Finger foods for kids' birthdays are great, but what about something different from the cocktail frankfurts, party pies and sausage rolls? Our Air Fryer Nutella and Peanut Butter Pinwheel Bites are yummy. And a great addition or alternative to normal finger foods.
The combination of Nutella and peanut butter is fantastic, but if you are not a fan of peanut butter, you can have Nutella on its own.
These are also excellent snacks for the kids, even something to put in their lunch boxes for school.
And the best part, they are super quick and easy to make.
To make the Air Fryer Nutella and Peanut Butter Pinwheel Bits, all you need is:
- Smooth Peanut Butter
- Puff Pastry
If you are using frozen pastry, make sure you thaw it first.
Then start by spreading a layer of smooth peanut butter all over the sheet of puff pastry.
Then spread a layer of Nutella over the top. Try not to go too thick with the Nutella, or that will overpower the peanut butter flavour.
Starting from the bottom of the pastry sheet, gently begin to roll upwards.
I find starting in the middle and using my hand's side makes it easy to roll the pastry.
Once rolled, cut in half and half again. You will find that when you cut, the ends will come together. If you gently roll each portion back and forth, you will create more of a roll shape.
Stand each one up and baste with a beaten egg.
Preheat your air fryer at 180 C on manual mode for two minutes.
Once preheated, spray the bottom with non-stick spray.
Place the Nutella and Peanut Butter Pinwheel Bits in the air fryer, standing up and cook for 10 minutes at 180 C.
Once cooked, place on a plate and serve.
You can eat these hot or cold, and you can even add a light coating of icing sugar to them also.
