Raspberry Chocolate Puffs Recipe

"This is my 'show-off' dessert because it makes a spectacular presentation," says Anneliese Deising of Plymouth, Michigan. "Every time I serve it, my friends rave about this fancy and fun treat. Although it looks like you fussed, the recipe is actually quick and easy."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • Fresh raspberries and additional white chips, chocolate chips and confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine chips and pecans; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 12-in. square. Cut in half lengthwise and widthwise, making eight 6-in. squares.
  • 2. Spoon the chip mixture in the center of each square. Pull all corners together below the tips of the corners, forming a pouch. Fold the corner tips down.
  • 3. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  • 4. In a food processor, puree raspberries and confectioners' sugar. Strain and discard seeds. Spoon raspberry sauce onto dessert plates; top with pastry pouches. Garnish with raspberries and additional chips; dust with additional confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
