Nutella and Marshmallow Turnovers

You can bake them on a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. I used a baking sheet and silicone set from Artisan Metal Works. They have a great set including a cookie sheet and silicone mat that fits the baking sheet perfectly. The turnovers came off very well with no sign of sticking. You can check out the silicone sheets at Amazon here – Artisan Metal Works Half Size Baking Sheet, Cover, and Non-Stick Mat

Total time:  55 mins
Serves: 8
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Thaw the puff pastry and if it does not come pre-rolled, roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Cut it into eight 5×5 inch squares.
  3. Spread 2 tbsp of Nutella in the middle portion of each pastry square. Drop about 12 mini marshmallows on top of the Nutella.
  4. Whisk together the egg white and the water.
  5. Brush some of the egg wash around the border of the square. Fold over the turnover and gently press down along the side with your fingers to make sure there is an even seal. Use a fork to crimp all the edges so the filling will not leak out.
  6. Brush some egg wash on top of each turnover. Sprinkle some sugar on top.
  7. Place the turnovers on a baking sheet, leaving at least 1 inch space between them.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is lightly browned around the edges.

PRIME DAY IS COMING!!!

amazon-prime-day-2016

With so many people missing PRIME DAY last year because they were “not a member”; I’m here to tell you that I have a work around for this year.  Now, before we get to that your probably wondering what PRIME DAY is….  It is basically like Black Friday and Cyber Monday but with twice as much inventory combined!

 

Now, here’s the tricky part and the reason why so many people missed out on these deals last year.  In order to participate in Prime Day, you MUST be an Amazon Prime Member.  Keep reading because I’m going to tell you how to get access to Prime Day deals without spending a penny!  But first let me tell you what Amazon offers to it’s Prime members EVERY day of the year:

  • Unlimited FREE 2 day shipping with NO minimum order size!
  • Movie, TV, & Music streaming. (In a Netflix-style)
  • Borrow Kindle Books.

For an Amazon Prime Membership they charge $99 per year.  ($49 if your a college student)

In my opinion, it’s well worth it considering Netflix costs $119.88 per year but you don’t get free unlimited 2 day shipping, eBooks, or music with that.

Here’s how to get the Prime Day access without spending a penny:

If you’ve never tried the Amazon Prime Membership before, you can get a free 30-day trial — and that trial membership qualifies you for Prime Day savings PLUS you get all the Prime member perks for the full 30 days FREE.

If you’re a college student, you can get a six-month free trial of Amazon Prime THEN if you’d like to keep it just pay the $49 at the student discount price of %50 off.

 

Amazon App…. Will I need it?

The Amazon App is one I’d place into the “Tips and Tricks” pile of this Prime ordeal.  It can be very challenging to keep up with the deals that interest you, especially those scheduled to begin later in the day. If you forget, you might miss out!

The App lets you track upcoming deals and you will receive notifications when they’re about to start. It’s compatible for Fire (natch), Android and iOS in their associated app stores.
