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.
- 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.
