What’s the Project? These easy French beignets taste amazing and are super simple to make, but the best part is that they are filled with Nutella for a sweet surprise!

How many movies have a scene filmed at the base of the Eiffel Tower, the lights twinkling in the background as the sun sets over the Seine river? It’s a classic scene from any love story…and last week it was mine!
I’ve dreamed for years of traveling to Europe and exploring the cities there and finally, we planned a trip (and took the whole family) this summer. We started our trip in London and then spent a few days in Paris and late one night after the kids were settled in, my husband and I took an electric scooter ride down the road where we stayed to the Seine river and watched the sunset and the lights of the Eiffel Tower come on and yes, it was as magical as it sounds.
Since Paris is fresh on my mind, this recipe is inspired by the dessert filled streets of that city and the foods we ate there. These are Nutella filled French beignets and the best part…they’re really easy to make!
You know I love using Rhodes dough for baking because it’s not only easy (just pull the dough out of the freezer and let it thaw and you’re all set?! Yes, please!) but it also tastes great and my whole family loves it.
So these French beignets are made using Rhodes Bake N Serv Frozen Dinner Rolls and take 20-30 minutes to make is all. Perfect for a brunch or a fun dessert party!
French Beignets Recipe:
The last day that we were in Paris it was 100 degrees and humid and we had no options but to pull our luggage to the train station to store and then trudge around the city melting in the heat. Let’s just say that moods weren’t the greatest.
Then we found a cute little Parisian cafe and it was air-conditioned so we settled in for a long, yummy lunch! I wasn’t going to leave Paris without trying hot chocolate (my love of hot chocolate runs very deep) even though it was so hot, so we ordered hot chocolate for everyone and a round of French beignet that happened to be filled with Nutella.
So even if you can’t go to Paris today and even if you think it’s too hot to drink hot chocolate right now, at least you can have these fabulous beignets!
These French beignets will be a sweet treat for us to remember our fun trip to Paris and great for you to pretend you are there too!
