This is a great dessert to serve company. It's always easy to make ahead, or it can even be done at the last minute, and it never fails to impress. The pastry bags hold two flavors of chocolate morsels. People will think you went to a lot of trouble, but the truth is that this only takes about 20 minutes to make, thanks to puff pastry and ingredients that don't have to be cooked before assembly. Note that cooking time does not include chilling time for raspberry sauce. I don't remember where I got this recipe...it was clipped from a magazine many years ago.
- 10 ounces frozen raspberries in light syrup, thawed & undrained
- 1 1⁄4 cups powdered sugar, sifted & divided
- 17 1⁄4 ounces frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
- 1 cup raspberry chocolate chips or 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsel
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Combine raspberries and one cup powdered sugar in container of an electric blender; process until smooth, stopping once to scape down the sides.
- Pour raspberry mixture through a large wire mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding seeds; chill.
- Roll each pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch square; cut each sheet of pastry into 4 squares.
- Combine raspberry flavored chocolate morsels, white chocolate morsels and chopped pecans; place evenly in middle of each pastry square. Reserve some morsel mixture for garnish, if desired. Pull up sides of pastry to enclose morsel mixture; twist ends just above morsels, pinching to seal at "neck" and spreading open top edges of pastry to fan out. (The packages will look like little gift bags that are twisted near the top.) Place filled bags on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 20 minutes, covering loosely with aluminum foil after 10 minutes to prevent excess browning.
- Spoon raspberry sauce evenly onto dessert plates; set aside. Sprinkle baked pastries with remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar and place a pastry bag in the center of each dessert place on the sauce. Sprinkle reserved morsel mixture over sauce. Serve immediately.
- Note: Pastry bags can be assembled up to 4 hours before cooking; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Commercial raspberry sauce can be substituted for the raspberry sauce. For puff pastry sheets, Pepperidge Farm is recommended.
