4 Ingredients Chocolate Pastry with Step-by-Step Pictures

This recipe is perfect for kids,
Actually, you can have a little fun and make it with them,
Only 4 ingredients are required...well, if you count water as one,
All you need to do is chop, fold, brush, and bake,

Ingredients (for 4)?

1 sheet of puff pastry
1 bar/4 oz of 60% bittersweet chocolate
1 egg
1 tablespoon of water


Thaw the frozen puff pastry according to package instruction,
(I simply left it at room temperature for at least 30 minutes)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit,
Line the parchment paper on a baking sheet,
It'll save some cleaning work for you later on.

Chop up the chocolate bar into smaller pieces,
You can definitely substitute that with chocolate chips -

Unfold the puff pastry,
You might need to roll it out a couple times if the surface is uneven,
Cut into 4 large pieces -

I'll use one of the square pieces as demonstration,
Put the chocolate pieces along the top and bottom parts of the pastry -

Fold the top and bottom edges and seal them nicely -

Here's the side view so you know what I'm talking about -

Fold that in half and put the sealed side down -

Side view picture,
You might want to pat it down and make it flatter than the one shown here,
That way you'll get a nicer, more rectangular shaped pastry -

Beat one egg together with one tablespoon of water, that'll be the egg wash,
Brush evenly on the pastry surface,
Transfer them to the oven and back for 18 to 20 minutes,
Or until the top turns slightly golden brown.

Here are the final products again,
I cut one of the pastries in half so you can see the goodies in the center,
Look how flaky the pastry turned out to be,
What a nice and easy afternoon treat.

Better eat it while fresh off the oven,
Otherwise, warm up the pastry in the oven again before serving,
Don't use microwave! It'll make the whole thing soggy ( > _.< )/

    Thank you so much! I love your food too, wish I can try it!

    To Svet~
    Ha thank you!

  3. That's definitely easy but I think I can't wait for the dark choc to be made into choc pastry. I usually just break them into pieces and nibble them straight from the pack!

    I do that too! Dark chocolates are so good, I can just eat it straight up!
