  • 1 pkg. (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate pieces (about 1 cup)

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

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

  • 3 tbsp. confectioners' sugar


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Stir the chocolate pieces and walnuts in a small bowl.

  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry into a 12-inch square. Cut the pastry into 9 (4-inch) squares. Place about 2 tablespoons chocolate mixture in the center of each square. Brush the edges of the squares with water. Bring the corners of each square to the center on top of the filling. Twist tightly to seal, fanning out the corners. Place the pastries 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.

  3. Bake the pastries for 15 minutes or until they're golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Sprinkle the pastries with confectioners' sugar.

  4. Alternate Preparation: For large bundles, cut the pastry into 4 (6-inch) squares and place about 1/3 cup chocolate mixture in center of each square. Proceed as directed. Makes 4 servings.

If any cracks form while you’re working with Puff Pastry, just rub with a little water and press to seal the dough together.

You can brush an egg-wash glaze (1 egg plus 1 tsp. water) over the Puff Pastry to create a rich, golden sheen when baked.

Make sure the edges of your Puff Pastry are cut—a folded edge will not rise and puff.

To seal stuffed Puff Pastries, pinch the edges together or press with the tines of a fork, just as you’d seal a piecrust.

"This recipe, which used to be called chocolate bags, used to call for chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, miniature marshmallows and the nuts. The diversity of the different chips was a plus. My notes say "Do not be tempted to overfill. You must be able to tightly pinch closed the bags." Also, look for a raspberry sauce to place the baked bags on; it's much prettier."

"I used pecans, and provided spoons for my family. They wanted to eat all of the insides of the bundle at one time. They were enjoyed so much and were just the perfect size for dessert."
