Quick Pastry TreatsMonday, June 13, 2011
With the days being dryer my boys are tiring themselves out more at the moment and I’m not a huge fan of giving them biscuits from the shops so I wanted something which I can make up in 5 mins and cooks quickly. They love these swirls, I tend to use a high cocoa low sugar chocolate spread as mine cant have dairy either but nutella works great in there as well!
Pastry & Chocolate Swirls
Chocolate Pastry Swirls
1 block of puff pastry
1 jar of nutella or other chocolate spread
200g of flaked hazelnuts (or any other nuts)
caster sugar for dusting
Roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface.
Spread the chocolate spread all over it and sprinkle with the nuts.
Roll the pastry from either end into the centre. When the two sides meet, dab a little water in the middle to help them stick.
Slice the roll into 1 cm slices and place each slice on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
Firm them down with a palate knife and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 180°C for about 14 minutes or until golden brown.
