This is a recipe for those chocolate lovers. I've had this recipe for years and everyone loves these sweet pastries. I like to have them for special occasions, like Christmas morning when I want to make something special for the boys. Cooking time does not include freezing time. Also wasn't sure on the actual weight of puff pastry... recipe just says 1 pkg.
