Kid’s calzone – with Nutella

calzoneIf you’d like to earn a few brownie points with your children or grandchildren, these little bites of deliciousness will certainly help! Calzone is traditionally savoury, but dough and chocolate go beautifully together. Next time you have small visitors coming (or anyone with a sweet tooth), have a go at these!

To make eight calzones, you will need:

1 tub Nutella
1 egg, lightly beaten

For the dough
2 cups self raising plain flour
1 cup natural yoghurt
1 tbsp brown sugar
Pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon sugar


Using the dough paddle, on your food processor, place the flour, yoghurt and sugar and a pinch of salt and blend for 10 to 20 seconds until dough forms.

Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured bench, and knead gently to form a smooth, very soft pastry. If it seems a little wet, a light dusting of flour will fix it.

Place the dough in a bowl, cover with glad wrap and rest for 30 minutes. Once it has rested, divide into small golf ball sized portions.

Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured work surface into circle shapes.

Place a spoonful of Nutella in the centre of each circle of pastry.

Brush the edges with a little water and fold over to create half moon shapes. Press the edges to seal.

Brush the top with beaten egg, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Transfer to a lightly greased tray and bake in a preheated 220C oven for 15 minutes or until they are golden. Serve with icecream, and remember to let them cool a little as the nutella is extremely hot inside!
