  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 6 tbsp. creamy peanut butter

  • 1 bar (4 ounces) sweet baking chocolate, broken into 18 squares

  • 2/3 cup miniature marshmallows


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into an 18x9-inch rectangle.  Cut into 18 (3-inch) squares.  Press the pastry squares into 18 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.  Spoon 1 teaspoon peanut butter into each tartlet shell.  Top each with 1 square chocolate and about 3 marshmallows.

  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Puff Pastry fillings should be at room temperature. If they’re hot, they can begin to melt the pastry layers, which will affect the pastry’s ability to rise and puff.

How to tell if Puff Pastry is done baking? Take a sharp knife and nick off a teensy piece to test for crispness and flakiness.

Use a long, heavy rolling pin to roll out your Puff Pastry dough: it helps create a pastry that’s even all over and you won’t have to press down too hard to roll it out.

You can bake Puff Pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. For a more even rise, place a sheet of parchment paper on top of your pastry as well.

"Delicious combo of peanutbutter and chocolate, you only need two marshmallows though. Three is too many."

"They were very good, but the bottoms were a little soggy. I sprayed the muffin pains lightly with vegetable spray. Was this a mistake. I was afraid they would not come out of the pan. Tasted really good though. very rich."

"I made this in bar form instead of individual cups and used chocolate chips instead. It turned out great! Roll it out to the same proportions and spread the p.b. over the whole pastry then sprinkle with chocolate chips and marshmallows. Yummy!"

"I use good quality dark chocolate bars and break into quarters. I also put the chocolate first then put the peanut butter. Also I don't put marshmallows on top while cooking it makes a big mess. When they come out of the oven I put a teaspoon of creamy marshmallow. It melts perfectly. I love it this recipe."
