Equipment

  • Stand Mixer
  • large baking sheet
  • pastry cutter
  • Piping Bag
  • large star tip for pastry bag

Ingredients

  • 17.3 ounces puff pastry (1 box) thawed
  • 8 ounces Heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups chocolate pudding
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar reserve 1 tablespoon for cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chocolate morsels melted until creamy

Instructions

  • Bake according to the package on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Once done, allow pastry puffs to cool before separating the top layer from the bottom.
  • Add a dollop of chocolate pudding to each bottom half.

Real Whipped Cream

  • To make the real-whipped cream, add your 1/4 cup confectioners sugar, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl, and beat on high until stiff peaks form. This will take between 3-5 minutes.
  • Once done, transfer whipped cream to a pastry bag.
  • Pipe each square with cream, and then sprinkle the remaining powdered sugar gently over each.
  • Lastly, swizzle the melted chocolate over each, and voila- you have yourself an elegant batch of Chocolate-Filled Real Cream Squares.  
  • Store in the refrigerator until you are ready to consume. These last up to 36 hours for best taste.
