These super easy Nutella biscuits are a doddle to make. Simple, four-ingredient chocolate fork biscuits are sandwiched together with a generous splodge of Nutella. 

They take 15 minutes to make and about 10 to bake and are fabulous as an after school treat!

Vegan Nutella

This Nutella Biscuits recipe was first published in 2012 when Thinly Spread was a vegetarian blog. If you want to make this recipe vegan use one of the commercially available chocolate-hazelnut spreads or try this recipe for vegan Nutella – I use it for my Vegan Nutella Palmiers and it works really well!

Easy Sandwich Biscuits

We make fork biscuits all the time. I’m pretty sure they were the first biscuit I taught my children to make.

There is no complicated cutting out for small fingers, no dinosaur tails chopped off or bits of star biscuit left in the cutter.

Simply roll the dough into little balls, squash them with a fork and bake. It’s basically edible playdough! 

They are delicious as they are and they also make the best sandwich biscuits. 

Make them with different flavours to suit your mood!

Easy Nutella Biscuits

Let the cooked biscuits cool completely on a wire rack before spooning on your Nutella and spreading it generously to the edges.

If you try this when they are warm the chocolate hazelnut spread will simply slip off!

Do make sure you spread evenly and right to the edges so that no one gets a mouthful of disappointment and you are faced with spaniel eyes! 

Storing Fresh Biscuits

In theory, these will store well in an airtight tin for up to three days. In practice, they will vanish in a flash!
