Easy, delicious and impressive. Mini Chocolate Puff Pastry Rolls. With only 5 ingredients, it’s a snap to make these 2 bite treats.
1 (17.3 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed but cold
2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 egg, beaten
Lightly flour your work surface. Unfold the puff pastry sheets and lay the 2 pieces of pastry side by side with the short side facing you.
Brush the sheets with the melted butter.
Starting at the top, cut strips that are 2 inches wide by 15 inches long. You should end up with 5 strips from each sheet of puff pastry.
Divide the chocolate chips evenly along the strips of pastry. Leave about 1 inch without chips on either end of each strip.
Beginning at the skinny end of each strip, roll up the pastry. Continue rolling each strip of the pastry the same way.
Place the pastry rolls seam side down about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
Lightly brush the rolls with the beaten egg.
Sprinkle each roll generous with the sanding sugar.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. The pastries should be a dark golden brown. If the pastries are getting too brown, cover lightly with a piece of foil for the final few minutes of baking time.
Remove the pastries from the oven. Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
- Completely thaw the frozen puff pastry before trying to work with it. Place in the refrigerator for about 6 hours. Or remove the dough from the box and place it on a baking sheet or work surface at room temperature. It should be ready to use in about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours. Just check it every 15 minutes or so. You don’t want it to get too soft because it will be more difficult to work with.
- Use a ruler or tape measure as a guide to cut even strips of puff pastry. Like I did in the photo above.
- Space the pastries about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. They will expand. And also they will bake more evenly if properly space on the sheet.
- With many layers in each pastry roll, be sure to completely bake the pastries. If they are getting too brown the last few minutes of baking, lightly cover with foil.
- Even though you will be eager to take your first bite of the flaky chocolatey goodness, let the rolls cool and set up for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
