Delicious puff pastries filled with chocolate, caramel and hazelnut. Baked for a bit in the oven and you have your own pain au Chocolat variant.
For the Swiepswoepswap, an exchange among Food instagrammers, I was linked to Lizzylizzblog.
While I was wandering around I came across hazelnut chocolate puff pastries. And could you wonder further. I don't. The plea was settled and these were going to be made..
And it turned out to be the perfect choice. The creamy chocolate, the crispy puff pastry and the crunchy hazelnuts. I see this appear on our menu at the next brunch!
- You want a less sweet recipe leave the caramel out. You can also substitute milk chocolate with dark chocolate.
- Let the chocolate mixture cool down, otherwise it's quite difficult to form puff pastries.
- Substitute milk chocolate with hazelnut with white chocolate or any other chocolate you like.
- Instead of puff pastry you can use croissant dough. You can even spread the filling on top of the dough and form croissant
- Sprinkle the puff pastries with a creamy salted caramel sauce.
- Don't store these pastries, eat them right away.
