Chocolate Cream Squares
Enjoy these buttery, flaky cream puffs with rich, real-whipped cream inside as well as melted, sweet chocolate. These are so delicious!
Servings: 12 puffs
- 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
Open slightly thawed puff pastry and cut into even rectangles using a pastry wheel.
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.
