I am not a chocolate lover.Period. The only chocolaty stuff of my preference would be some sort of nuts/wafers coated with chocolate.Ferraro is something which I can relate to. Kitkat/Perk is another. Pure chocolate ? Nah! Guess u get the idea. So its not a surprise that I adore this recipe for Walnut strudel since it has all the chocolate combined with not only nuts ( that too walnuts! There just something with walnuts and chocolate! Yum! )but also wafery puff pastry enclosing it.
Sheer Heaven in a bite. I was cleaning out my pantry and came upon some itsy bitsy pieces of some dark chocolate chunks, white ,semi sweet chocolate chips along with some vanilla flavored dessert fondue candies. I always have a box of puff pastry in my freezer for emergency. So that did it. The result was in one word 'Yummmmmm'
Its v simple and does not need lots of work. The prep time takes only 5-6 min max.Rest is done by the oven :-) Here goes
Preheat Oven to 375F. Take a M/W bowl and add the chocolate chips,butter,milk. M/W for 1 to 1 1/2 min, stirring in the middle to avoid burning.
Take out and keep stirring till its all smooth and without lumps.
Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a floured surface so that there are no cracks and spread the chocolate mixture on the pastry leaving 1 1/2 inches in the ends.Sprinkle the walnuts on the chocolate along with cinnamon.
Roll it up like a jelly role and then brush it with melted butter.
Place it in the oven for 30-45min until golden brown. Remove and dust it with cinnamon and powdered sugar.Cut into slices and get ready for a heavenly exp :-)
