use 2 tablespoons cocoa powder in the glaze.
