- 1 3.5-oz. bar milk chocolate, find the best you can
Ingredinents for the Glaze:
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon water
Go ahead & line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
Preheat your oven to 400 F, or 200 C.
Cut the each chocolate bar into six 2×3/4-inch pieces.
Unfold the puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface. Cut it into 12 squares.
Lay 1 chocolate piece on the edge of a pastry square and roll up the dough tightly, completely enclosing the chocolate. Repeat with remaining pastry.
Place the rolls on a baking sheet, seam side down.
Brush the tops of the rolls with the egg wash. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
