As the cold weather creeps up, warm baked goods are a must for winter survival. These Nutella pocket pies requires a few common ingredients you likely have lying around the house, which makes for a great low-budget dessert.

This recipe uses specific toppings, but feel free to mix and match fillings fit to your preference. Pocket pies are a hit at events due to the fusion of sweet flavors that hit the tastebuds at once. This simplistic idea is arguably one of the easiest recipes to turn gourmet. You'd never have guessed a college student with a beginner skill level in the kitchen concocted such a dessert.

Nutella pocket pies are made to be served ASAP, you know, the kind that you sneak before they've even cooled on the tray. If you decide to wait, they heat up as if they were just coming out of the oven. If you're feeling like you have the will power, you can save the leftovers as an on-the-go snack, but personally, I've never experienced any leftovers to bag for the next day.
