What happens when you wrap a chocolate bar inside the puff pastry sheet and bake it? Epic chocolate puff pastry roll!
Gooey melted chocolate on the inside, crispy flaky crust on the outside – you surely need this chocolate roll in your life right now! Making this chocolate roll is so easy, it’s almost like a joke :) A jumbo chocolate bar makes an instant filling and packaged frozen puff pastry dough makes an instant crust! Now you are going to ask yourself – “why didn’t I think of that”?
This amazing chocolate puff pastry roll tastes similar to a chocolate croissant. It’s like a chocolate croissant in a log form! You won’t believe how amazing your house will smell while it’s baking and how epic the melted chocolate will taste with the hot freshly baked flaky golden-brown dough! Don’t burn your tongue on a hot melted chocolate! Wait as patiently as you can till it’s safe enough to eat! Yummmmmmmm!
Puff pastry packages usually come with two sheets of puff pastry dough. Here’s your excuse to make 2 chocolate rolls instead of one! Just remember to thaw the puff pastry dough before using, so it’s pliable enough to wrap around the chocolate. You can either thaw the puff pastry dough in a refrigerator overnight, or for 30 minutes on the counter at room temperature.
