Strawberry and chocolate puff pastries

So I wanted to use the other sheet of puff pastry that I had and I was kind of craving the spinach and feta again but sadly I didn’t have enough spinach. (im sure my mom and dad would love to hear that i was craving spinach lol)

But I already had my pastry sheet thawing so on to plan b; something sweet. What did I have in my closet of goodies? Milk chocolate, and what to go with it? Strawberries. Yum.

Strawberry and chocolate puff pastries

1 sheet puff pastry
Milk chocolate (enough for one square of however many you want to make)
Strawberries (I used frozen but would advise fresh. Unless you want to let them thaw out all the way which I didn’t)
1 egg
Flour (for the baking sheet)
[Oven set to 400]

I cut my sheet into 9 squares and laid them onto my floured baking sheet.

I took a piece of chocolate for every square and laid it in the middle.

then i cut the strawberries and put it on top of the chocolate, then closed them up with a fork.

[i used frozen strawberries and didnt let them thaw all the way. not necessarily a good idea, although my pastries came out good they were not as crisp as I wanted]

Took the egg and lighty brushed the tops of all the pastries.

let them cook for 10-15 min. [i should add that I should have poked holes in the top for them to breathe!- they oozed a little bit]
Oh well baking is a learning process anyway. they still tasted really good and i know how to make them better next time πŸ™‚

oooohh maybe ill sprinkle some sugar on top too ! πŸ˜€

    Yes, whenever you have something like fruit, jams even some cheeses in pastry or pies you need to make prick marks in the top to let off the steam. Bravo! I am s proud of you trying new things and eating them too. Keep it up. Cooking can be a lot of fun, trying out different recipes and adding you personal touches to them.
    Love
