Exquisite 'Checkers-Chocolate Puff Pastry' Has Us Absolutely in Awe

Have you ever seen a recipe that makes your heart skip a beat? We think this next recipe will do just that. TikTok content creator @breadbakebeyond shows us an easy way to make a gorgeous chocolate pastry at home. Trust us, you’ll need this checkers-chocolate puff pastry in your life.

If we didn't know any better, we'd say this must be what heaven looks like!

How dreamy is this beautiful creation? It’s hard to believe that such a simple recipe yields such an impressive result. This sensational treat starts with a sheet of puff pastry, rolled out onto a parchment lined baking pan. Cut 6-8 slices along the edges of the pastry while leaving room in the center to hold two layers of white and dark chocolate. That’s right, two layers of chocolate. (Yep, this recipe was made for us.) 

Break the chocolate bars into cubes, then layer and checker the pieces onto the dough. Braid the cut edges over the chocolate pieces and fold the ends in to seal all that dreamy chocolate inside. Brush an egg yolk over the pasty and sprinkle with slivered almonds. Oh my! Bake that dreamy creation for 25 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, and then dust on a little powdered sugar. We need this right now!

Viewers were impressed by this easy idea, and @JJ asks, “What is this magic?” We agree, it’s magic for sure! Commenter @moriyabenishay tells us, “OMG, it’s looks so good I want to eat that.” We do, too!
