      I love rugelach and I love nutella, but I wasn't really loving this recipe. The cocoa powder added to the rugalech dough overtook and you couldn't taste the nutella filling. Also, the cinnamon in the filling just tasted odd to me. If I was to try this again, I would leave out the cocoa powder, and cinnamon and I really believe this would be a really good pastry.
