These flaky puff pastry horns filled with luscious chocolate cream are my favorite. They are super easy to make with puff pastry sheets,whipping cream and cocoa powder as basic ingredients.

Cream horns molds are easily available in stores but here I made them with homemade molds made with aluminum foil and parchment paper. You can also use ice cream cones wrapped in non-stick foil .

Here I filled this flakypuff pastry horns with some simple chocolate whipped cream. You can try the same recipe with different kinds of whipped cream or you can even experiment with different kinds of filling like cream cheese or custard filled cream horns. This recipe is super easy and versatile.

If you never had this irresistible cream horn , now is the time to try them!

    If I make the pastry horns the day before I plan to serve them, how do I store them to keep them crisp?

      when i used to make 'clothespin cookies' basically the same idea only it was from scratch, this type of puff pastry needs to be put in a thin cardboard shoe box, cardboard cake or cupcake box from the bakery. Do not store them in a tupper ware type container! the oils will start to separate from the gentle pastry. I hope this helps
