So right out of the bat I’m going to tell you this chocolate filled puff pastry is so easy to make, it almost feels like you’re cheating. When you take it out of the oven you’ll feel like a magician, seriously. It takes like 1 minute to prepare, and the finished product looks like a delicate pastry you’d see at a fancy bakery. Did I say it also tastes like something you’d buy at a fancy bakery?!
Let me just give you a quick description on what it’s like to take a bite of this heavenly pastry. Just imagine feeling the warm pastry in your hand and as you take a bite, you hear the soft crunch of the buttery puff pastry as your teeth dig into each layer. As if that wasn’t delicious enough, then imagine the warm melted chocolate hit your tongue. The flaky pastry, the warm melted chocolate and the toasted almonds make an incredible trio in your mouth as you enjoy the master piece that literally took you 1 minute to prepare.
This was one of the desserts that got me interested in baking. I’ve always loved cooking and baking, but I had never put enough effort into it to be good at it. I was always just ok. Sometimes what I made was edible and sometimes it was just a complete disaster. But it honestly didn’t even bother me when I failed because I just loved the whole baking process. I honestly love making the food just a tiny bit more than eating it. Does that make me a weirdo? Probably
Anyway, when I saw this recipe I thought it just looked so easy that it would be really hard to mess up. So I made it and boy was everyone impressed with this one. I felt so sneaky because it was like the easiest thing to make and everyone loved it!
Moral of the story: you need this in your life.
