  • 2 loaves Frozen Rhodes White Bread
  • 3/4 cup Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (Like Nutella)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 TBSP Water


  • Place two frozen Rhodes White Loaves on a large plate to thaw for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly flour a large piece of parchment paper.
  • Cut each loaf in half lengthwise.
  • Roll one half out on parchment paper into a 12" circle.
  • Spread 1/4 cup of chocolate spread in even layer over the dough circle.
  • Repeat two more times.
  • Roll out the last dough half and place it on top and gently press down on the layers.
  • Mark a 3" circle in the center using a cookie cutter or small bowl and pressing down.
  • Using a sharp knife cut the layered circle into 4 equal parts.
  • Then cut those equal parts in half, then those halves in half.
  • You will end up with 16 equal parts.
  • Take two sections side by side and twist them each away from each other three times.
  • Pinch together the ends until they make a point.
  • Repeat with the remaining sections.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the egg and water together until well combined.
  • Brush a thin layer of the egg wash over the entire dough star.
  • Using the parchment paper, transfer to a large baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.
  • Let it cool for 10 minutes then dust the entire star with powdered sugar.
  • Serve.
