  • 2 egg yolks

  • 2 tsp. water

  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

  • 1 pkg. (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed

  • 1/3 of a 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate pieces or semi sweet chocolate chunks (about 3/4 cup)

  • 1 tbsp. confectioners' sugar


  1. Heat the oven to 375°F.  Beat the egg yolks and water in a small bowl with a fork.

  2. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface.  Unfold 1 pastry sheet on the work surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 16-inch square.  Brush the pastry with the egg mixture.  Cut into 16 (4-inch) squares.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

  3. Place 1 teaspoon chocolate pieces in the center of each pastry.  Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle. Crimp the edges with a fork to seal.  Prick the tops of the pastries with a fork. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture.  Place the pastries onto 3 baking sheets.  Freeze for 15 minutes or until firm.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Sprinkle with the confectioners’ sugar.

  5. Flavor Variation: For Chocolate-Raspberry Pillows, place 1 fresh raspberry with the chocolate pieces in the center of each pastry square before folding and baking as directed above.

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 was fabulous! It's a little more difficult to make than it sounded, but they look, smell and taste great, so it was worth it"

"My ten year old granddaughter made these and they where very very good. She drizzled white chocolate on top when they cooled down. It's also 5+ stars!"
