Chocolate Whirls

These bite sized treats are chocolatey goodness surrounded in a whirl of puff pastry. Paired with a glass of milk, the chocolate whirls make a scrumptiously light dessert! This recipe was inspired from the “Chocolate Whirls” in The Ultimate Cookie Book by Catherine Atkinson.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup superfine sugar
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lb 2 oz puff pastry
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • golden raisins (to taste)

Method:

First mix the sugar, cocoa powder, and eggs together until smooth. Next, spread the softened butter over each puff pastry  sheet until evenly distributed, then cover with the chocolate mixture. Sprinkle desired amount of raisins over the pastry. Roll the dough into a scroll shape then cut into sections about an inch wide. Place on a baking sheet and put in the oven at 425F for 10-15 minutes. Once the Whirls are cooled, lightly dust them with powdered sugar.

Makes about 20 Whirls
