Tips to make the Chocolate Peanut Butter Twists:

Ingredients:

Only a few ingredients are needed to make the puff pastry twists filled with chocolate and peanut butter:

  • Peanut butter: use a smooth peanut butter. Chunky peanut butter will make cutting the strips more difficult. The recipe only uses 1/4 cup of peanut butter. I recommend using this amount else the peanut butter will seep out of the puff pastry while baking. No worries – the pastries still pack a strong peanut butter punch.
  • Chocolate: use a cheese grater or finely chop the chocolate used for filling the pastry.
  • Puff Pastry: store-bought or homemade puff pastry may be used.
  • Egg: lightly whip an egg and apply to the puff pastry prior to forming the twist and baking.
  • Granulated Sugar: just a bit of sugar is sprinkled over the pastry before baking.

Time needed: 45 minutes.

Step-by-Step Instructions to create the Peanut Butter Chocolate Twists (check out my YouTube video to guide you through the recipe):

  1. Roll the puff pastry

    Roll a sheet of puff pastry to a 9″ x 15″ rectangle. Spread the peanut butter thinly on the bottom half of the pastry. Sprinkle a row of chocolate on the top part of the peanut butter then sprinkle remaining chocolate below the row. Note: the peanut butter should be spread thinly so it doesn’t leak out while baking.puff pastry with chocolate and peanut butter spread evenly

  2. Fold and cut puff pastry

    Fold the top half of the puff pastry over the peanut butter and chocolate. Press lightly to seal. Working from the open edge of the puff pastry, slice the folded pastry into 5 rectangles.cutting pastry to make chocolate twists

  3. Slice and twist pastry.

    Brush each of the five pastries lightly with a whipped egg (this will help seal the pastry so it holds together while baking. Make four slits in the puff pastry – start cutting the slits approximately one inch from the top of the pastry. Twist each of the slits sealing the ends with your fingers. Roll the pastry over itself working from the top.making twists using puff pastry
