I just love puff pastry. It looks so fancy and makes everyone think you tried so hard but all you did was put it in the oven. This is one of the fanciest-looking but easiest desserts I think I’ve ever made. Plus it only has four ingredients, so that’s pretty awesome.
- 1 package puff pastry, defrosted
- Sugar for dusting
- Chocolate ganache (mine was frozen leftover; recipe available here)
- Whipped cream (homemade or not)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut circles about 2 inches in diameter out of the puff pastry. I used the bottom of a milk glass for these. Then, cut smaller holes into half of the circles–I used the bottom of my cayenne pepper container.
Using the complete circles as the base, put the cut out circles on top–when they bake they puffs up and make a pretty little cup. I also baked the insides of the circles that I cut out. Before putting in the oven, sprinkle them all with a little sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until puffed and just barely golden.
I used the ganache I made ages ago to go with my cheesecake–it’s been in the freezer since then so it’s kept perfectly. Allow to come to room temperature and put in the microwave for 15 seconds, just enough for it to start to get melty. Spoon into the puff pastry cups. If you baked the insides of the circles, pop the top off and fill with chocolate before putting the lid back on. Serve with whip cream and ENJOY! Yum.
