nutella cream cheese samosas with chocolate drizzle

Hello there!

Phew, I didn’t abandon blogging (which I have a tendency to do so every now and then).  I’ve just been super duper busy.  We are expecting our fourth child in less than a month inshaAllah (god-willing), so you can understand how busy it can get. After giving birth three times, you would think I would be pro at it already.  The reality is that every single time it’s a different experience and another never ending list of things to do before the bundle of joy arrives. Alhamdulillah, I’m enjoying every bit of it, umm except the sleeping part.

..And my three little boys are impatiently waiting for “new baby” to arrive. They talk about how they are going to play with the baby and hold him/her and share their toys. It’s beautiful to see the strong bond they already share with their sibling to be…even though baby is not here yet.

Anyway that was a little update on my life…now lets talk about these other babies.

These samosas are deadly delicious. This recipe is kid friendly and perfect snack for any time of the day. I like to have them with a cup of tea. Nutella pairs perfectly with cream cheese. I love the tanginess of cream cheese and intensity of chocolaty rich Nutella. You really can’t go wrong with this one!

You will need:

  • 1 package samosa wrappers, thawed
  • 1/2 cup nutella
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

For drizzling:

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate or dark chocolate + 1 tsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400 F

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

For the filling, combine nutella, cream cheese, and vanilla.

Fold and fill each pastry sheet with a tsp of nutella mixture.
