Ingredients
  

  • 17.3 oz. package puff pastry sheets
  • 4 - 1.55 oz. Hershey’s dark chocolate candy bars
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Prepare the egg wash by whisking together the egg and 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Fold the sides of the pastry over the chocolate and wrap the top piece over the side and press into the bottom of the packet to seal. You can add a bit of egg wash between the pastry where you are sealing it to help hold it together.

Notes

Store in an airtight container 1-2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Make these any size you’d like.
Dark or milk chocolate will work for these. Hershey’s brand works well. We tried a couple other brands of chocolate bar/varieties and the chocolate leaked from the pastry packet and burned.
Sealing the wrapped dough onto the underside of the pastry helps these to maintain a symmetrical shape when cooking.
The egg wash will help the pastry dough stick to itself when sealing. It also gives a nice golden sheen to the baked pastry.
Pastries are best served warm just out of the oven.
Hershey’s bars are easy to use because they are already sectioned off. Just snap into four equal sections.
