Chocolate-Filled Real Cream Squares
I cannot believe that Christmas is already over. With all the anticipation, and excitement leading up to it, it came and went just way too fast. I have already taken down my tree, and left just the wintery decor up. You might not believe it, but I even put up my first Valentine’s Day heart.
When it gets dreary, and dark here in New England, those pink and red hearts add a much needed pop of color in my life so that is when I add a few to my home. Since many of you *might* be looking for some tasty Valentine’s Day desserts- or any day really I thought I would formally share these Chocolate-Filled Real Cream Squares.
Made with puff pastry, these Chocolate-Filled Real Cream Squares are pretty darn simple and make for a great “hacked elegance dessert”. I added some chocolate pudding to each, but I did make my own real whipped cream because nothing comes close to that sort of decadence. Canned whipped topping melts way too quick and would not work for these.
- 1 package of Puff Pastry
- 2 cups of chocolate pudding
- 1 8 ounce container of heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of confectionery sugar
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels melted
Open slightly thawed puff pastry and cut into even rectangles using a pastry wheel
Bake according to the package
Once done, carefully cut each rectangle in half
Add a dollop of chocolate pudding to each
To make the real-whipped cream, add your 1/4 cup confectionery sugar, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl, and beat on high until stiff peaks form
Once done, transfer cream to a pastry bag
Pipe each square with cream, and then sprinkle the remaining powdered sugar gently over each.
I must warn you that these are way too good so please enjoy them with company so you are not left with too many!
