Valentine’s Day and Romantic Food

When I think of Valentine’s Day and/or romantic foods, I think of chocolate.

In fact, honestly, when I think of any holiday I think of chocolate, but we’re not talking about any other holiday. We are talking about great Valentine’s day desserts today, and this one hits the mark.

We enjoyed this Valentine’s Chocolate Puff Pastry Recipe. It’s fantastic even if you make it another time! 

I’m not sure why I connect Valentine’s day and chocolate pops into my head. It’s probably because retail stores market so many boxes of chocolate and somewhere along the line, I just accepted it.

So when This Week’s Cravings theme suggested Valentine’s Treats or Romantic Dinners for Your Loved Ones, all I could think of was chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. And dessert. Because… chocolate dessert. Yes please!

Because who doesn’t need a little more chocolate in their life?

We then started thinking about some of the fantastic treats and things that we’ve made over time. And what we’ve made for special occasions. Then I remembered the puff pastries we made last year for Valentine’s day.

It was decided immediately those would be the perfect recipe to share. It was truly a natural progression and they were SO good. Even if the photos don’t do them justice!

A Valentine's Chocolate Stuffed Puff Pastry Recipe that is incredibly delicate and flaky, stuffed with gooey, melted chocolate.

Ingredients

Pastries:

  • 1 pkg. crescent rolls OR homemade crescent roll dough
  • 18 [Hershey's Chocolate Candy Drops|http://www.itsalldirect2u.com/Hersheys_milk_chocolate_drops.aspx], you can also use choc. chips or a mini Hershey bar in each
  • 1 Tbs. whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. sugar

Chocolate Syrup Topping:

  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • ¾ c. water
  • ¾ c. cocoa, we use the dark cocoa all the time
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbs. corn syrup

Instructions

For the Pastry:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray baking pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. If you use the canned crescent rolls, open the pkg. and create one solid sheet by using your fingers to pinch all the edges together and smooth out (with rolling pin, if desired).
  3. If you use homemade pastry dough, (we make our own crescent rolls, sometimes), roll it out flat.
  4. Whichever method you use, cut the dough into 6" squares.
  5. Lay them onto your baking sheet or cookie pan.
  6. Place 3 chocolate drops or a few chocolate chips or one mini Hershey bar into the center of each dough square.
  7. Bring the 4 corners of the dough, and pinch to close. Pinch all the sides as well.
  8. Brush the top of each pastry with whipping cream and then sprinkle with sugar (we used pink sugar from Wilton in honor of Valentine's Day)
  9. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. While they are baking, prepare the syrup.

For the Chocolate Syrup:

  1. Boil the water and add the sugar. Boil until dissolved. Whisk in the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Cook for about 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Spoon onto plates before setting pastries on top. Drizzle over the top of each pastries. Serve everything warm.
  4. Remaining chocolate syrup can be kept for about 2 weeks in container in the refrigerator.

I came to this post too late for valentines day (my girlfriend got treated to a McDonalds drive-thru), but I think this recipe will make up for it. Will try the Chocolate Puff Pastry recipe and hopefully it will turn out as nice as the photograph looks.

Jennifer, they are very, very tasty. If you add a bit of oil to the chocolate inside, the chocolate river will ooze even more. I have several different ways I've made these - my favorite is to mix up a chocolate ganache and stuff it inside. Talk about a river - and amazing flavors. Yum! I will make sure to check out your Fusion Fridays. I feel bad, as I'm not sure I've ever been before. I'll change that! Thanks!!
