This is such a delicious and easy dessert that you have got to try! Puff Pastry with chocolate ganache sandwiched inside! It’s rich and decadent!
I can’t think of a better dessert to make! You will need to make the ganache ahead of time but that just takes a few minutes and then you are ready to go!
I make lots of puff pastry desserts around here like lemon raspberry cream horns which are always a favorite of ours.
Puff pastry is a butter flavored pastry that you can find in the freezer section of the grocery store.
A little back story.
When my daughter was in 9th grade her Spanish class had an assignment where they could earn extra credit for bringing in an authentic dish to share with the class. We searched high and low for something truly authentic.
She immediately said she wanted to make Tres Leches Cake. I told her no, we should try to find something more authentic and less common. Something that neither of us had heard of before.
What is a migeultio?
Well we found Miguelitos de Chocolate or Miguelitos with Chocolate, which is a pastry made with puff pastry and chocolate sandwiched in between them topped with powdered sugar.
How are they served?
You can find miguelitos made several ways. One way is after they are baked they can be dipped in a honey syrup and cooled. Another way is to cut them in half and fill with a pastry cream. The last way was with chocolate! Obviously chocolate was our choice!
These are so simple to make, even your kids can do it! My teenager made them all by herself and they were a hit! ENJOY! Make sure you head on over to Food Fanatic to check out this Miguelitos with Chocolate Recipe!
