Need an easy yet highly effective dessert for taco night or that Cinco de Mayo party your hosting? Boom. Nutella and Marshmallow Churro Donut Panini!
Let me try to explain to you why I won’t ever be skinny. Here’s how my brain works…
So I was making those Mini Chocolate Churros with PB Dipping Sauce the other day. And then I was thinking… man, it would be great if I could fill churros with something. Oooo, nutella! But I don’t know how to pull off that kind of culinary magic (I’m not Dominique Ansel, after all).
Ermagherd! What if I take those Brown Butter Baked Churro Donuts I made last year, stuff ’em with nutella and marshmallow, and then throw ’em in my panini maker. That would make for one heck of a tasty treat. …see, skinny and I don’t mix.
And so, my friends, this Nutella and Marshmallow Churro Donut Panini was born. Thank you brain, for always thinking of sweet goodness instead of things like, oh I don’t know… boring stuff like bills, cleaning, and exercising.
Nutella and Marshmallow Churro Donut Panini
- Total Time: 21 minutes
- Yield: 6 Donut Panini
- Brown Butter Baked Churro Donuts
- Marshmallow Fluff
- Make Brown Butter Baked Churro Donuts according to recipe.
- Heat your panini maker/sandwich press. Meanwhile, carefully slice donuts in half lengthwise with a serrated knife. Slather on a thin layer of nutella on one half, and marshmallow fluff on the other. Place the halves together and cook on your panini press/sandwich maker for approximately 1 minute, until the sugar on the donut caramelizes a bit and the filling gets all ooey-gooey (yes, that’s a technical cooking term). Let cool slightly, then devour.
- Prep Time: 20 mins
- Cook Time: 1 min

These are over the top scrumptious brother.
Wow. A churro panini?! I’ll take 3 please 🙂
Hahaha now you’re talking!
You just pretty much put everything amazing into one single recipe. I’m on board with that! I’m also going to throw away my scale and be happy about it. Well done, Chris! #WolfpackChurroFactory
Yea, who needs scales anyway? Bring on the sweatpants and mesh shorts (i.e. elastic waistbands) hahaha
why be skinny when you can go BEASTMODE and eat these ridiculous things all damn day!!!! love the way your brain works Chris, don’t ever change 😉 – pinned and fbk sharing later!
Exactly! Skinny is overrated, anyway LOL!
Dude, High Five! This is Epic!
Thanks so much!
Your brain is totally in the right place! These look AWESOME. Also I’m loving your styling in these photos, I wish I just had a barrel lying around lol I’d use it for photos all the time!
Thanks Beth! It’s actual a planter that I just bought for our patio… and then was like wait a minute: I’m gonna turn this thing upside down and use it quick for these photos first!
Haha – I pin stuff like this with plans to attempt it at home someday. This is why I also won’t ever be skinny. ;P
We might not be skinny, but we’ll be happy and well-fed 🙂
What is hilarious is that I saw this picture, read the title and thought, “Whhhhhaaaat?!!? Is Chris the new Dominique Ansel?!”. For what it’s worth, this is waaaaay better than the cookie shot. And I love me that cookie shot. So much going on here. I am getting light headed just thinking about it. For serious. You’re bringing me one on Tues, right?! Okay fine, we can go to Dough instead.
I AM POSTING HEALTHY CHURROS TOMORROW! Whoaa! Great minds! 😉
oh geeze! I can’t even look at it 🙂 BEST DESSERTS EVER
