Let me just paint you a picture. Flaky puff pastry, toasted coconut flakes, oozing rich milk chocolate, and a gooey caramel center inside. Are you drooling yet? These little treats are jam-packed with only the best ingredients. They’re super quick and easy to whip up, which is a good thing because they also disappear just as quickly! Originally, I made these to share over coffee with a friend. They paired so well together, getting to indulge in the buttery crust and decadent chocolate while sipping on a fresh warm latte! Unfortunately for my family, there were no leftovers to share. Hence me whipping up another quick batch to share the deliciousness with everyone (again, so glad for how quick and easy these come together!)

Caramel Chocolate Pastry Puffs. Wrapped around by a flaky puff pastry, there’s a spoonful of toasted coconut underneath a gorgeous chocolate square with rich caramel filling, and then topped off with pecans. Could I load any more delicious ingredients into this beauty? (and yes, please read that question in your best Chandler Bing voice).

Now the puff pastry definitely (and quite literally) lays the foundation for this dessert- but let’s talk about the real star of the show. Endangered Species Rich Caramel + Milk Chocolate Bar. It’s made of 48% cocoa, which makes it smooth and sweet. Encased inside the creamy chocolate is an ooey-gooey caramel center. Basically every bite of this is decadent deliciousness. You can see why this recipe was made for this chocolate bar! Each chocolate square gets to be the star in it’s own pastry wrap.

Overall, this recipe for Caramel Chocolate Pastry Puffs is a dreamy blend of mouth-watering chocolate and buttery puff pastry! It’ll only take a few minutes to put together, but the compliments will keep going long after they finish!

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 bar of Endangered Species Rich Caramel + Milk Chocolate Bar
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes, toasted
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water

Using a grater, carefully grate the frozen butter on the larger hole option of the grater. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, attach the dough hook. Mix together the flour, salt, and grated butter. Add in the water gradually. Allow the water to bring the dough together to form a ball. Do not over knead the dough.
Lightly flour a surface and place the dough on top. Using a rolling-pin, roll the dough into a rectangle that is approximately 1/4 inch thick. Gently fold the dough into thirds. Wrap with plastic tightly and refrigerate for 1 – 2 hours.
When ready, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Create the egg wash by mixing the egg and water in a bowl until they blend together. Set aside.
Take the dough out of the fridge and gently unfold it. Cut the dough into 6 equal squares. Top each square with 1 tablespoon of coconut flakes and then a chocolate square. Wrap the pastry as you see fit.* Gently brush the pastry with the egg wash and sprinkle the chopped pecans on top.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool for 1-2 minutes and then serve fresh!

    Or… you could get a package of frozen puff pastry, thaw, cut into squares and stuff with chocolate/caramel candy of your choice, pinch closed, brush with egg wash and bake.
