Make a show-stopping Christmas dessert with only two ingredients. It sounds too good to be true, we know, but trust us. This is our new favorite go-to Christmas dessert that is cheap to buy and even easier to make.
All you need is a slab of chocolate—we recommended dark chocolate—and two ready-made rolls of puff pastry that you can purchase at any supermarket. On the day you want to make your dessert, ensure that you take the ready-made puff pastry out of the freezer or fridge at least an hour before you are ready to start baking. This will ensure that the pasty is fully defrosted and will feel more dough-like. This is an essential step because the last thing you want is for your pasty to break before you even start.
Once your pasty has fully defrosted, you can roll and shape the dough into any shape you prefer. We love to keep the pasty and simply place the slab of chocolate in the middle. Take the second defrosted roll and cover the slab of chocolate. Here you can cut and shape the pasty to look like a Christmas tree. You can also roll and shape the dough into a snowflake or another shape of your choice.
Ensure that the order is pasty, chocolate, and pastry, and you are good to go. Once you are happy, place on a lined baking tray and pop into a preheated oven at 350 degrees and bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool down, and dust with powdered sugar if desired.
