Chocolate Twists

PREP TIME- 8 minutes
COOK TIME- 15-20 minutes

I have started to notice all my recent posts relate to food! So here’s another one!

I’m a big fan of ready rolled pastries, they’re quick and easy and I always have some in my fridge ready to make quick deserts for the kids or pies/parcels for dinners. So with that being said, here’s how I do my chocolate twists with minimal effort but maximum indulgence.

Here’s what you’ll need-

  • A sheet of ready rolled puff pastry. (You’ll find these in the cold section in a supermarket, usually near the milk, cream, cheese etc)
  • A jar of Nutella or hazelnut spread.
  • A spoonful of melted butter.
  • Some icing sugar to dust.

Method-

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. You’re going to roll out your puff pastry so it’s nice and flat and laid width ways.
  3. Take a knife and cut the pastry into strips, you want each section about an inch apart.
  4. After you’ve done this you should end up with about 8 or 9 strips.
  5. Now you’re going to spoon some chocolate spread onto one strip making sure it’s covered evenly. So if you have 8 strips 4 of these should be covered in Nutella.
  6. With the other 4 strips you’re going to lay them on top of the ones covered in chocolate.
  7. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  8. Now take each strip and twist them, I either keep twisting so they look a little rope-like and chocolate runs in circles or I pinch in opposite directions to create more of a plait looking pastry.
  9. Once you’ve twisted all 4, lay them on the baking paper and lightly dust the melted butter over the pastry, this’ll help them go golden brown in the oven.
  10. Pop them into the oven for at least 15 minutes, after that keep checking on them every couple of minutes to prevent them burning.
  11. Once cooked transfer them onto a wire rack and leave to cool. After a few minutes you should find they harden up a bit.
  12. Dust with icing sugar and serve!

Once you know how to do these you won’t forget! I make them all the time and everybody loves them!

If you fancy making mini twists here’s how you can do it-

  1. Take your 8 strips of puff pastry and cover half of each strip with chocolate spread.
  2. Fold them all in half and twist them.
  3. You should end up with 8 mini twists rather than 4 large ones!
