TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Unfold thawed puff pastry on cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut pastry into nine squares. Place on baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to wire rack to cool completely.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine strawberries, sugar and vanilla; set aside. In another bowl, combine pudding mix and milk; whisk until blended. Add whipped topping and whisk until thoroughly blended. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 3. To assemble, split puff pastry squares horizontally for a total of 18 squares. Set aside six tops. Place six of the remaining puff pastry pieces on individual serving plates. Spread about 1/4 cup pudding mixture over each pastry square. Top with a spoonful of strawberries and another piece of puff pastry. Spread remaining pudding mixture over pastry pieces. Top with remaining strawberries and reserved pastry tops.
  • 4. Place chocolate chips in a small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on medium-high for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze chocolate over napoleons. Yield: 6 servings.

"This sounds delicious. I have not made it yet, but I would use Fat-free, sugar-free pudding and fat-free topping. This would cut the calories a lot and make it more diet friendly."
